it is not just any bolt and the kit will probably have a new O-ring with it too.

I found the bolt on the Internet, but I think I'm going to buy the kit with the bowl, seal and bolt.

I would defiantly buy it from a local dealer if I could, but 90% of them close at 5 and I wouldn't be able to make it in on time to get it.

Get it tomorrow, it will still be faster and cheaper than getting it shipped, unless, do you have 10 foot of snow blocking your driveway?

I understand I personally stay open for people when they ask though, so you might try to work out that kind of relationship with a dealer, it would be good for your business.

Yeah, I guess it wouldn't hurt to give them a call and see what they can do.

Simple solutions are always there for simple problems.

Solution - YOU don't have to be the one that picks up the part. Mom, Dad, Fiance, Friend?
