 I am sure they will be good.

 With a trusted name like Wassell standing behind it.

 I am sure guys will be blowing up their motors for years to come because the Chinese oil pump is 12 dollars cheaper than the SRM pump.

I think that's a bit harsh as nobody has seen one in the flesh yet.

Not everything Chinese made is awful. When I worked in IT, a lot of IBM kit came in with Made in China printed on it. And my cheap Chinese tractor is still going strong after 17 years.

The new Wassell pumps are made in the UK and are cast iron.

Next time I place an order I'll get a couple and try one on one of my bikes. I've got an SRM one on my black A10 and it still wet sumps.
