    Default Toyota Crown - MS50 Series Idler Arm Group Buy

    The Idler arms for the 50 Series Crowns have been NLA for a while now in both Genuine and aftermarket. With more Crowns popping up on Toymods I have been hunting around for options on these for the last few months and have only managed to locate 1 spare which was a NOS item and supposedly the last one in the country.

    As a heads up the Idler arm is actually a fraction longer than the original factory MS50 series idler (maybe 5-10mm) but it is the recognised replacement part and I have had one on my Wagon for the last 3 years or so with no dramas.

    After long talks via Bursons with the supplier of these they have agreed to organise a special buy in of the Idler arms, BUT only if the sale Qty is 10 or more.

    This group buy will only go ahead if there is enough interest/volume to do so.

    I will be closing the Group buy wed next week, which is Wed 24th March. At that point I will try and confirm the required number of Idler arms is possible and then take the $95 payment from each party. Once the payments have been received I can place the order. In the interst of not missing out on the remaining stock this will be being pushed through as quickly as is possible so payments will be requested promptly once we have a go ahead on it.

    If they cannot supply enough units to meet the demand, Idler arms will be allocated on a first in first served basis. In the event someone misses out their money will of course be refunded in full. Obviously being a special buy in you cannot return these. You buy them, you own it.

    The Idler arm is part number SX1129 and is the listed replacement part for the models listed below:

    RS/MS50 Series - All
    RS/MS60 Series - All
    MS70/75
    MS83/85 - (Power steering only)
    MS111/112 - (Power steering only)

    I can confirm I have one on my MS53 but cannot confirm fitment for the other listed models.

    The Idler arms should be $95 each (Plus postage if you can't pick them up from a Club meeting) which is under the suggested retail ($114.55) for this part and we are not being stung with the international Freight .

    If you would like to purchase one as part of the group buy Shoot me a PM and I will tally the numbers, If we get enough people it will be a $95 PRE PAYMENT before we can order them. If you own a 50 or 60 series Crown and intend on keeping it then you would be Crazy not to have a spare Idler arm (or 2) for it. This is a short term window so if you are in, let me know.

    Thats the list guys !.

    Other than the couple of people who are getting back to me tonight. I will PM each of you the bank account details for the $95/per unit postage price. Any "local" freight costs we can sort out once they arrive.

    Once the dollars are in we can place the order and confirm we can get the numbers.
