Where is the best (fastest) online store to get OEM valve shim pads & timing chain for '06 450?

Also, does anyone have the thread dimensions for the flywheel puller such as internal or external thread, O.D. and pitch.
I want to go through my pullers and see if I might have one that will fit before I purchase a new one.

Thanks, Jason

ive had real fast response with Chaparral OEM parts.

TT has the best prices i think but they take a lil while last time i ordered OEM stuff.

so choose, speed vs. cost.

local dealer wont swap em out with you for free????? where in TX?

I doubt my local dealer even has any pads in house. I'm from the Orange, TX area.

Thanks, Jason

You placed your order 3/28/2009 7:21AM and it was processed the same day. For the items you ordered, the page clearly listed "usually ships in 3-10 business days". So, friday was the 4th business day and monday the 5th.

Here's one of your parts as listed online:
http://shop.thumpert...=93210-07135-00

Why 3-10 day range? We list approx. 8 million OEM parts and I'm sure most understand that we don't stock all of them. So, anything we don't have in stock gets orderd in from our OEM suppliers (and we have a pretty good stock too). If the part is coming from a supplier back east 1-2 for them to process it + shipping time to our shop.

Each order is competely unique, so one will ship in few days while some might take the 8, 9, 10 days. It just depends upon what is being ordered. We'll happily check stock in advance if you have a timeline we need to meet and we'll absolutely tell you if we can't help you.

Bottom-line, we're still well within the timeline we listed online and while we're happy to have your business, if you don't agree with the terms we list, don't click the order button. We do our best to manage expectations, but it's unfair to get upset when the time-line for shipping is listed before you checkout.

If you have any further questions, give us a call on Monday at 1.866.6.SHOP.TT or email us at shop@thumpertalk.com.

Again, we appreciate the business, but I just don't see what we could have done differently to avoid this. We'll never stock a dozen deep on over 8 million parts, so depending on the order, we have to order OEM parts in from wholesale suppliers.

Bryan
