Bruce. Is that Bruce(OR) Bruce(VA) or Bruce in Cnada?
I suspect it's Bruce(OR).
If not, please pardon my interruption.
I redid a Fergy engine a few years ago and started looking at country of origin for the replacement parts. China at the bottom of the list.

I remember being stuck in Korea a few years back and going on a factory tour of various businesses. I was impressed with the fishing rod supplier.
Cafeteria tables set up two rows wide and the number of manufacturers all in one building.
Zebco, Garcia, EagleClaw, the list goes on.

China is China. It gets boxed ether in a green box or a red one.

Back in the states, I picked up a fishing rod and looked at it. "Made in Korea"
Yep. I knew where and how also.
You think China is different, right?

Some people rant about a particular supplier. Let the country of origin do the rant. Do your research and let your research guide you. Your machine shop ~might~ have an idea. Unless they will allow you to supply your own parts.
I recent had a Ford 881 diesel engine redone and the machinist politely said "Bring your own parts."
Yeah, you were looking for a fast answer and no such luck.
