Bbk getting cheap

Put on a bbk fuel gauge and they sent a cheap aluminum adapter.i should have know better than to use it but I did anyway.primmed the pump and saw it was leaking so I tried to tighten it and yes you know it broke.why does everyone go cheap.would a brass fitting with a gauge make them go broke?needless to say I'm disappointed.took off rail to fix it and it got kinked.nothing can just be simple.all this over a aluminum fitting.thanks a lot bbk

It's all about cost and not so much about quality.

Usually..... Cheap seems to sell, where quality cost more and it seem to me most people shop price rather than a quality product.
Just my $.02

^ yup. even worse lately is all the Chinese stuff flooding ebay claiming to be American products. So if the American cheap products suck, can't imagine the even cheaper knock off's!

Quality has gone to ****.everyone wants quantity before quality.i also put in bbk fuel pump and they didn't send gasket that would have been couple dollars so now I have to go to ford for the parts that will now cost me an arm and leg.this will be my last bbk aftermarket products
