      I figure if they got that far they've ALREADY read it.

      I'll look forward to hooking up with you on the decals whenever you can! :-D Thanks

        Thanks for helping to spread the word Jarlaxle. If this post helps even beyond the 17 who've already advised me they found hanging chads then it's all good. There's no such thing as too much knowledge sometimes.

          Wow.

          ^
          x2

          You know, when neighbors stop spending money on each other's stuff, eventually, neither one of them will have any to spend. I wonder why the economy is in the crapper? I don't think it takes an economic engineer to become the U.S. president's advisor. Just ask any resident of Detroit, Michigan.

          I cringe when making credit card purchases, due to the surcharges made at businesses per use, sent to overseas accounts. I will hit the bank, before going out to local businesses, especially ones that aren't chains. Fair trade or die, bitches.

          One of the first things I do when I make a big purchase, anymore, is look for a maker's mark.

          If I see anything headed to places overseas where there is zero quality control (looking at you most of Asia), I will immediately think of an alternative. I either find something else or do without.

          It's kept me from buying certain Craftsman tools, lots of auto parts and even clothing, lately.

          Made in China

          Made in Taiwan

          All I can read is "Look Somewhere Else"

          I just spent $200 bones on a pair of work boots from Red Wing. 100% of materials and hand cobbled in the United States. Best f-n' boots I've owned since the last pair of U.K. made Doctor Martens I owned were grown out of, in High School.

          Those are also made in China, now, thanks to the Nike/ Gap corporation buying them out and relocating production. A friend had a pair. The leather faded in the heel and broke loose, after he epoxied a layer of the soul back together, before he threw them in the trash, TWO months into using them... to ride a motorcycle to an office job. And he still paid $130 for them, just like I paid $100 for mine in HS.

          One of the nicest new things I've purchased recently for my car was that Street Demon carburetor. It was adjusted live and put away in the box with traces of test fluid. I took it apart to rejet it for Denver and found amazing quality control and craftsmanship everywhere you can see.

          The truth is, you can't get quality stuff for cheap, anymore. That's just how it is.

          Save a buck now on crap products. Because you'll spend two, later, replacing them.

          For every dollar I've spent on new stuff, I think I've spent five on 2nd hand stuff, in the past 2-3 years.

            It's not in the crapper because we're buying stuff from "them". It's in the crapper because "they" aren't buying anything from us. All you have to do is look at rate of imported cars into this country VS exported. Nuff said.

              I finally got a chance to look this thread, and boy am I disappointed in the response by Rick Moroso. Kinda wish I would have ordered a different type of epoxy the other day. All you did was point out a flaw that could potentially cause big problems, and keep alot of people from destroying something they worked long and hard for. He didn't even really have to do anything, like he said, they stopped producing them in 2008. All he did was piss alot of people off and lose at least a few customers. Makes me wish I still worked at Summit, I could have mentioned it to some people in QC and they would have pulled and inspected all kinds of stuff.

                  But Rob, we have to actually MAKE SOMETHING HERE first for them to be able to buy it. Compare our exports now with those of even 20 or 30 years ago ...

                  One thing is certain: You will never get a box of parts from PSC that were restored overseas. Just like my ol' long lost relative Gabby Johnson in Blazing Saddles, I wash born here, an I wash raished here, and dadgum it I am gonna die here, an no sidewindin', bushwackin', hornswagglin' cracker croaker is gonna rouin me bishen cutter. :-D

                      Thanks for posting this Leanna. I have a set of Moroso's out in the shop that I plan on using on my teen. I'll be sure to check them out first. Have to see how things work out on my build, but may send them to you, and let you work your magic.

                        Idk how you wouldn't see that when installing the grommets. If ya miss that you might want to make sure you got oil in the pan, because damn....
                        As far as Moroso, I think most folks are looking at this from an owner/forum herd mentaility, and not from the perspective of a manufacturer with possible liabilities. 100% QC is still only 92-93% effective. He shouldn't have even responded on social media tbh.
                        Thanks for the heads up, I have a set of these on the shelf and was gonna toss them on in the next couple weeks. They'll be getting triple combed:)

                          Well, to me, it shows a total "don't give a shit" attitude from a parts vendor. The mere fact that he said "those haven't been made since 2008" shows that he doesn't give a shit about anything but getting your money NOW and nothing else down the road. It was pretty clear as crystal to me. That's a really crappy attitude.

                          I can do without another Moroso product. Ever. Screw that guy.

                            bottom line is big corp. and politicians sold out this country long ago. greed and politicians has gone hand in hand for many decades no doubt. pitiful.

                            couple decades we were told that our "future" was in technology, but yet we are so stupid the Chinese steals it daily. greed of corp. sends production of good overseas knowing it will be low quality crab, so the owners and/ or top execs can put a few more million in their pockets...

                            look at the greed of the medical/ drug industry!!!

                            we pump American crude, refine it here, and ship it overseas. ha

                            tell me this, when the farmer and trucker goes broke, what will the yuppies eat??????????

                                  I understand, that's kinda my initial reaction as well. But I like to ponder, and have started to understand my initial reactions are not the best because I'm pissy. I drive/support dodge, the people who took money from every taxpayers pocket no matter who they are and you didn't even get a shitty valve cover. Kinda hard to balance boycotting Moroso with that.

                                  You saw the part where she said she tried to contact him before and he didn't answer, right?

                                  I also say she did the right thing without a doubt, as my engine and my resources are more important than Moroso's embarrassment over a tooling malfunction every damn day of the week.

                                  If he wanted to be the hero here he had his chance to be involved in a positive way, but that reaction makes it look like it would have been a cover up attempt.

                                  All he had to do was say "Thank you Leanna, for helping to watch out for Moroso's reputation and get this information out."

                                      Being page three and pert near THREE YEARS later, this is not my initial reaction. But it is my permanent one.

                                            Actually skizzo, those valve covers belonged to the guy you were replying to, RustyRatRod. So he DID get a shitty valve cover. :D

                                            he only joined to do damage control... If you notice he didn't do a damn thing about this but complain about Leanna posting this...

                                            He only joined to reply to Leanna's post, he hasn't posted since... what a POS....
