Genuine Parts

Guys, I need a no-bullshit source for Genuine Parts. I buy from EE when it's something they stock but for other stuff I have to go to Rovers North or AB. I used to have good luck with RN and AB but lately, it's a crapshoot whether or not they'll ship me the real deal Genuine stuff.

My fuel sender is flaking out and the fuel gauge isn't reading accurately. The needle is reliable below 1/2 full but won't ever go above that. This makes me think that it's a mechanical problem with the sender, probably because my truck sat around for a month while I was in NC. I ran some BG44 through it to no avail. I think it's the shitty Britpart fuel pump that I swapped in a couple of years ago.

Dropping the tank on the 90 is such a colossal pain in the ass so I want to swap this POS fuel pump for Genuine but I can't find one. I want the genuine shitty Lucas stuff. I used to call George but he seems to have stopped stocking NAS parts. Where can I go?

(no, I don't want to buy used parts)

Can you get on the phone with a tech guy at RN or AB and get them to check the origin of the part?

I've done that, only to receive Britpart substitutions. I guess most people don't care whether they use Genuine and consequently, most vendors don't care, either.

Will Tillery sells new genuine parts for about a 1/3rd of what AB or RN sells them for.

I saw this thread awhile ago but didnít think much of it until I had the same thing happen. Placed an order for a genuine bottom hose and this crap shows up. No call or e-mail to say hey we donít have the genuine part. They just ship this crap to me.

Hi folks, new to the board...but I've been wondering, does anyone know when Will Tillery's website is coming back online?

I have no idea on the site. I just call or send him a p.m. on discoweb, pay via PayPal and get the parts in a few days.
