            Don't order from distributors anymore, go straight to AMF. Very few backorders.

              Completely disagree with that statement. AMF has more on backorder than my local distributor.

                The distributors get their parts from AMF too, unless you are buying aftermarket parts. I haven't been having any problem with my AMF orders.

                  Dist. will only stock parts that have a short turnaround time. They can't afford to stock parts that will sit on their shelves for a long time. Depending on your purchase profile the parts are 5, 10 or 15% off with AMF. Dist. cannot do this. The best bet is to cut out the middle man. Always have had good luck with AMF direct.

                    Or call or email me to find out if there may be extenuating circumstances. We try to fill at a rate of over 95%, but sometimes there are circumstances beyond our control.
