Default Who has a failed UIM lying around?

Guys, I need a few cores so I can have some sleeved uppers in stock when I get urgent e-mails like I did yesterday.

Anybody got a failed upper lying around they're willing to ship? I'll be happy to pay postage.

thanks!

CSFiend and Nimrodtoo, you each have PMs.

And thanks, Bill, good luck tonight. Your manifold should have been delivered by now.

Keep 'em coming, guys!

Question: Would any of you buy a repaired manifold on e-bay? Been thinking about that.

I wouldn't be because I'll go straight to the source!

However, I think there'* a great market for it. The L36 is used is several different vehicles other than just the Bonneville.

I have a feeling that people are going to be skeptical unless they KNOW who you are, the work you've done, and what EXACTLY this fix takes care of. You may have a hard time selling to anybody but us...but I've been proven wrong before. Try it, see what happens.

Bob.. if I have time..I might nab you a couple from the yard. if..that is.

If I needed one and you put them up on ebay..put testimonials and a link here... Clearly ... that would be a good confidence booster espeically when they browse and see all the knowledge.

Going to take the advise of ppl here and check mine out and see if it has been changed, if not I may go ahead and swap it out just to be pro-active, if I do I will check with you and see if you are still looking for old ones.

As for Ebay, a lady here in Washington just sold a hot dog from the Seahawks division championship game for something like $7,000. Any thing will sell on Ebay lol
