Nominations for improved cooling head gasket - 3rd round

by Harv » Wed Feb 13, 2019 7:25 am

Ladies and gents,

It seems that there is still some demand from people wanting the cylinder head gaskets, so I will do another round (I've had 250 made so far). Same deal as the last two times:

https://www.fxfjholden.com/forums/viewt ... =28&t=5882

Rough timing for the process:
a) I'll collect expressions of interest from these forum posts. I need at least 50 nominations to make a gasket run. Not sure how long it will take to get 50 nominations - please be patient.
b) Once we have 50 nominations, tor those who express an interest, you get a month to pony up the funds to me. First time round I only had two guys who didn't bother paying, last time round only one late payer.
c) I'll place the order, and AA Gaskets will let us know the timing.
d) When the gaskets arrive, I'll parcel them up in plywood (like last time) and send them to you. Note that it is cheaper if you combine postage with a few mates, or as a Club.

Cheers,
Harv (deputy apprentice gasket scraper).

Quick update. I now have nominations for 27 gaskets. Assuming I'm stupid enough to buy 10 (for the latecomers), I still need another 13 orders to meet the 50 units required for a production run.

Cheers,
Harv

Ladies and gents,

We now have enough gasket nominations to make an order. My aim is to place the order on Friday, 19th July.

If I have not received your nomination by then, you will have missed the boat.

I will finalise the pricing (should be very similar to the last two batches) and contact nominees shortly.

Cheers,
Harv

Ladies and gents,

AA Gaskets have confirmed that the gaskets are good for a bore which is 3 1/16” plus 60 thou oversize.

I have the following orders for gaskets:

FX/FJ forum
CarlFC (6 gaskets)
Richard Fox (4 gaskets)
Alfihar (5 gaskets)
Loz (2 gaskets)
Spanners (2 gaskets)
Vanmatt (2 gaskets)
Huss52 (2 gaskets)
FE/FC forum
PETEACTFE (2 gaskets)
FX1975 (6 gaskets)
KFV888 (3 gaskets)
Robbo (2 gaskets)
FC0058 (2 gaskets)
MalFE (2 gaskets)
ACE (4 gaskets)
Professor Grey (2 gaskets)
Rod (1 gasket)
Total 47 gaskets

Pricing will be as follows:
a) Gasket: $43 per gasket.
b) Packaging (7mm ply): $3 regardless of the number of gaskets ordered.
c) Postage: $25 regardless of the number of gaskets ordered.

So if you want one gasket, you owe me $71.
If you want two gaskets, you owe me $114.
If you want three gaskets, you owe me $157
If you want four gaskets, you owe me $200
If you want five gaskets, you owe me $243
If you want six gaskets, you owe me $286

I will send each of you a PM over the next day or so, including means to pay me. Payment is due by Wednesday 14th August (3 weeks from now). Once I receive the gaskets from AA Gaskets I will package them up, include the instruction sheets and mail them to you. Note that like the last two batches these gaskets do not come with warranty from either me or AA Gaskets.

Cheers,
Harv (deputy apprentice gasket scraper).

A quick update. The gaskets have been delivered to my place. I have received payment from everyone except CarlFC, and Robbo whose PayPal transfer has not come through yet. Plan is to get myself home this weekend, and start packaging up. Aiming to have them in the post for you next Wednesday or Thursday.

If there is anyone who still wants one, please let me know. I bought a few spares for the latecomers (there is always a few). I will sell off any unpaid gaskets at the end of the month to recover my costs.

Cheers,
Harv
