Agreed! All in favor,Say I

While it is an unfortunate incident, I just don't see where Ed would be liable. If he would have caught it (I don't see how, they look identical in the pic) that would have been great. Just remember folks...It's buyer beware, I know that this may come as a surprize to many people, but some boat salesmen aren't honest!!!

DO NOT give in, and report this guy to a collection agency!

Question Re: Ummm. Maybe you didn't see this...

In defense of that boat salesman for that donation company:

Unless he had X-ray vision, how would he know that the long-block of the starboard engine had a different cam and rocker arms than the port engine IF IN FACT THIS IS TRUE? Don't forget that this allegation was made long after the boat was in New Jersey that the engines were different.

If the original owner popped that engine and paid someone to replace it, maybe HE never knew the engines were different either. He may have PAID for a HP500 long-block, but got a 415.

Ed, Maybe they do match. Did he pull a valve cover off the other engine? I think you mentioned the rpm matched. Maybe they both have the same cam and non-roller rockers. Just a thought. Doug

That sounds like a likely scenario. Start digging there if the need arises.

Doesn't the Block itself have a stamping on it to tell exactly what it was from the factory?

I think Ed Cozzi did his job correctly. I think the buyer should go after the seller if this is in fact true.
