Default Eddie Marine rocks....CP performance????

I ran into a couple problems last week as we are getting close to finishing my engines at Wesco. I bought cam driven water pumps from a memeber here on the board to clean up the install well to make a long story short I had Gen 4 timing covers and my blocks are 5's. So Dave is ready to button things up and the covers are wrong totally my fault....so I call CP performance to get covers ordered and next day aired to me. I call first thing Monday am.....they dont have any out of stock..... so I get on the net and look up Hardin Marine the manufacturer....Call them Tuesday am they dont have any....so I ask the guy what the lead time is? He tells me that there is no purchase order in for the parts...what the heck dont you make them? Come to find out CP and Hardin are one and the same and neither one can help me the oder guy says he will try and find me some...hey man the clock is ticking on my Michigan summer and my engines are in a holding pattern Just becouse I look on Eddie Marines site and they show the Gen 4 covers so I call them and ask do you stock the gen 5's also? The sales guy tells me to hang on he goes out in the warehouse and finds the parts yep I have two sets can you get them to me over night ? Sure!!!!! 16 hrs later the parts are at Wesco and my project is moving forward again!!!Thanks a bunch EMI you guys no how to take care of the customer.......CP....what a joke...

Dyno thats old news about CP and Hardin. When they ck inventory there cking both at the same time .Most of these people don't make there own products.

Eddie's does make a lot of his stuff and most of the time has it in stock. I have noticed he doesn't advertise that much any more either.

Once I bought a item from Rex and it came in with Eddies packaging . I guess if they don't have it they get it from another.In my biz I have borrowed product form another biz to satisfy a customer

Keep us informed about your motors and good luck.

Rob

Dyno, I ran into that problem last year. I ordered 2 timing covers and they never showed. After a few weeks the machine shop guys called CP and they were told the covers were out of stock and they didn't know when they would be getting more. I put the stock sheet metal covers back on. I wonder if they've been out of stock all this time.
