    Just for those that have a little hissy fit about where stuff is made.
    I had to replace the carb float in the Briggs and Stratton engine of my lawn mower today and look what is on the packet. Good American made engine, yes, but their spares are made in China. :fuckyou:

    When I went and got new bearings and races for the camper trailer , the bearing man pissed himself laughing when I gave him the old ones to match .. he said they are made in Australia so would be 30+ years old :lolsign:

    He reckons bearings are all made in Europe now .... the new ones were packed as a kit (for a FORD hub) and have no country of origin on the packet ... might be stamped on the actual bearing but Im not pulling them out to check :fuckyou:

    The Timkin hub grease I purchased at the same time is made in Thailand :cool:
