I got some quotes recently on e-gas mixers . . .

$325 new genuine ford
$675 secondhand from wrecker A
$165 secondhand from Wrecker B

Also be careful it's not off a million kilometre taxi with a worn butterfly shaft/bearing. I don't know if this kind of wear can happen, i just think it may be wise to be careful.

Both quotes were from 'reputable' wrecker C, who was sourcing from other wreckers unknown to me. They tell me wrecker B is reputable and would not buy taxi's as the parts off them are stuffed. What do you think? I think i will check the butterfly shaft and if it seems unhappy to me i will reject it. I'm not expert at assessing this, any suggestions? It's a loong drive so if it's stuffed i won't be happy.
