Default Parts arriving from Rockauto...

Got three of the four cartons of parts today. Sadly the radiator box has a nice forklift gash in the box and sure enough the core has at least two cross tube fin smashed spots. Had to request a replacement.
My first experience will them and I was impressed by their shipping time. And packaging from their warehouse. The radiator box was fairly heavy but there was no protection for the core except the box itself, not even a piece of cardboard. But this was from the rad company warehouse dropshipped to me.
So I can begin dismantling my 07 Pacific Coast to install the timing belt, water pump, cam and crank seals, idler and tensioner. That along with drive belts and water hoses should do it and get Penelope Cruiser back on the road!
Wish me luck!

Me too. Timing belt kit w/pump, v-belts, camshaft and crankshaft seals, center motor mount and an entire week with my wife out of town which results in a spare drive-able car

Guess what I'm attempting to tackle this weekend?

Good luck on that job. Very time consuming. Plenty of info in numerous threads here to help you with any problems that may arise.

Hope you have a couple of six packs for after you're done...you know, for stress relief and celebration purposes.

unfortunate stuff happens during shipping sometimes... fortunately RockAuto is very good with replacing damaged parts! I have experience with this and they were great!
hopefully a new radiator is on it's way quickly and arrives in good condition.

If you answered “yes” then parts car is a really good idea.

I just received another big box of Rock Auto goodies too. I have another order of 'Closeout' deal stuff coming too. It's surprising how many Turbo PT stuff there are that have been put into the non-turbo closeout page instead of being listed on the turbo closeout page.

Mine arrived late in the evening Wednesday. A-hole FED-X driver didn't even knock on the door or ring the doorbell. I was waiting on him. The tracking shows that he left the box on the porch at 5:51 p.m. I looked out on the porch at 6:15 and found them. Put the belts on after dinner and the lower torque strut (engine mount) I didn't get it measured right, so this morning took care of that. What a pain in the neck. 119mm. Seriously? I thought we lived in the USA.
