At Scharfs we have been keeping remans in stock, all though fedex has lost one, so we are -1 core now.
Napa, Cardone, Autozone etc do not actually have them, because no one has cores. we have 4-5 cores out waiting to to be returned out in space but some customers seem to be keeping them, which will raise the price of cores. we have 2 remans here on the shelf, but if no cores come back, we will have a hard time keeping any on the shelf in the future. We had charged $25 a core, rarely got one back, then $50, still not coming back.

this is another part that i don't think there is a shortage of, but alot of gen2 people seem to keep all their bad parts, and that cuts the available core market to 0, and takes remans out of stock, and with new not available its a shortage again.
if all 5 people in the last 5-6 month turned there cores in we would have 7 in stock. and if fedex didn't loose a re-maned pump +1 more
Damn. I used to keep take off parts; but, not so much anymore. I had bought a new Bosch water pump for my 2002 from Rock Auto or Amazon.com and no core charge a couple years ago; so, threw the old one away since I figured no one would want it.
