Hello Steve,

I know this chap he lives locally to me and have traded with him before. My dealings to date have always been positive, both service and items.

If you want me to phone him on your behalf (I presume you are in NZ) to save phone cost, please drop me an email with the points you wish raising.

He does not do emails that much, with 99% of enquiries dealt with via the telephone.

Regards.

Hello Steve,

I spoke with Mark (Mev Spares) and he says that the piston set was despatched on the 23rd October; he has at the moment misplaced the tracking number but is going to search again and if found will email you the number.

Hopefully we are all speaking the same order here !!

Of interest, I sent a letter to NZ early October and took nearly 3x weeks to arrive - the postal service from UK to NZ is not great by all accounts.

Mark added that if there is any issue not receiving the item he will send another set accordingly.

Hopefully the above is of assistance ??

Best wishes.

yes , thanks for following up on that for me.
The order referred to is for Gregg Gordon ( i put him onto that site) The next week i needed a set myself so made the enquiry but as Gregg had not received his, was reluctant to go ahead with my own order . no reply to two emails and one ph. call. I'll try again tonite 10 am your time.
regards

Hello Steve,

Ah right, that is why Mark was a bit confused to start with when I mentioned your name - I was unaware there was a third party: Gregg Gordon.

Mark says he is at his desk with the phone from 8pm to 10pm UK time, as such it might be better for you to phone in the morning NZ time.

On a separate matter, a friend in NZ emailed me a copy of the Dart Talk (432 - Oct / Nov 2019) and must say it is a very good publication and interesting; if my deduction is correct, I believe you are the "Techno Whizz" as indicated within the publication.

Best wishes and good luck.
