I just wanted to post a warning about buying products from PartsConexion.
I picked up a pair of tubes for my T4 from them. I was specifically looking for a pair of Brimar Yellow T CV4024 tubes. Their listing showed exactly that. Product was listed as NOS.
After receiving the tubes, I noticed that the yellow T label on the tubes were a plastic sticker. It’s my opinion they placed the stickers there to make the items appear to be something they are not, probably to increase the price.
Correct me if I’m wrong, but I doubt Brimar (or any of the old valve manufacturers) used plastic stickers on their tubes. Ever. Were plastic stickers even around in the 40’s and 50’s?
IMO, this is shady as hell, and will be the last time I purchase anything from them.
I have reached out to their customer service department via email and am awaiting an answer. I requested a full refund and explained why I wanted this, and why I am very upset.
EDIT - I’m going to share their communication below. They were very level-headed in their reply, and offered an apology as well as a refund (which they state they will process tomorrow). I’ll update this post, if needed.
