Those pic where from PSE - I sent them to PSE to get rebuilt.
Here is the eBay ad.

Ed @ PSE said he could repair them for $500 each - new ones cost $800.

its hard to tell by the picks in the ad.But with it saying 99% it not.

Its 50/50.Its does look bad but could be repaired by the pick.But is it cost efective or is it worth taking a chance of a leak?

I really wanted this to work out - I should have sent the blowers right back and contested the CC charges. The ebay protection policy is way expired. I might be able to go to the CC company, but I doubt it. It appears that the only avenue I have is court. Unless, of course, David at Thunder Marine steps up and either pays for the replacement parts or refunds my $.

Here are a couple pics...
I had bought things from them in the past, but I lived right by there. I'm pretty sure someone else runs the parts department now, there was a guy there, but it was usually a girl that I dealt with. She knew her stuff pretty well too.

David Stansel is the person I've been dealing with. His boss, Ron, was supposed to call me Friday but didn't.

Strip - It was very clear to me before I bought them that there was not any corrosion. It was specifically addressed in the ad. Also, I felt comfortable dealing a seeming reputable company.

I'd rather pony up the difference to buy new than to repair them.
