I ordered genuine big end bolts and main bolts for my 200tdi re-build but have been sent what i think are non-genune items.

the originals were ATLAS but the replacements are METALAC they have a webiste but its brazillian and i was wandering if anyone knew if thier products were ok.

btw land rover will only sell main bearing bolts in packets of 20!! at £2.15 each + vat Why 20 it hardly engourages you go go genune when you have to buy unrealistic quantities

I get everything from Bearmach and I mean everything and if its gen it comes in a bag saying it is gen every time no matter how small the nut or bolt it is singly bagged with a LR part number sticker on it.

its very annoying when you but a spare set of wheel nut and each one is rapped up.

but if its a good quality nut or bolt dose it matter

They would have been made to Land Rovers specifications, so I doubt there's likely to be a problem with the quality of them. A box of 20 is a trade pack, and is what Land Rover would supply to the likes of Bearmach, this is very common for parts that are not often asked for - at least they sell a whole box. I wanted the durite plug (that connects the wiring to the back of an alternator), and had to buy a whole box of them as well - even though I only needed one.
