Yes sir, if you click on the link in my first post I believe it's picture number four that has the original water pump bolted to the front cover. They do sell the pieces individually.

Why would you say that?
I asked my machinist about making one, even before H-max was selling their Kit, as he's done several of basically the same thing for the big V-8 Macks and he said $3500, and the cost of a hunk of alum large enough to make one and it was something like $1500 or so. They are not out of line at $3600.

If they are one off pieces probably. But if you buy the aluminum and you have youre CNC set up and you do a run of say 15 And you have that same CNC running off other parts which help pay for the CNC. I can think of many other parts around that size for other aplications that dont cost that much. I am baseing my statment off of that. If i am wrong so be it. It just seems the performance and aftermarket in some areas is way over inflated. When compared to stock parts and pricing. I am not going to give any exsamples cuz i do not want a argument. Just my .02.

Pull your head out before you speak. If you think it's so easy you'll have no problem building your own front cover,,,,, from design to built.
Well lets make some Dodads. One guy has an idea to make these dodads. Well he decides to press them out of steel so he goes and prices a press big enough to press dodads. I dont know about you but i have seen some pretty big presses. so lets price that at 2,000,000.00 just the press. He will probably need at least 3ft of concrete and a huge building to house it. so he probably has ruffly 3mil into just the tools to make this dodad. He sells this dodad at $200.00.

Guy #2 sees this dodad goes out buys a welder a and a plasma cutter hires a guy to do the welding and a nother to do the cutting and another to do the grinding gets material and works out of his garage. He may have $200.000.00 invested. but since his dodad is different but perfors the same fuction maybe a little better. He sells his for $1,000.00.

There is a lot more to it I know.

Who is generating more profit?

And if you dont think there is such a price jump compare some of RBP to some other stuff. But some how they are in business and people buy it.
