WOW is correct!!!! dan you should watch your tone
man/kid! Have some respect for the elders who know
much much more than you!

I had Bruce call me to confurm parts availability just
today, he just over nighted me parts last week that I
needed ASAP..he did that on his own dime by the way
cause he knew I needed the stuff rite away.

 Hummmm...wonder how many of us will jump at the RE
button to reply to any questions you may have for now
I won't sell you parts..I even think AW is too good
for you. & I like AW by the way..nice bunch of V8'ers
over there :-)

 But good luck in the future dan.
