with PK and chetan.

I own a conty and i try my best to keep it running, after all thats what i brought it for. if i get a genuine part manufactured by HM, i am lucky. If not, there is no other go but to settle down for available spares. Not that i compromise on quality. Also, i prefer to try and fix the non-working spare first, but here in our country many people dont have enough patience to do that. Also, they dont have a choice too. I mean, who can fabricate materials as close to genuine spares.. its hard to find such mechanics here...

Bit off-topic:
This is the situation we started facing off late, at least by around 1990s. Have seen some good old great workmen making the particular part and keeping the machine running. We had one such good old mechanic who used to work on my Dad's Enfield Sherpa / Ambassador / Agricultural water pump (British made Villiers, still running well). Remember once he had to fabricate some gearbox part of the sherpa with some lathe work. Lately things got changed, people started only to replace, not to repair at all. Back at home me and my dad try our best to repair anything to the maximum, then only replace the thing. So naturally many modern A. S. S. people don't like us, because we stay there until the work is finished, and argue for every nut replaced (sometimes find their mistakes too)!!

With thanks and regards

German spares are not affordable by me,thats a plain starking truth. But am i going in for cheap locally made spares.

I value my cars very dearly, and i can atleast afford Quality US spares that come to me from www.midamericamotorworks.com

I am not making a Concurs or a 100% ORIGINAL car, but my aim is to keep my cars working as any present day cars, but with "SUNDAR SASTAA AUR TIKAAAU SPARES" and i have achieved that with any cars i restore till date.

p.s: Have'nt i given you the exclusive and expensive Air-Box for your Fiat free of cost? was'nt that OE , do you ever get to buy such items locally made?

Hope you understood what i meant to say.
I had missed replying this post of yours, I agree with you and infact in my post I had mentioned the same, what you do is right in your way. It is your car and no one can dictate terms.

My comment was a general comment on German Parts and in any way not directed to you.

And I thank you for your generosity on giving me the elusive part when other's charge moon for it , infact also for helping us with addresses for the various services required.

No Manish,

I did not take it otherwise.

Sometimes when i come across some NOS spares, i dont think twice paying the price asked, since i know they are genuine.

Look at the below pics for instance, i paid a BOMB to pick these up

That's real cool stuff. Distributor on my car is also original, but my Ignition coil is not and I am hunting for that.

The Bosch distributor cap is German and will cost around USD35.
The BOSCH Distributor (assuming the yellow box is its packing) assembly is BRAZILIAN made and is not that expensive.
As per my info BOSCH plant in Brazil used to manufacture aircooled spares till early 2000
