When prices get high, dealers can make deals

That is the correct part number for the stator and rotor combo package.

I was quoted the LIST price 934.96 when I first asked the parts guy to get me a replacement STATOR. I balked, I told him I'd read on ADV the price was $810. After another phone call he was "able" to offer me the net price of 810. With a right cover gasket, $15.75, and 810, and 40.15 overnight shipping the whole deal was 931.75. Of course he failed to try and sell me the neccesary TDC locking screw.

Dealers are just that. they are in the business to sell stuff at the highest price the market will bear. That's capitilism, welcome to the US.
