Good casting, poor machining.

The casting is solid, and the bolt holes, threads, and bearing opening are correct. However, the pocket for the shift fork rod to go into was not machined out, and so I had to pay a machine shop $25 to bore it out properly. Also, two of the reliefs in the bottom for the ears on the oil pump to seat into did not extend out toward the edge enough, and so the oil pump did not fit; I had to grind down the two ears on the pump body in order for it to fit. On top of that, if I were to nitpick, it was shipped in the bag covered in metal chips from being straight off the mill, which required an especially thorough cleaning, and seems the product was not quality inspected prior to shipment.
