bill is great to work with. he did my cigarette motors ,on time on budget, kept me informed, everything as promised.ateco would be my 1st choice.I will say no matter who does your motors if you want to be boating in spring, better get them in. good work doesnt happen overnite.

7 posts. Hmmm, I could be wrong, but this thread smells similar to another thread related to the builder in question...


Can't comment but your post DonZ sounds fishy .

It's always weird when a thread pops up posted by a user with NO HISTORY on here at all...

I'm going to go ahead and give the guy the benefit of the doubt this time. We all started with zero posts at one point or another, and it's not uncommon for something bad to happen to someone in order for them to "break the ice," so to speak, on a forum like this one.

He's been around for nearly 2 months with various posts regarding a new engine install...I'd venture to guess that he's finally installed it and it's not doing what it's supposed to be doing.

How about some more details, DonZ.

Not me, I smell something hiding in the wood pile!

Any chance a mod can compare the OP's and Brad at Ateco's IP addy again??? Or do we have to wait for Brad to come out and say he has no idea who this person is like last time???

I've delt with Bill at Ateco and they were great. Kit came complete with everything required! Would definitely recommend them

Hey, I've never dealt with Ateco. They may or may not be a great outfit. With that said, after the last fiasco where Brad was pumping his business through an AE he created and then denied it, and was subsequently busted by the IP police... you have to be a little suspicious when a new member comes on here looking for info on these guys!

Then again, maybe he's had some issues with them and is looking for more info on them. Who know's but I'm sure the intent will come out shortly...
