Default Purchase deal went wrong. Need Advice

Group, i purchased a pair of 588 motors from the Offshoreonly Classified, and the seller indicated on the bill of sale the motors were in good running condition and also in several emails, after receiving the motors and going deep into them, noticed it was all messed up and both blocks had cracks in them. Called the seller and he did not want to do anything with it. I am in California and the seller is in Missouri. Any recommendations???
