This is a prime example of why we all need to be careful when ordering parts online or otherwise. Example: If you need to purchase a carburetor for a B&S Vanguard engine & Amazon sells it for $29.99 it's more than likely a chinese knockoff. A new carburetor for a Vanguard engine American made will run over $200. I purchase most parts from Jacks Small Engines & Messicks in Pennsylvania. I try to use OEM parts all the time, made to fit, long lasting, American made most of the time, reliable, durable, cost more & will last longer.

On another note... NGK has, or will shortly be, discontinuing the production of non-resistor plugs. If you have an older engine that uses a plug without an R in the nomenclature, then you best go buy a box. Example... BRP7ES versus BP7ES.

Yes, and.... They have a law to mark the country of origin on the box the part comes in. Why in Heaven's name don't they have a law to mark the country of origin on the web site selling it ?
