Charges are added to your order total and are based upon your method of payment. Visa, MasterCard, American Express & Discover: Shipping charges will be charged to your card account and are based upon the weight and dimensions of your parts.
If an item is out of stock at the time you place your order we will keep it on backorder and ship it to you as soon as it becomes available, unless you specify otherwise. All backordered items will incur actual freight charges when they ship regardless of how the order was originally placed (in person, through the mail, over the phone, fax or internet).
If your shipping destination is within the 48 contiguous states, please add shipping charges of 10% of the order total ($10 minimum) to your payment. If your order contains oversized parts (see Oversized Items here
), please add 10% of the order total ($10 minimum) plus the appropriate oversized item charge to your payment. If your shipping destination is outside these areas, or you wish to utilize a more expedient shipping method, please contact us for an estimate of the charges.
For the safest and most economical shipping method, specify a business address for us to ship to.
If you need your parts right away, we have a rush service available to customers in the US and many foreign countries. Rush orders must be placed by 11 AM Pacific time, and paid for by credit card. We will ship your rush order via the air service you select (see Shipping Methods here
Oversized items are those which exceed the normal size and/or weight limitations of our selected carriers and are therefore charged an additional fee to ship. Those items are noted throughout our catalog
and internet site using the “O/S” symbol. Charges for Oversize items will be applied to your credit card order total when your order is processed. If you choose to send us a check or money order, please add 10% of the order subtotal, ($10 minimum), plus $12 for each oversize item orders. This fee applies to all shipping method and carriers.
In addition to the oversize items (O/S), there are also some items that are charged an additional handling fee by our carriers. These items are noted throughout the catalog
and our internet site using the “A/H” symbol. The additional handling fee is $7.50. This will be charged to your credit card order at the time of processing. If you choose to send a check or money order, please add $7.50 for each item marked A/H.
Some items are too large to be shipped UPS and need to be shipped truck freight. These items are noted throughout our catalog
and internet site using the “T/F” symbol. Orders requiring truck freight shipping must be prepaid with a credit card or by sending us a check or money order. We cannot provide freight quotes on line. Your order will be sent to our shipping department for a freight quote and you will be contacted for your approval prior to sending the order. Please note that, according to the freight companies we utilize, if there is no one at the delivery address to assist the driver with unloading the freight, you will be charged a $50 fee in addition to the freight charges already incurred.

If you need to return a part to us for any reason, please call before shipping the part back to us. We will discuss the problem and issue a Return Merchandise Authorization number. Please place the RMA number on the outside of the box and include a copy of your receipt. No returns will be accepted without an RMA number. All returns must be shipped with the freight prepaid, properly packed and insured for the full value of the part. Returns sent to us COD will NOT be accepted. Unless the part is defective, or we shipped it to you in error, you will be responsible for all shipping charges incurred. You also may be subject to a 20% restocking fee. Returns made within 30 days of purchase will be refunded in the original payment form, provided part(s) is unopened and in sellable condition. Returns made after 30 days of purchase will be given store credit, unless item is defective. No returns accepted after 90 days.
The following items may not be returned for refund or credit: carburetor kits, books, literature, decals, video tapes, all electrical items, and all special order items. Should you receive a defective item, we will be happy to replace it. Some items will need to be sent to the manufacturer for warranty repair (i.e. radiators, stereos, power boosters, etc.).
Please inspect your package immediately upon receipt in the presence of the delivery person. Examine the box for any visible outside damage, as well as the parts inside for any hidden damage that may have occured during shipping. In the rare event that your package is damaged in transit, you must file a claim with the delivery company immediately, as most delivery companies have set time limits on damage claims notifications. Failure to do so may result in the loss of your claim. Do not send the package back to us. The delivery company will send a representative out to your location to examine the package and its contents so it is very important that you retain all packaging until the claim is settled.

If, upon receipt of your order, you determine that you have ordered the wrong part, or you decide that you no longer want the part you ordered, please call us immediately. We will be happy to exchange the item you ordered for the correct item or give you store credit if you notify us within 30 days of delivery. You will be responsible for all shipping charges incurred.
