Re: Woody Package (take 2)
eBay has it's ups and down. I saw a used Samurai/Weber carb adapter sell for $29 when they could have bought a brand new one from Pierce Manifolds for $26. Some people get eBay bid crazy and just have to have that high bid.
I generally only buy off eBay unless I need that part and I can get it for at least 20% less than what I would pay elsewhere. I bought my brand new, still in the box dual 40mm carbs on eBay for $620 and that was within my 20% limit. The cost was $749 from NCO/Calmini.
I also use a sniper program that enters my max bid within the last 10 seconds of the auction ending (Thanks JEEPN for the tip). I have never lost an auction since I started using that program. Just enter in your max bid and before anyone knows what happens you walk away with the high bid and the auction has ended. I recieved some nasty emails when I sniped an auction from under two people who were in a bidding war for almost a week. I responded, "Thanks for getting in a petty $5 bidding war all week and driving the bid up before I sniped it from under you two anyway!"
