He would first have to take the drives to his mechanic who would inturn take them to his drive shop. But eventually he could get an email stating that drives were at their failure point at the time of purchase. He could then threaten the seller and tell him that if he wasn't compensated he would call his attorney.
Now, back to those super chillers..........how did that end up working out?
Wow, this may be my first post on here but I just cant let this one go. I have to interject my thoughts which I fully realize mean zip to anybody.
It seems like this engine deal is not the first issue you have had with internet transactions so I tend to believe it's something with you not them.
The people who speak highly of Jeff and his reputation speak the truth.
This guy has built more reliable horsepower by accident than most people have on purpose.
You call yourself an Investigator? Whoop-di-do! Your "facts" are skewed. Don't be so self indulgent, I have ChoicePoint too, big deal.
And finally you want to run that much hp in a 33 Outlaw with" Bravo" drives?
For what you paid for those engines you got back in parts. Get over it.
I think you're the one thats cracked, not the blocks.
I'll go back to lurking now.

Your only recourse here is if the seller knowingly sold defective motors...good luck proving that. How is anybody supposed to know if there is a defect in an engine unless it gets totally broken down? There is inherent risk buying anything that is used, especially a finicky high performance marine engine. Perform due diligence to inspect as much as is reasonable then accept the risk which is what seems that you did, the rest is just back luck. Stop trying to look to others for you misfortunes, that's part of what's wrong with this society.
I know Jeff. I have bought stuff from him in the past & never, never had a single issue with anything from him.
I know those engines were in running condition at the Shootout year before last. I was on the dock when the oil was changed in them & they were tuned up before the Skater that the engines were in was ran in the Shootout. They were 100% then. Boat ran 140+mph.
Jeff is Mr. Meticulous. If it was even questionable for condition, it was replaced. He is not one to abuse his toys.
I have a VERY hard time believing your story. Especially since I consider Jeff a friend & given my past EXCELLENT experience in business dealings with him.
Maybe I missed it but have any pictures been shown yet? Seems that would help with the indentification. Not to mention most good engine builders stamp a build code right into the block.
