Almost ordered BGA lifters from England, but decided to wait for comments as noted.Interesting discussion with Gil. He has very good experience with Ajusa lifters reliability.
He even had them tested for proper hardness.
Still, we have agreed to replace them with a set of US made Opel lifters from his stash.
On the other hand, he hears only horror stories about BGA lifters from England.
My car seems to have always liked the 10w-40, it’s a good compromise.What weight are you using? and again why? I've always used Vavoline 20w-50 from the time I purchased my car. I read their PDF file on their website and also found this: https://www.dragzine.com/news/penn-grade-oil-blended-with-zinc-concentrates-from-brad-penn/ Thanks, Jarrell
Before you incur the cost of shipping them back to England, I might be interested in them as "spares". What might it cost to purchase and ship them to me in Calgary? Cheapest option on Canada Post (a clear oxymoron if there ever was!) would be fine. TIABGA lifters arrived from England packed in a plastic bag. Original box seems old and dirty, so it broke and the lifters were all over plastic bag. Some cartridges opened and the lifters were out. Three lifters weree packed in a different cartridges. I see no quality there and wouldn't dare to install them in my engine, so they are going back to the sender!
Couldn't wait till Friday, so this is my Wednesday rant.
Rude Canadians?They have their web page. Here are some fedbacks:
“The officer was extremely rude (female) unfortunately I didn’t catch her name. Unhelpful when I asked questions for further clarification for the future and she was very abrupt... however I do believe she was trying be intimidating.. for what reason, I don’t know.”
“Speak so rudely”
“There are some really terrible, rude, and unhelpful officers here”
“Dont expect any good customer service here”
“Items take forever to clear.”
“Bunch of goofs working here”
My Friday rant...
