I don't trust the listing it could be an Eco kit, which would be useless on my bus.

Yeah but that means no car and stuck out 1.5hrs away from work with no transport for over a week probably two lol. It takes the best part of a week or more for eBay parts to arrive.

I've also been stung on other eBay parts when they have failed within six months and they won't honour warranty unless I send parts back for testing along with invoice from garage for fitting said parts. I was a big user of eBay spares but not so much anymore. I do check prices and some things local supply is Repco so have to try online.

Yeah I use him occasionally, I saw those before but never heard of the brand. I did buy rocker cover gaskets from him but I think hey are starting to leak.
