Bad news?

LMAO!

I'm sorry Matt, but that just made me laugh...

You went through all that trouble and ended up where you started. Doesn't that just burn?

I'll bet that Intense could get the bearings out overnight to you and you could have them by 11:00am tomorrow, if you act fast. Just my opinion.

Yeah, and it would probably cost me 50 bucks in shipping <edit - $30>

I'm just as well off to have my brother in law swing by ZZP on his way out (he lives right by GR), as he'* coming over for the weekend anyway. <edit - 4.0 miles from ZZP>

Still 3 more people to hear back from (sent out a few extra emails earlier)... so we'll see.

It never ends... just heard back from the Eaton guy a second time, when I explained the time constraint:

Still waiting on a few other responses, otherwise, I enlist the brother in law.

It is extremely unlikely that you will find out who makes it and you won't be able to find it locally. We had to cross massive hurdles and promise to slit our wrists if we devulged trade secret information and if ZZP is selling the proper stuff then they did also.

I would just purchase it from your vendor of choice.

Yeah, that'* kind of what it'* looking like. I'm sure if I pushed, I could find someone here at work with the proper credentials to find out, but it'* not worth my time right now. In any event, I've got one more response I'm waiting for (in Australia) that might be able to help out. But it'* looking like I'm just going to have to put my car on hold for a few more days.

I hate it when the daily driver breaks. Never fun.

I know what it is and who makes it. But that knowledge won't do you any good. It'* far too expensive, and you won't find it in the small batches. Lead time will be far more than ZZP or INTENSE as well.

Out of respect to INTENSE and ZZP I won't divulge exactly what it is, either.

Where are you located? Most of lower MI is 1 day ground shipping from us.
