Default cheap parts..

Im a sucker for cheap parts but when I ordered the guide plates from ebay for my gt40p's got for 19 bucks to my door yah....
well one of them the pushrod wouldnt even go thru it so i modified it
the other ones the wouldnt line up and the rockers where crooked but hey i went for it.
well the first test drive the one i modifies the rockers loosened up.
the others were eating the pushrods for lunch..
needles to say i spent 50 bucks for the svo ford ones all the rockers lined up perfect and wouldnt you know it all the pushrods fit in them lol..

SO that was my lesson NO MORE CHEAP NO NAME PARTS!!!!!!!!!!!!!
i guess you get what you pay for.....i hate buying things twice..

Eh, if you go with used stuff off of forums and stuff you can get good stuff for cheap. Ebay is generally all junk. Be careful with that stuff.
