I think "Idle Air Control" seems more likely than "I Am Confused" or "In Awhile Crocodile".

Not to steel your thread, look at the differential thread as it might save grief later down the road.
Just a heads up....

while I am sitting here patiently waiting for my mainifold they move at a snail pace in new zeland... I decided to replace the cheap hardware bolts (screws) in my drive train installed by the "sub contractor" for hillbank. I was advised by John Bessy and Mooris here on CC to check what was installed in my car and sure enough Im glad I checked. Here is a couple photos oh what I found installed.
The screw on the left is what was installed, the AN bolt and jet nut on the right is what I installed.

Could it possibly be that there are very few flights from NZ to SF at the moment ?

No, they moved at the same pace last year at this time. They have two speeds: Slow and Slower.

Can only call it as I see it....I've done business with companies in New Zealand over quite a few years (I'm in Australia) and they have always been rapid with freight deliveries.

Cheers, and good luck with your delivery Mike,
Glen

Australia to New Zealand is like New York to Phoenix. Should be same day, or next day at the latest.

Patrick - there's currently a pandemic.
Global shipping/transport is somewhat affected.
Hey...even interstate shipping is affected here because very few flights are available.

Cheers!

Patrick is still bunkered down in his basement, which is pre-pandemic behavior. He probably has no idea that there is a pandemic and how airlines have cut flights, laid off employees and shipping times have risen.

RodKnock? He probably just got back from a spy mission to see what is in Evan's garage these days.

I'm over on the Hummer forum now, waiting for the new EV version to hit the dealers.

I occasionally lurk around. I just don't post that often anymore.

That seems very steep. I will tell you that I was amazed when I found out how much freight is shipped on commercial airlines every day. With the reduction of flights / airline travel, freight capacity has been significantly reduced. I have seen air freight costs increase by over 100% on a regular basis, if you can even find a plane to put your shipment on...
