    Stephen, I thought of this today on my way to work. I remember a month ago or so, that some company out there was making new Turbo 400 to NP205 adapters and that made me think. Would it be feasible to make new 465 to NP203 adapters? That way people wouldnt have to search the yards over just to find an adapter, plus it could be made stronger than the original and I'm sure you would sell a ton since you already make the doubler kits. Just a thought.

    There is a Vendor on this site that has said they are going to start reproducing the 465/203 adapters. I think ORD has said it may be a possiblitiy but this company has said they are doing it.

    I will respect there forum and not mention the name. You must look for it.

    It's a great idea.

    But from a marketing standpoint, it requires a large cash advance investment to tool up for it, with a limited market of buyers.

    I think the adapter market is ripe for an infusion of hard to find applications though.

    I know, I just went through it.
