If anybody has had experience or has any advice please feel free to give it .
I unfortunately let my good nature overrule my instincts and helped a guy out on a dock where my friend keeps his boa.
.I started by volunteering to take a look at why one motor was not cranking and after that he asked if there was anything I could do for his generator that the previous shade tree mechanic he had look at it said it was dead.
The next day I had the generator purring after 3 hours of research the previous night on the internet .I than attended to both of his old ugly Crusaders and determined they were getting water in the cylinders..
Long story short I let my pride get in my way and revived the old dogs that everyone said couldn't be done.
The job took a little longer than expected because one of his remanufactured heads He purchased was missing the rotater cup under one of the exhaust valves and after finally figuring that it was not the 25 year old corroded ignition system nor the Carb . I ended up getting away fixing the valve on the head without removing the head but had to remove the exhaust again.
And than the carbs were bad and than the raw water was bad. Meanwhile this azz tells me the whole time the motors purred like kittens before they quit cranking. Yea right?
Anyways long story short all along i tried to keep this guy with in 300 or 400 of him owing me at me wrenching for 40 an hour on this piece of stinking Crap. Meanwhile hr says i always take care of my people in the end .
Well i finally work all the bugs out of it that were nothing to do with me and this ass owes me 1250 bucks in the end and he goes fine no problem thats reasonable i charged him a total of 3300 hundred to rebuild 2 454 top ends and fix a generator and numerous other crap .
Next day after he says I am harassing him , than he say the hours are wrong , and than next he threatens to get a restraing order on me because he knows that i have a few scuffles on my record from years ago.
Anyways If I go to small claims court and win I can place a lein on his boat but what will that entitle me to other than payment if he goes to sell the boat.
This Jackazz sucked the last little bit of trust and NiceGuy I have left in me these days.
