lol yea, I was supply po for a little while, dunno if you know what a gate valve is but we spent $33,000 for a 10" Gate valve that goes in a main steam piping. The military spends crazy money on even the smallest of things. Its all about contracts oh and about 10k for an internal shaft for a sliding shoe pump.

I would assume they would go out for BID, If the dollar amount was to exceed XX. But who am I. If y'all weren't doing what your doing. I probably would not be able to be sitting at home, Enjoying my family.

Keep it up, And thanks for your service.

P.S- 10K is alot of coin for a reman stock Non-turbo

just wanted to give a lil update on this engine we got it out droped in the new one, i had an apointment the next day so iwasnt able to help hook everything up, long story short i went out to do a QAQC,(inspection i guess you could say) well by odd chance the air vent line had a clear tube on it an i happened to notice liqued, yep sure enough fuel was in it, partys unknown hooked the fuel return line to the air vent lines, needless to say the hubs the transmission the transfer an even the air filter were filled with fuel, but we caught it in time to correct it had all the fluids changed out in about an hour, i hate to imagine all the work that woulda had to be done if they had rolled out in that condition
