opinions on aftermarket vs namebrand

Recommended Posts

i usely just buy the cheapest water impeller that i can find as long as it has the metal sleeve and not plastic. i usely change them every 3 yrs and have never lost a waterpump unless it was my fault.

i had to put a solenoid on my old 115 hp inline 6 merc. as it was electrical i decided to go with name brand. i could have gotten a aftermarket for about 14.00 and free shipping. the name brand was alittle over 30.00 with shipping. when i got it installed, i just got to thinking, and went back out and checked it. and sure enough it was made in mexico.

so i would just like to get some of your opinions on using aftermarket.

I have used some after market Mercruiser parts with good results. Sierra is one aftermarket brands that I like. Actually the aftermarket stuff helps keep the name brand prices in line.

At times, name brand and "after market" are really one and the same-just packaged and targeted to a different niche in the market place.

I have used both I normally buy most of my stuff off IBOAT.COM they have just about everything I'm looking for and the prices are pretty good and the shipping is fast.
