Thanks Pete for airing your laundry out on EKN. I have not received the insurance check from UPS yet as I told you. I also had decided to find another engine and put it in top shape. (I don’t know where you are getting your pricing but it boggles the mind that a K9B is worth $2500.00. Did you pay that much for a used KZ?) I am at the point now where I think you should sue me. If I have to watch you drag this through the mud, I’m all for it. I have no control over how UPS handles the claim. Hopefully the check comes soon. But in the meantime I suggest that you get some hard evidence together that your K9B is worth 2K+. You’re probably right, you should have found a reputable re-builder. A customer of mine in West Chester physically searched the address with no luck. I would apologize but I did nothing wrong. I shipped your engine and it was lost by the shipper. I understand I am legally responsible. We may have to let that play out. tdb/GFK


wow, really?


I have no idea what motor that is, so I did a quick search.  First one I found, rebuilt for $3,400!!!!  Here is the link.  Maybe $2,500 sounds pretty good.
