#331417 - 22nd Jun 2009 6:15pm Camaro Build Stopped Dead !!

Loc: Wirral
Reason:
1. Balancer bolt too short.
2. Need manifold reducer.

And all because it's A/F and not metric.

Help needed...
Anyone know who can lathe a grade 8 bolt 7/16-20 thread and also a pipe fitting (manifold) with an external thread with an internal thread on the other end to accept original fitting.

I have the originals to work from....

Will obviously pay for work. And even let him have a drive of my car when done.

Thanks in advance guys.

Rob

Their is an really good engineering firm behind the Odeon for 1 off work, top job aswell.

They have changed their name in the past few years, they used to be Scotts Engineering.

here's the directions, maybe even you could get a back hander.

Plantation Road, Bromborough. On the road it is the 2nd left.

Update......
I found TSW Engineers Ltd on Plantation Road. Massive building... I thought they wont bother their time on a one off.........WRONG !
Although they couldn't make it for me (costs would be too much) the guy there called Steve took the parts I had and said he would research for me and find a supplier. Within a few hours he sourced North Wales Control in Deeside, and even gave me a part number.
Called North Wales and spoke to a guy who again was very helpful, (I was half expecting him to say "how many hundred do you want"), he searched his catalogue and put one on order for me (2.95)for next day delivery... Which I picked up today - and Woo Hoo - fits the manifold perfectly.

So the we have it, two people (no make that three people -cheers Philw for putting me on the right track) that took the time to help the "little guy" with a small item that was causing Big problems...

Who said customer service is dead!!!
