Junk Yards - October 8, 2013, 02:53 PM

Has anyone had any success at Crazy Ray's on car parts under 10 years old? Any other junk yards that have someone at the front desk that has an ounce of phone skill? Brandywine has always failed me, including this time.

Looking for something that should be a quick pull (right on top of the motor, palm size) off of a 2.3L duratec engine, a commonly used 4 banger found in a lot of Ford's, Mazda's, and other stakeholder clones from the 03-~10 period, to shut up some emissions subsystem.

Tried. No go. It's some kind of vacuum solenoid that cost a pretty penny for what it is new...

And I need 2.

Dumfries. Damn. That's a ways from me....

You need to understand, Brandywine, the counter workers only care about major components and core parts.

If you call them about the small witchy thingy that controls the whosawhatzit, they're not going to help you.

I go to Brandywine with my tool box. I tell the one of the greasy counter workers I'm going to look for a part that they probably would never inventory.

They give me the nod and I'm off into the lot. Bring water and a mat to lay on broken glass and oil.

Go forth with your quest, my son.



“Any man who tries to be good all the time is bound to come to ruin among the great number who are not good. Hence a Prince who wants to keep his authority must learn how not to be good, and use that knowledge, or refrain from using it, as necessity requires”.

I live minutes away from the Jessup CrazyRays and go there often. As you mentioned, anything newer than 10 years old is mostly a crap shoot, but occasionally some show up. You just have to be quick because people strip them FAST!!

As for your Ford, that shouldn't be too much of a problem finding. Fords tends to fill up quick, older ones and slightly newer ones.

BTW, CrazyRays has 4 locations now. If you dont' mind driving and paying some tolls, it's worth checking them out.
