OEM Parts followed with "T"

#1

Post by panhead_kicker » Sat May 29, 2010 3:22 pm

I am looking at some OEM transmission gears and have run across some with the "T" on the end. They seem to be later made parts, not made in the States. ANyone have experience with these "T" parts? Would an earlier made part from the AMF years perform any better for twice the cost?

Any Genuine H-D part with a "T" following the Pt. # is manufactured in Tiawan. Supposedly, this was to keep the price down. You be the judge. Do you like using anything produced in Tiawan? Better a good used Genuine H-D part, than a Tiawan part. It's one thing to bolt on a part that can be changed in 10 or 15 minutes, but to use an inferior (in my opinion) part in a engine or tranny is asking for trouble (again my opinion)....bosheff

On the bag in the pic,-----It says Made in South Korea.
Any truth in the rumors that most Harley parts are now made overseas?

I'm sure they're trying to make as much as they can overseas.

I needed a starter selonoid for my Shovel and checked if a local dealer had one. They did, made in china, for about $51.00. I told them to forget about it. I looked at Accell because they advertise "Made in the USA", nope, theirs are made in china as well. I found one from All Balls that is made in Brazil, at least it's still America? Price was about $31.00.

As I have posted before:

I don't care if a part is made on the far side of the Moon as long as it is quality.

This is an OEM part. Made in the mid 90s South Korea. It would be made to HD specs. I will have to assume it will function as designed. I suppose its highly likely my 97 FLHP could be running on similiarily made parts.
Thanks for the opinions.

I got a new Accell solenoid the other day and the packaging clearly says made in USA. Does this only refer to the packaging itself?

Probably a left over one? When I talked to them a few weeks ago, they didn't have any that were still Made in the USA.
