Got mine today. Granted, it was probably a 15 mile trip They will likely be sitting on a shelf for a while, as my born-again-student budget is very tight right now.

Would like to put in for a Oil pump gear.

Just had my 1.6 develop rod-knock. Need to source new engine and build up the current one. On the list are billet gears, and marc's h-rods.

Yea I had to change a couple of things from the files you sent out. There was a couple of features not there, and we CMM'd another gear and averaged the two, so we were sure to be in good range.

MX Eva you can goto the website Boundary Engineering and order them, there will be probably a 2 week delay or so until the next set goes out though. The machine shop has to cut up some more.

Got them in today to. Now to get a nice picture frame so I can hang them on my wall. Kinda scrapped doing an engine rebuild this winter. They sure are sexy though.

That's some consistancy from the post office: mine came in today as well. The envelope had some oil on it, which worried me, but the gears were bagged so no worried about them getting wet and swelling.

I've got two oil pumps to choose from, so I guess I'll be seeing where they fit in better and dropping them there. Can't wait!

I believe mine was too. I am not sure if it was on the inner or outer though (gash in the gear).

Post pictures and I can tell you what is acceptable or not. These gears must have been subject to massive loads in shipping if they are really damaged. Most edge damage will do nothing to change pump efficiency, you would have to have a huge gouge to see any change in performance. I'm in between meetings now, I'll get back to you guys later.
