I order a Sachs clutch from Rock Auto, when it came its a Sachs box but inside is clutch disk marked Valeo and the Pressure plate is too, wrapped in Valeo paper, no name on the TOB. There was also a gas receipt from July of this year in the box (which is really weird, and I also found a return receipt for an AC Delco relay last month inside the box from that order)

I know people have report parts having other brands before, and a google search shows some people getting Valeo in a Sachs box before however I thought Sachs and Valeo were like competitors... should I ask Rock Auto for an exchange or to verify the part? I was "thinking" Sachs would be preferred under the Ram Clutch.

Ok, I guess I found my answer, apparent;y if Sachs doesn't make the part themselves, they just use Valeo. Which is weird cause the Sachs is cheaper on Rock Auto than the Valeo branded one.
