Default What would you do??

O.K. so I spot some boat stuff on E-Bay. The seller says he has other boat stuff for sale. I contact him and arrange to buy a drive from him.

The drive arrives and I notice that it has signs of corrosion and they had bondoed the rear cover on. i called the guy who tells the drive is fine, and he had a guy look at it before it left. I take his word for it and install it on the boat and head for Lake Havasu.

Within a couple of miles in the water, the unit has issues. I put the boat back on the trailer, where it continues to leak all of the gear lube out through the lower seals.

Contacted the guy and he says he will help with repairs or refund the money and take the drive back. I had an estimate done to reseal the whole drive,$556, to which he offers to pay to reseal just the lower,$300.

I decided to send the unit back, Now I can't get the guy to respond to IM's, E-Mail, or phone calls.

Now the question, where should I go from here??


The guy seemed to have a good backround...

at least 2 weeks.....He was suppost to be in Mexico taking care of business, but he has responded to and added new adds on EBAY since then. Today I had people in other states call him today, and he answered the phone for them, but not for anyone in my area code.
