This thread is worthless without pictures of the offending item or the name of the vendor.

Sounds like another case of f--ked by the aftermarket. So often its hit or miss.

Of course you can have problems with OEM parts too. When I was rebuilding my engine, I upgraded to the newer style cam chain idler arms. One of them turned out to be defective. Simple little thing, but somehow the manufacturer managed to screw it up. Or how about rocker shaft cone nuts where the threads are not squared to the nut (which I discovered upon disassembly of my valve train)...look at this:
Current: 1983 911 GT4 Race Car / 1999 Spec Miata / 2000 MB SL500 / 1998 MB E300TD / 1998 BMW R1100RT / 2016 KTM Duke 690
Past: 2009 997 Turbo Cab / 1979 930
