I bought many kits from him and even a rebuilt carb when I first started fixing these tractors and some of the stuff is not right, for example his L80 carb kits have the incorrect bushing sizes for the throttle plate shaft.
You may be right, another issue I had was with the reproduction bronze bushings for the right hub, I had bought one set and they were so tight I struggled to get the drive collar fitted back inside, I managed to do it only by getting the hub back on the wheel first in order to have extra leverage to twist the hub back on. I drove my tractor around the yard for months with no free wheel pin after that . :wallbanging:I dont like knocking anyone but tubeframes does seem to have a "Its Close enough" motto on the parts , I think what hurts them is they are also trying to sell as cheap as possible which doesnt always work out well IMO.
I used to carry those kits because they were cheap but had way too many issues with them so I only carry Genuine parts now for them.
