    So I make this deal for a set of used Ebrock heads with rockers and pushrods for $800. I keep asking the guy when can I come over to get them. Each time it's in a few days. I have about a dozen emails back and forth. Supposed to get them last weekend but he couldn't. Then it was this weekend.

    He emails me tonight he sold the car with the heads.

    Don't get why people like to waste your time and not honor their word.

    So, now I am back to looking for some heads, rockers, and pushrods. Already bought pretty much everything else. Good thing I didn't tear down my motor as we were going to swap out the rockers and pushrods.

    /rant off

    Time for a few jack n' cokes

    People aren't being held responsible for their spoken word anymore. The anonymity of the internet has bred a population of limp wristed pansies intent on hiding behind what image they want people to see of themselves.

    Or maybe I'm intent on doing things the old way?

    The very least he could have done was told you he had a sale pending with the car. It was a douche move on his part for certain, but at the same time....smart on his part that he was able to hang onto two potential buyers, instead of banking on just one.

    I agree that you should honor what you say. That's what I try to hold up on unless something really does go south.

    It just burns my chaps the way he handled it. Talked on the phone a few times. Offered to give him $100 to hold the parts. Kept telling me, no we are good. Last conversation on Saturday was he we are going to meet this weekend, he gives me his top end, I give him my rockers and pushrods. The jerk was full of it and like Brian said, was just covering his butt.

    Oh well, I wanted TFS 17o's anyway. Will keep looking for a set.

    I still think I'll get my top end done before Mike gets his V3 installed. lol

    There are a few people around ATL who are selling some 170's on craigslist. I know you are in FL though.

    The flip side of the coin is that his heads may have had some serious defect that wouldn't show up until they were put into service. He sounds like the kind of guy that would hide something like that from you. You still have your money and can go look for a reputable seller.
