Missing Kits

Post  chas12154 on Wed 21 Sep 2016, 8:30 am

Hi All, have any of you had problem with missing kits? i had, up to 3 months ago, had kits coming as they were numbered.
I have been waiting for kits 16A and 16B to come. I received Kit 17 last month. The last kit I have received was kit 19. I am missing 16A, 16B and 18.
I can't proceed any further with my build due to missing kits.
I have today, tried ringing Isabelle, but had no joy.
I have enjoyed my build, but now at a loss of things to get on with.
Has anyone has similar problems?

The kits don't appear to come in order they jump around
I have got almost a complete engine but no boiler to bolt anything to

Hi Mark, that must be rough! I have had my boiler. Till you get that, you are stuffed!!! Have you contacted STW and asked when your boiler is coming?

Hi,is everyone running into problems then at around kits 16a.?
I have a delay on my rear wheels aparently STW are waiting for the hubs to come in ,Dean has informed me that they are due October 12th but as of yet this hasn't caused me any problems as I have had plenty to get on with.
Hope that you get your problems resolved , keep us posted, I will be very interested to know the outcome.

John.

Hi All, I rang yesterday too and was told the same. They have had trouble with the splines on the crank and hopefully have it sorted soon and then they will be sent out to us.

That's correct today I binned 100 substandard crankshafts, so we now need to wait for some more castings.
sorry Guys
