Procrastination is the thief of time, it is said. A year ago I noticed that chunks of rubber had broken off the Metalastik damper (#51/177) on my '53 XK120 DHC and made a note to self to deal with it over the winter. Well, we all have good intentions… While working on the car yesterday I found a large chunk of rubber wedged between the front carb dashpot and the air cleaner. This prodded me into action and the damper is now off and awaiting shipment.
My question is, Damper Doctor seems to garner most internet traffic, but I found a company in Salem, Oregon called Dale Mfg., anyone used them? Their website lists the Metalastik units from various Jags as ones they have dealt with in the past and their pricing is pretty reasonable. What has been the experience of those on this list? I recall that Rob mentioned that he had used Damper Doctor for his FHC.
Any comments welcome prior to me making the move to ship the unit out. Thanks.
