Hello Tachar-ga,

I assume that you are located in Australia based on your previous
question here:

There are a lot lof companies you can find in the Internet that sells

In Australia, one good source is 4wdWorld.

Hello Feilong,
Thanks for that. As you suggested, there are quite a lot of links to
suppliers of the 4M40 head. What I need to find is a direct contact to
an Original Equipment (OE) manufacturer, possibly in Japan, where I
can buy directly, or an agent of such manufacturer. The Japanese OE
manufacturer who produces the heads for Mitsubishi generally can't
sell directly to other parties but they nevertheless generally do sell
to third parties through  an agent in another  country or, sometimes,
even in the same country. We are dealing with a supplier of Toyota OE
parts through a country in the Middle East for example and are getting
the OE parts at unbeatable prices. That's what we are looking for for
Mistubishi. Can you help?

Hello Tachar,

Thanks for your clarification. I'll try to look for sources other than
what I have given you. Give me some time and I'll let you know. Have
you tried contacting the companies I've given so far?

Request for Answer Clarification by tachar-ga on 28 Feb 2003 01:55 PST
Hi Feilong,
Thanks for that. No, I have not tried as the indication of prices I
found on your initial info was clearly too high, showing me that we
were not dealing directly with the source nor with one level lower. By
the way, I live in Pretoria, South Africa and am a French speaking
Belgian who's been enjoying the quality of life here for the past 18
years! Not Australia! And you?
Kind regards.

Hi Tachar,

As I said before, I assumed that you're based in Australia from your
earlier question (
Based from your comment, life must be good for you there in Pretoria.
About me, I'm based in the Philippines and eager to find you a source
for that cylinder head. It would really help me if you can provide
more info for the following:

1) Since you said that the price is too high, please give me your
ideal price for this specific part to help me filter what companies to
ignore and what companies I should give you.
2) Your preferred location of the supplier
3) Your preferred delivery time
4) Your preferred terms of payment
5) Other related info that you think I might need to give you an
accurate result

From the above, you can ignore numbers 2 to 5 if you want to make your
personal inquiries on the matter. But please give me number 1 because
it can make my search faster. Please give me time to research on this.
I'll resume my search once you give me the info. Thanks Tachar.

Best regards,

Hi Tachar,

It's been several days now and I'm still waiting for your reply to my
clarification. You must be too busy right now so I hope all is going
well on your side.

Best regards,

Hi Charles,

I just would like to let you know that I'm still working on your
question. The search strings I used yielded too many results and I'm
still sifting though all of them. A cursory search using "4m40"
yielded nothing relevant to your need. I hope you understand and
remain patient until I get the info for you. Thanks.

By the way, I would like to suggest that you have your email removed
from this page. This page can be seen by the public and I'm concerned
that you might get spam emails because of that. You can ask to remove only the email address for you.

Best regards,

Clarification of Answer by feilong-ga on 11 Mar 2003 12:57 PST
Hi Charles,

I'm glad you had your email address removed. I hope you're not
impatient. After a long time of detailed searching for the specific
cylinder head you are looking for, I found nothing that specifically
mentions this cylinder head for the 4M40 engine aside from what I have
given you earlier. Some sources doesn't mention their price. I don't
like to point you to the wrong direction that's why I'm carefully
making this clarification:

Would you settle for a list of "possible sources" regarding 4M40
cylinder heads for Mitsubishi and Colt vehicles (Please note: No
"4M40" mentioned in these sites)? I'll try to filter and narrow it
down as much as I can.

I sincerely want to help you to the best of my capacity but I have no
means of making telephone inquiries to these companies so your company
would have to do it on your own. I hope you understand.

All the best,

Hello Feilong,
I am patient, sometimes, and I try to be patient all the time. Not
easy. In 2Cor. 13:4-8, God gives us a definition of love and it starts
with ..... patience!! But while I am patiently waiting, I also work. I
have located a supplier in Singapour who has an agent in South Africa.
The South African local agent will not reveal the name of his supplier
of course but his price DDP (delivered duties paid) of 720 USD for OE
parts is unbeatable. I therefore suggest that it would be fair to
settle for the name and telephone number of the supplier in Singapour.
What do you think?
Kind regards.

Clarification of Answer by feilong-ga on 12 Mar 2003 05:37 PST
Hello Charles,

Great! I believe you contacted the agent through phone inquiry --
something I can't do because of the high charges of my service
provider. Your utmost satisfaction is both my priority and
responsibility. If the agent you found suits your needs then by all
means, go for it. As a result, this research won't be significant for
you anymore. Would you like me to pull-out my answer? I'm asking you
this because I'm avoiding to have a question refund or a low rating.
The decision is yours.


Request for Answer Clarification by tachar-ga on 13 Mar 2003 00:07 PST
Dear Feilong,
I think it is better for you to pull-out your answers as you said,
except if you can find the agent in Singapour? No, I din't use the
phone, the local agent contacted me himself. I call that a blessing!
But I am still interested to have the info on the Singapour supplier
as we try to avoid as much as possible or at least limit as far as
possible intermediaries in our supply chain, not just for cost
purposes but mainly for efficiency reasons. So, if you can find this
supplier, stay on. Otherwise pull-out.
Whatever you do, thank you for the help.
Kind regards. Tachar

Hello Charles,

It was a blessing indeed! Since you are still giving me a chance
regarding this matter, I'll stay on and try to locate the Singapore
source. If I failed to locate it, I'll notify you and ask for your
approval to remove this answer. I have a small request to ask: Could
you give me the name of the agent? If it's a company, please put it
here because it could make my search a lot easier. If it's a person,
don't. I'll wait for your reply regarding this.

Hi Charles,

My new search is focused on cylinder heads and casting suppliers from
Singapore. I filtered the results from my search for and it seems that
not one is based in Singapore. However, the suppliers listed below can
give you new leads, and perhaps find a cheaper source especially from
bulk orders. I emailed some but until now is still expecting their
response. Since I also stated earlier that I have no capacity to make
long distance calls, you will have to make your own inquiries. I hope
you find a good source from the companies listed below:
