Thanks Pau

I didn't see any big promotions here- go figure! Hopefully it will shake up the local retailers. There aren't many lehman parts available here that I know of ,so it could be hugely helpful - thanks again

I often mail products to Australia using Priority Mail International service. The items seem to arrive in about a week to ten days. It's very reliable. It's also less expensive than UPS, FedEx, or DHL. I think the weight limit is 30 pounds.


Will this make it somehow less expensive for my Australian customers?

That could be good news Pau. Only problem will be Australia Post`s "Ned Kelly Schedule of Rates"*. I`ve used USPS, found it competitive and reliable.*(Ned Kelly was a famous Australian bushranger/thief/stagecoach holdup man)
Bluevee, Lehman parts are readily available from helpful American Diesel, Lehman successors- Bob(VP of Lehman) and son Brian Smith. No problem sending to Australia either.

Thanks for the heads up Pete. It's always good to have another alternative for comparison.
I have used MyUSdotcom in the past with good results - among other things they have shipped me a 30 gallon water heater I bought online from Lowes

BTW the RF100 you sent me is working fine - with it my whole autopilot burst into life. Thanks.

I think the main advantage for us is that a lot of online retailers eg Amazon - won't send to customers without a US address
