Cool My new engine building service...

O.K. -- guys and girls, my new engine building "service" is OPEN FOR BUSINESS!!! Finally, an HONEST engine builder!

Due to all the horror stories on the board about moronic or dishonest engine builders, I am COMPELLED to help you guys out.

OSO, please do not delete or move this thread and I will give you 10% of the proceedes!!!

I have no mechanical skills to speak of, and I am COMPLETELY baffled by the internal combustion engine. Also, I will deliver your completed high performance engine when I am good and ready (+ or - a few parts). That date will have no correlation to our agreed upon completion date. YOU HAVE MY 100% GUARANTY on that.

NEVERTHELESS, I will only charge HALF of what the self-proclaimed "experts" in this field cost. Sure your motor may not run. If it does run, it probably won't run long. But look at your SAVINGS! I have screwed you for far less than those other guys would!

Then when you are finally convinced I am a mechanical idiot (I tried to tell you), I will refer you to a REAL MARINE ENGINE BUILDER. Now how many of you people got that kind of service from the last guy that screwed you?!?

By the way, for those of you concerned that I might get your motor and F*#@ it up worse than it already is, just PM me your address, I will send you the bill for the work, and we can save you the shipping cost on the engine. Once I recieve your payment, I will be happy to send you the name of a builder in your area.

Damn. I can't believe I didn't think of this sooner. Come to think of it, anyone who desires to be screwed retroactively can PM me as well, and I can backdate a work order for you. Now how's THAT for service!?!

great idea...people should be bending over frontwards to give you work...if you can promise a quick turn around.....I'm in..nothing beats getting hosed in a timely fashion...and all the other guys take forever to jam it in.

by the way...I got a good line on bulk lube should this venture take off. just another service to offer...

Did you used to be in the plumbing business in Arkansas? If so, I think I know you.

ROFLMAO - Even the Missus had to know what I was cracking up about.
