    Default Ford T9 parts sources

    I recently found myself in need of an input shaft bearing for my T9 transmission. The search took about 6 hours over two days. Because of timing, I ended up ordering it from Burton in the UK with express shipping but I did end up finding some in the US. Apparently, an outfit in Oregon, Rapido Group (541-544-3322) seems to have acquired much of the NOS stock of Mercury Mercur parts in the US including many T9 parts. BAT Industries also has some parts but they didn't have the bearing I needed. Pretty brusque on the phone as well. The fellows at Burton were great as usual plus the exchange rate is pretty good right now thanks to Boris. Shipped express on Thursday, I should have it Saturday!

    Ha, the GBP tanked long before Boris came in! When he celebrates the union between the UK & US, he's actually talking about the road to parity between USD & GBP :-)

    Do you know of anywhere to source complete T9 cores in the US, please? Looking to put together a T9 based on the Tracsport semi-helical gearset and am wondering if there's a way of avoiding shipping it over from the UK. Though the exchange rate and VAT saving should soften the blow.

    John Esposito at Quantum is the only guy I know. He is a bit hard to get hold of. Try him first thing in the morning East Coast Time. I heard that there may be some in Canada but I don't know anyone specific.

    You could wait - I am betting the Pound will go par with the dollar later this year.

    Here are some other options to try:

    VPD may have something available although they normally build to order
