Engine Parts from Mexico

Post by Jdt1976 » Thu Mar 08, 2018 9:14 pm

Lately I was looking for engine parts and see a lot of NOS parts that I suspect would be from Mexico or Brazil?

Does anyone know what the quality would be like?

I have never had any problems in fact I thought they where of a good quality.They have been making parts from the 50s so they have been around a while.
My 2 cents worth.

Most of my parts come from Brazil, they tell you what the quality options are on their web site.

Thanks Terry and Herman.

I did place an order today. Hope the quality it good.

These heads I received yesterday. I bought them from France. I suspect the seller in France bought them from the guy in Spain I ordered from yesterday.

On the label it says Made in Germany. But on the heads it is casted Mexico.
Wonder why that is?

The Mexico 043 dual port version of your heads, has long been the head of choice for many professional performance head builders in the States. They are known as the best OEM dual port heads available, due to their superior casting metallurgy. Metallurgy, I suspect will be shared by your heads.

I think you have done well to find these heads.
