VW Case Dramas G'day NRs The story goes that i was given an aircooled VW engine, the idea was to make it into a performance spec engine for a dune buggy project. I dismantled the engine and rang around the local engine builders to get the engine case inspected and see if it needed oversized bearing for the main tunnels. The original quote was $70, if it needed to be cleaned as well that was extra. Now it gets interesting, they cleaned it by hot tanking it. It corroded the case so bad there was big visible pitting in the bearings journals and all over any shine machined surfaces, like gasket faces etc, as well as the whole case looking tired. They assured me that if the over size bearing sizes went big enough it was still easily reusable. So ok these guys are meant to be professionals so i went along with it. Next i get a phone call, mind you after hearing nothing for nearly 2 weeks, saying that they highly recommend NOT using this case after they "spoke" to some people and that all work done comes to $250 please come pick it up!!! I was rather short on the phone, i didn't say i was going to pay or not going to, just ok bye as i needed some time to think. The quotes i was given was over the phone and verbal so i have no way of proving that $70 was the cost of inspection. Before i go in and ask what the hells going on what is your opinion. I don't really want to pay them anything as they destroyed a perfectly good case but i would to pay the $70 i was first told if they are going to be reasonable. opinions?
