Tried calling him several times last week during the day, and I tried again today. Generic voice message rings twice and then goes to voicemail. I left a message last week but haven't heard back.

They are but are hard to get on the phone. The owner has health issues but still has a crew working the shop. If you want to pm me a number I can stop by their shop this week to relay the message.

One should also account for the holiday season. That can delay a lot of things.

True but now it's also going on three week of trying to reach them. Phone rings twice and goes to voicemail. No call back after leaving voicemail. Doesn't seem like the best business practice

Sbaugz,
The owner suffers from Lou Gehrig's disease so it has affected his business practices as it would affect any of us. He still has a guy running the shop but it's not an operation where someon is there all the time. I purchased a g8 the other day and I know they have a few for the 500. Went by there today but it was during lunch, will check again tomorrow.

Sbaugz,

appreciate it. Did not know about his health problems, which is unfortunate.
If you get ahold of him, tell him I need a G8 and I would be happy to give him my stock G47 core in exchange if that would drop my price. I had thought about having the G47 rebuilt but I was going to go with a rae-san anyway. I am not sure my advance pulsers even work- i did a stator check and I didn't get any continuity at the pulsers. I figure the easiest way to solve this is to eliminate them, swap to a G8 and get the rae-san. But, I digress.

in regards to custom rewind- I don't necessarily even need to talk with them. If he wants me to simply mail the old G47 with my contact info and address, I can do that.
Thanks again!

He needs them Murray, I didn't have my core the other day and he begged me to bring it to him when I get the chance. I'll be taking it this week and relaying sbaugs need. I can let him know that you can send some spares if you would like. I can pass your contact info alone if you would like as well.

OK thanks alot. I swear I read on this forum that people were paying $90 for a G8 stator with core. Did you mention I needed a G8., rather than a G47?

sbaugz,

I paid $140 for a G8 stator with core last august, so that sounds like the right price. I asked for the G47 price and he said it was significantly higher (didn't say exactly). The stator you get back is top notch though. Worth every penny in my opinion. Good luck.

He is probably not familiar with Rae-san but he is familiar with the ignitech system and has stators that are specifically built and labeled for use with the ignitech system. If Rae-san requires the same stator as ignitech then I would tell him you need a g8 stator to run with ignitech to keep down on confusion. And yes I would include year, make, model, etc. Feel free to call him as well. I would hate to catch blame for something going wrong with your purchase, I'm just trying to help bridge the communication gap.
