E320/E250 Bluetec Ford F350 6.7l
I am still using Chinese automotive wrenches that I bought 36 years ago. But I bought them in Poland, where communist government (at the time) was ordering Chrome-vanadium steel tools from China. US supplier had 3 criteria for ordering from ChinaBTW, I’m not saying that all Chinese parts are garbage. OEM’s with Chinese manufacturing plants try diligently to maintain high QC standards, but with varying degrees of success. Either way, I am hoping that whatever lands on my doorstep next week is an actual, made in Japan, genuine Denso unit, and not one of these: Chinese Garbage Denso Knockoff Compressor
So when in last few years I bought 100's of stuff directly from China, I don't buy what US middle man can offer.
