    Parts wait times

    Holy shit... I know Im not the only one waiting on parts but this is getting ridiculous. I waited 9 months on a set of pistons, 11 months on an intake, and who knows how long Ill be before I get the main studs... I hate to cancel my order and not be able to find a set any quicker. At least this way I still have a place in line.

    Anyways, does anyone have a set of ARP main studs, PN 154-5607 for a 351 Dart Iron Eagle block???

    It's crazy. This issue was a driving factor in selling my coupe. I also have seen quality issues in the parts I was able to get.

    Quality has went to shit for sure! Once example is HO fibertrends hoods. In the past, I swore by these hoods. Ive got one that was pretty bad off and a few other buddy's have said they have also. Not sure what happened but its getting bad. Don't know if Ill buy any more or not. I guess it is still better than the Cincinnati hoods for a hundred bucks!

    Every time I call Jegs to see about my main studs, its always another story of how everyone is short staffed.

    I just find it hard to believe that covid or the economy is driving this parts shortage. I know everyone is hiring right now and it seems like a lot of people just don't want to work.

    Good luck Chad! I don't see an end in sight. Id really like to know how we went from 1.85 gas to 4.49...

    But the Biden administration and their minions the MS media were touting only 3.6% unemployment just last week. Funny how 3 years ago with low employment numbers we had an abundance. Yet today with a proclaimed low 3.6% unemployment we can't find any workers. Illegals are coming across the borders by the thousands but yet we have no one to work.

    You go from 1.85 to 4.49 by stopping pipeline building production, massively reducing oil production, stopping fracking and shutting down access of existing pipelines via executive orders everywhere you can. You then attempt to negotiate again with the middle east for oil while Russia is attempting to overthrow Ukraine. There are millions of barrels waiting to be produced already pumped out of the ground here locally in the US. They cannot get the product to the refineries because of the pipeline squeeze Biden executive orders have placed on the nations oil industry and pipeline systems.

    This is the movement involving the GREEN NEW DEAL whackos being kissed up to by Joe Biden's admin. The 3 key groups are known as Sunrise Movement, Justice Democrats, and New Consensus. Each are extreme radical leftist socialistic organizations.

    Exactly the issue! If people don't understand that, they wont understand anything. But hey, we might be getting a gas voucher that we will be taxed on multiple times over. Surely that will ease the pain!

    Don't forget shutting down coal fired power plants so we can use 'cleaner' natural gas. The company that bought Vectren announced NG prices will double this year. It's only going to get worse, tighten the noose on production by shutting down fracking and pipelines, then turn our power plants into mega consumers of NG. They call this less 'carbon footprint' BS, hydrocarbons are hydrocarbons. The steam coming out of a scrubbed coal power plant were just as clean as the NG ones. A fraud on the American people. Electric cars, lol, how will you afford to drive when you can't heat your home?

    It will get a lot worse in the next 2 years. Im not sure how the lower income people are even keeping their heads above water right now, let alone in the future. Its going to get bad.
