I appreciate the advice. I'm one of those people who likes to get new parts, if I can afford it.

Well, I made my comments based on a one time experience two years ago at the parts warehouse and it could have been a fluke since I saw both next to each other. Dorman was packaged in a nice box and the Motormite in just a plain box. The Dorman had evrything necessary for the swap and the Motormite did not.

That could be the diffrence in the $10-15 between the 2 of them... The dorman does come with all of the applicable parts, and being that Advance carried them I do reccomend the Dorman just to simplify everyones life... I will say the Dorman is a good product and does come with all new gaskets, as well as the assoiated parts

Thank jr's3800. He spent hours of his own time accumulating data and combining information from several different sources into something that works for us.

Okay, thank you jr's3800. Your post was very helpful. Especially for someone like myself, who likes to get as much information as possible before starting a job.

Thanks again,
Leif
