    What do ya think Shep? $20 bucks, collar is a little lose and I will have to punch my own holes (I think the OEM was the same).

    Still waiting to hear if Trail Tech will sell me their unit separately.

    Can you tell if it's a rubberized plastic, or real rubber? The listing made it sound like it was a real rubber part, but the pics makes me think it's just a pour mold clone of the OEM, aka exactly what Shep would be able to make =). What's the width, depth, and height of the D style one? I contacted the seller about reproducing other models but got no reply.

    Send me which ever you’d like an exact copy of...or both, on one with small holes it’d be a single pour but the mold halves would have protruding shafts (holes) from both sides. You’d just have to punch through a thin layer membrane when you get them(if that makes sense) both parts look pretty simple to do, kinda
    The rubber I’ve been using is really firm but is a perfect match for grommets.
    I’m always looking for hobby work on cold winter nights.
    Santa bought me gift cards to an assortment of rubber/plastic sources that I’ve been waiting to use anyway.

    I’ll pm you my address tomorrow if you decide to send them just give me a heads up so I can be on the lookout for them.
    Your price would be a couple beers if our paths ever cross...

    Shep

    Ps. An oem one would be best to copy if in good shape.

    I'll order another one for you and try to send a lower OEM section. There is room for improvement that I'll pass on with the parts.

    Thanks!

    Real number is $6437.90 assuming the prices never changed. You still have to take out shipping, ebay and paypal fees (about 15%), cost of materials, taxes etc. They probably profit something like $2-3 each.


    I have a listing with big numbers too, but it's a 4 year old listing lol. It is my best selling ebay product though. Not trying to brag or anything, just keeping it real. Also the price has increased a fair bit over time.

    Shep, your parts are in my mailbox. I’ll include a roached OEM for your viewing pleasure when I get back up to the States. PS2, I found some supposedly OEM quality sheathing and I don’t care enough about matching wire colors to bother you, so I’m good for now, thanks.

    Just need to install the new pulse generator or whatever it’s called and I can finish it up and refurbish the rest of them.

    No prob on my end =).

    Hope that wire has a good temp rating, that's why I originally bought the fiber braided wire, 200c rating. My "normal" harness wiring is 125c rated, higher end PVC wire seems to be 105c rated and the cheapest wire around is something like 60-80c rated. Not sure what kind of temps you'd expect at the stator, but I'd guess around 80c or so with a heat soaked engine.

    EL- I’ll be watching the mail for it. I ordered more rubber mix yesterday actually/ it’ll probably get here mid-week.

    Ps2- I’ve got a goodie bag of plastic/rubber things mostly fails due to air pockets or no UV additive added to mix. I’ll try to get it in mail tomorrow - I’ll send a key dash too but a failed one, (no UV)
    I think you’ll be amazed at the strength of the rubber.

    Yea defo interested in how they turn out. John made me some 350x headlight socket rubber boots, they were strong but really stuff. Guessing it might have been like a 70 or 80 rated mix instead of like a 50-60ish (can't remember the rating name off the top of my head).

    That’s exactly what I said when I put one on the faucet and filled it up to the size of a medicine ball :

    First ones fresh out of the mold, still a lil bit soft, but nice. Still have a couple days on the larger part but that mold has been started.
