shipping an alt is not a fortune, more along the lines of $20 or so USD.
Are you really that poor?
I explained this already, to have it shipped to my CANADIAN postal code, costs $40 USD, through UPS.
Now, convert that to Canadian and it's about $53. UPS is the WORST place to ship with IMO, because that $53 only covers shipping to the border. once it cross the border more shippign charges apply, their "brokerage" fees.
so the alt arrives at my door, and I've paid $53 to have it shipped already, now the UPS guy politely asks for $40 in "COD" charges.
so please explain to me how you come up with $20 to ship it?

sorry if you think i'm being harsh, but I once bought a maf for $80 from a person here that many trust, and when i proved to him that the maf he sold me wasn't the maf he said it was, what I initially got from him was "oh, well now that I know its not what I said it was, I dont need it anymore, so i'll give you $35 back and you keep it"......your disclaimer seems to run along those lines to protect yourself from losing out all that much should it be not what it is claimed to be
All I'm trying to do is protect myself from someone who is going to whine about a 20-40 amp difference. I've explained that. I think I mentioned money returned if it's less than 200a output.
Like I said, if it turned out that bad, I would simply return the money, get the alt back, and return it to Iraggi, getting back the money I initially paid for it, plus the $40+$40 I had to pay to receive it from UPS twice.
It would work out better for me financially to return the money and then return the alt to Iraggi directly, should it prove to put out absolute crap numbers. so based on that alone, you could see how I would have more financial motivation NOT to rip someone off or stick them with a crap alternator, because I would get MORE money back by returning it outright, which I can't do unless it were to produce terrible numbers. However, 20-40 amps isn't really grounds for returning it, and it goes back to $379 being a decent price for a 200a alternator.
does anyone know where a 200a 3G can be had for $379?
