Sort of reviving the dead here but I thought I would put my $0.02 here.
I just got a lightweight pre-2K pump kit in the mail today for a project that is taking shape. I haven't even received the old Autococker yet but I am ready to convert as soon as I get her.
A couple of things I noticed...
The build quality is top notch! This kit feels and moves nicely - no binding or any terribly significant wobble (it isn't bolted to a marker yet).
Mel ships quickly. Just ordered the kit and it arrived faster than I imagined possible!
