M.Maner- I'm sure that happens alot now that the US is losing its manufacturing to the international comunity. When I worked in QA a couple of lifetimes ago we had standards we had to meet for the people we were suppling part to,we had to pull test samples from production, check equipment calibration, the customers inspectors would come in and pull audits,and everything had to have a paper trail, back to the raw materials. I can imagine trying to keep tabs on a CG/QA program half way around the world on parts for thirty-plus year old cars. I guess the bottom line is do your research, ask questions and inspect anything your life depends on before you install it. That being said, my friend who untill recently co-owned the local NAPA told me if the NAPA catalog gives you a choice between a regular or premium part, to take the premium for the couple bucks more, most likely it's made on this continent and is of a higher quality standard, FWIW.
