I received the product in a timely manner via FedEx and shipping was free. The thing that stuck out was the word "China" on the underside of the part. I worked several years in an aluminum diecast manufacturer and I remember parts that had been given contracts in China returning to the US because the quality was not there. I throughly inspected the part looking for weaknesses and imperfections. All the machined surfaces were smooth without any pitting. The exterior looked solid. Inside the part I noticed areas that had slight poor - fill in the die casting process. It all looked superfical. The exterior did have extra flash that I did have to file off some of it was near the machined surfaces which was disconcerting as I filed I was afraid of damaging the machined surfaces.
Shipped in a reasonable time for free.
Was not upto my personal standards and expectations.
I installed the part because I could not find just cause to ask for a replacement
