Update on current status of several out of stock items:

I have not been able to contact one of my factory representatives for nearly 2 months which is highly unusual.  We had a completed production run of SYT-5 Gen3 bodies that at last account was going in for re-plating.  This contact was one of my best working relationships in China, and we were on very good terms, and we were able to accomplish a lot while working together.  I knew that his father had serious medical issues that he was contending with, but communication until that point was ongoing regardless of progress on production runs.  Recently, I contacted the factory directly, and they also have not heard from him in quite some time.  I will reach out to a few other acquaintances in the US who had a longer personal history with him to see if they have heard from other members of his family.

This behavior is typical of a factory "ghosting" someone in the middle of a production cycle, but my faith in this working relationship is much higher than typical so I will not jump to that conclusion.  The more likely but far worse possibility is that something bad has happened to my factory contact. 

I am awaiting more information and will be following up with a new factory representative to assess the status of parts completed as well as tooling that I sent to them for headbasket production.  Payments were made in full but sent to my missing factory representative, so the status of parts in production is uncertain as well as what funds were already submitted to the factory.

This primarily effects SYT-5 Gen 3 parts and type 1 HT-11A headbaskets.  I apologize for the continued delays for these parts.  I know many of you have been waiting for an exceedingly long time already.  As of right now, things are a mess.

In the interim, I have inquired about a production run of Gen 1 SYT-5 bodies from ShuaiYin, and am awaiting their response.

Any idea when the 'good' SYT-5 bodies will be available again?

Already more than a year ago. Problems, problems, problems...  :(
There is a solution for every problem!
