The gas spent... the electricity spent on the computer... the time wasted... just buy the whole damn kit and replace the entire thing it is bound to go bad before long.

A piston stop is gonna be mailed as a poster will send me one via mail .


I have a really hard time wondering why American stores[lowe's home depot ACE] cannot have small parts of a unit for sale as opposed to buying a whole unit.

Like for example parts of cars are for sale [belts for instance]. So going out and buying a new/used engine is the all time stupid move when you can just get a new belt.

so here is along the same line [smaller yes] - gettin g a piston stop rather than the $13 dollar unit.


I've tried bending the stop to add friction and be done with it but the piston stop is very very tuff - if you applied enuff force to bend you may as well mess up the rod therefore whole unit is messed up.

Better yet when getting the kit in the first place the manafactor oughta throw in a pair of extra piston stops

If they do have it [lowe's for example] as only the piston stop then the staff working there are not very good - I looked and asked for it.

the part itself is not located online on their site either.

A shame really

LMAO - AMAZING!!!

You be sure and reimburse that nice guy here for his postage and fuel and his time to take your package to the post office. Hell you might even throw in an extra nickle for the "piston stop" he sent you.

JUST AMAZING!!!
