    I can't see 205, 504,306 or 407 on any of those lists so (maybe) I will be safe!

    I suppose there would be no problems with things being manufactured in some of these countries!!!

    A couple of years ago I was involved with some large butterfly valves (1600 dia.) manufactured in Turkey (If you only knew the project). They all had to be returned for remanufacture, what a load of S___!

    Also the only way we could accept another batch manufactured in China (after numerous unacceptable test results and their like) was to have German Inspectors witness their final hydrostatic tests.

    Sorry, I have just remembered what we called items manufactured in Japan during the mid 50's. Though it did only take the Japanese about 40 years to turn that right around.

    I think I have just purchased my last Pug!

    You will be lucky to find any new vehicle without Chinese made components on it.

    That's what globalization of the car industry results in!

    Japanese craftsmanship has always been astounding. It has been commented on for centuries. For a few years before and after the war some countries (like us) had a market for cheap mass manufactured stuff, which their factories were happy to provide - they liked the cash. A lot of first Russian sailors, and later other servicemen were very surprised about Japanese quality. If only they had realised that the expensive fine porcelain and metalware trades to the west were indicative of a wider national attitude in a fully industrialised country.

    Now the Chinese are flooding us with shoddy stuff, but they are quite capable of outstanding quality too. The problem for us is to discern it.

    [QUOTE=PugMonkey;1276322]1600 butterflies..... That's one mean set of throttle bodies!

    1600 dia. is a tiddler, Copeton Dam has a 2748 dia. Butterfly!

    You should hear these things scream and rumble during an emergency closure test with a full head on the storage.
    Come to think of it, I don't know if the valves or the people carrying out the tests screamed the loudest.

    4 of the above would make for a great induction noise (Though think of the fuel bill).

    Now you guys know why O.E. Solenoids don't work well on AL4 Automatics, get any electro valve made before 2000 and it will have no trouble. After that date production moved to Southern China.

    Interesting situation?
    Poorly made British stuff could always be repaired .
    Chinese stuff is just scrap!

    The biggest problem with stuff coming out of china is ensuring that the Materials are up to scratch. Not uncommon for substitutions to be made, so much greed and corruption. Look at the melamine in the babies milk powder scandal. If people are willing to do that to make more money for themselves, are they really going to care about some car parts being not up to scratch.

    Companies that have rigorous QC generally can get good products made in China. However the problem as I see it is that corporations these days just want something that they can sell, that will outlast the warranty period, and they want it as cheaply as possible (so that they can maximise margins). This is at odds with producing a quality product. Quality is not a selling point.

    What amazes me is that we as a scociety accept it!!

    Would you believe that just after I posted that I went downstairs to make a cup of tea and when I hit the switch on the kettle it just moved down, and didn't switch on.

    It's a kenwood K-Mix Something the missus liked the look of. Certainly not a cheap kettle (I think it was $120 RRP) the plastic that holds the switch in place is thin and obviously a stress point. How old is it I hear you ask? We bought it in June 2013 (just found the receipt). 2 months out of warranty and it has broken. I'm not sure where it was manufactured, but things like this are not going to be country of origin dependent.

    I think you'll find your Kenwood is now made in the Middle Kingdom by the cheapest contractor. Their reputation isn't what it was.

    I'm still using an el cheapo supermarket no-name jug that's now about 24 years old. I thought that if it had to be Chinese I wasn't spending much, but it turned out to be exceptional. Mind it has no switches, sight glasses, or other frills, just an element in a plastic container.
