I hate when people pass off aftermarket stuff as factory NOS.

This auction is currently on eBay

Now the guy does have a very high 100% rating so I figured he saw a
picture of an Amphi with these and figured they were NOS. I thus sent
him a note pointing out that they are not, that they are an
aftermarket substitute that will apparently work but are not NOS.

Today I see he updated his shipping info but no mention of the fact
that these indeed may not be NOS parts.

Buyer beware. No point paying top $$$ for something you can get in
the JC Whitney catalog.
