Default Spare Parts

Hi Ron - you keep coming up trumps. I don't suppose you have a spare Carrier differential? Guy popped up tonight looking for one.

Or anyone for that matter.

Bob

Default Carrier parts

Hi Richard,
Yes it was quite a nice little haul, I might add it took me over 30 years since I got the location to finally get the bits and pieces and the 2 carriers, I am on the track of annother couple, just hope that it wont take quite so long to get them, I reckon that I might be running a bit short on time,
Your carrier is looking great Regards Ron
