Re: Parts do not work from OPGI
Opgi makes many of the parts that are sold by other vendors too. I've had my issues with them too but in some categories, your choice is to buy an inferior repro or refurbish an old part. Anyone that thinks these repro parts are as engineered and built by GM (and its vendors) is doomed to be disappointed.
I would also say that years ago people were more happy to have something than nothing. Things have changed where I think that the repro parts are improving. You just need to do your homework. It would be good if there was a good database of known bad parts versus vendors because so many parts are single source.
