Until then I have no reason but to believe everything that Bill has told me. Bill has not posted anywhere near all the "dealings" he had on this motor build/shipment. My advice, Bill, post all the details and let Larry respond.
That's what I was talkin about in my last post. So far, I hav'nt heard anything from the engine builder, only other people that are sticking up for him. What's wrong with that picture ???
Personally I believe that this whole thing could've been avoided if only the responsible party would've returned Bills calls, and made good on their mistake of how the engine was crated. It's clearly not Bills fault that there were issues about the crating that led to broken parts on the engine. Bill paid more than good money to have the engines crated properly, and they were not. Any reputable builder would've returned his calls and made good on the mistakes made by their employees. Not denied fault, called his wife a liar, refused to speak with Bills son about some technical info he inquired about, because Bill Sr. was the one that bought and paid for the engines. It's all just a poor call of business ethics. I could'nt even imagine treating a customer like that, especially after the tens of thousands of dollars that Bill spent with them.

RHR -

I would think you've got most everything squared away, but if there's anything I can do to help get you parts, etc. let me know, I will be in your area in the next couple weeks to deliver a set of blowers.

I was trying to respond for Larry since he will not. I don't see him on the computer anytime soon, and since I hooked these two up I feel some what responsible.

There is no use to say much else in the fact that RunninHot has many friends on here and it wouldn't do much good. Larry does not "refuse calls", but when you call 10 times a day, he needs to call you back.

Anyone who called Pinky a liar is wrong, and should not have said it if they did....

That was Bill"s engine stand......

Does anyone remember the thread about Bill's boat being fixed at Skater??? He threw Skater under the bus too.

Somebody called Pinky a LIAR ,,,and should ???????? WHAT

Bill's engine stand ???????? 1 bolt in it !!!!!?????

I dont get it ,,,again call 10 times ,,no return phonecall ?????

What else ??? Motor not right (atleast after shipping) ???
What else ??? Everything was paid and more then supost to ????

What else ,,,what ???? Now it even starts to PI$$ me off and i don't even know u .

IS THERE ANY ENGINEBUILDER OUT THERE THAT REALY DOES WHAT THEY SAY AND STANDS BEHIND THERE PHUCKIN PRODUCT ???????????

WHAT IS WRONG WITH THIS PICTURE ???
I think I covered it in previous posts.

He stands by his motors 100%

It was wrong to ship with one bolt.

If somebody told Pinky to shut up, it was wrong.

But I believe they are making it right. All I asked was a little patience.

It is tough to write back to you DareDevil. I don't believe you can read, let alone post.

Still even though he tries to make it right,,,is probable because u told him too ,,,i don't and did not see any reason why he even NOT returned the first call.

And if i would be boss,,,,i would fire the guy who packed and called Pinky a liar even if it was the best guy i have !!!

By the way its not about my reading or posting skills !!!

But whatever.
Dont let them get you excited Scott

no reason for anyone to get fired , just Pizz poor business & a very Defensive owner ......... NO my guy never said that , NO my wife never said that , funny though on the speaker phone it came thru my end .........
