    I have decided not to due business with my dealer anymore. I want to just go internet and mail order.

    Can anyone recomend a good online dealer, they must have a PHONE # and be able to take credit cards over the phone.

    Also I need both carburator mounting gaskets for a 9hp Honda.

    Thanks for any imput

    You have to set up as a dealer to purchase direct from Stens, Try J-Thomas.com they will sell direct.

    you will be so happy with the prices of j-thomas and now you dont have to listen to the dealer as he acts like hes doing you a favor getting you parts and screwin you for 3 tmes their actual price. If I have a decent dealer I dont mind paying for their knowledge and parts availability but the arrogant attitude and the screwin gets to me.

    The dealer I have been using has been in business 3 years, Im guessing Ive spent close to 2000 in those 3 years. So when he first opened his prices were lower than the feller I was using, and he would get most parts in 2 or 3 days. Now his prices are higher than then everyone. He has adapted an Im the only game in town screw you attitude, well I dont need it so I say screw him.

    Dealers are overrated. I thought I had a good one but, I was wrong. NOBODY cares as much for your business as you do. Use them for what you need and get the best price where you can.
