He didn't rip you off: he had no way of knowing, just like you didn't know when you bought it. What's so hard to understand? He was offering some money back to try to make it (more) right, even though he did nothing wrong.i don't need your money. i purchased a motor that was promised to be in good condition.. and it was junk....you ripped me off.
Good for you buddy. rojectsti.com:Until ALL posts bashing me both on here and on nasioc including in my sale ad for my car are removed my offer to refund $250 is rescinded.
"Assume" what? That everything the guy told us was was made up to sell the motor?Personally. I would never have split a subaru block and not planned on replacing the bearings. They are known for spinning them and if I was going through all that trouble I would have just planned on it.
As you stated you saw the condition of the block prior to leaving with it. If I saw that it was full of cat hair and dirt my final offer would have been low enough that I could rebuild it. You say you have built 2 dozen motors so I am not sure why with your experience didnt just assume.
