I couldn't have said it better,Whynotthinkwhynot. In my earlier yrs., I'd go to the junk yards and pull parts for my cars only to be replacing them in days. I guess when the funds are running low one has to make ends meet to keep their junk running. FMC has to worry about warranting their parts and do not want to do the job a second time for their customers.That's why the quality standards for FMC parts have to be much higher. imo.
And no I'm not a service writer for Ford Motor Co.
