Sadly the independent mptor spares shops are in decline. A few months back I was searching for a diaphram for a fuel filter head and the only one complete unit available was second hand from a scrappie - he wanted 50 and even then there was no guarantee it was any good.
I went to a small family owned motor factors and explained my plight - Charlie one of the sons said we haven't time to hunt but you are free to have a look for yourself. He directed me to an old shed out the back which was piled high with older stock and after a few minutes I found exactly what I needed. How much is that I asked - he said "give me a fiver". I only had a tenner and he said I'll tell you what - we'll put the tenner in the Cancer Research charity box on the counter and we'll call it quits. So I was happy - he was happy and a charity we both supported got 10. Now thats what I call service
