Anyone Talked to Sedman Recently?
Posted by: Jonathan Knapp ()
Date: August 28, 2017 10:27PM

I've been emailing and leaving messages for Ray for more than a month now with no response. I'm starting to get worried.

Has anyone talked to him in recent days?

The land of milk and honey (also called the golden state). Call him. He will return your call, usually within a few days.

Don't be worried - as of a couple weeks ago he was fine. I think this is his busiest time of year.

I have two or three emails hanging out there to him from a couple months back, still no reply. He knows me and we have done business before. I'd guess he's really busy w/ his real job.

Does anyone have a picture of this guy, Ray Sedman? Does he really exist or is he an undercover agent posing as something else? Anybody ever seen the movie The Professional?

Yes, Ray really does exist. It is not uncommon to see him in Palm Springs at the Toss. I also saw him (I think) at the Tacoma Convention a few years ago.
He still needs a haircut.

Anyone heard from him since the convention? I’ve been unable to get a response. He’s had my cyl heads for over a year

Don't know the guy. Over a year?! That's ridiculous.

He is around, I spoke with him within the past couple of days. You might want to give him a call, and leave a message. Include your name and phone number!
He has told me that recently he's gotten messages on his machine where people
either don't leave their name and phone # or they leave just their first name
and no number. It is hard for him to reply when they don't leave a number!

He has had my turbo cylinder heads for well over a year as well and has not returned any of my emails or calls.

Gregb, do as Kevin says. Ray will get back to you. I spoke with him last weekend. He does take up to a year to get heads done and longer for a complete engine. You should have known that going in. Are you sure you have the correct phone number? Maybe double check his website.

A year for a set of heads? He's had my Weber for 2 plus years. Have been trying to reach him since late May. No response to emails or phone calls. Last time we spoke in early May he wanted to know which vacuum canister I wanted. Was told it would be ready for shipping Friday of the week I spoke with him. Still no Weber.Two years, bit excessive!

During our consult last October for the direction I wanted to go with my engine, he told me he would have my heads done by Feb of this year. The new pistons and cylinders arrived in June and July. As for the heads, after numerous attempts at reaching him(email and voicemail), I asked him to ship the heads back to me or to another builder. He replied immediately saying he only had about an hour of work left. That was over 2months ago. He hasn’t replied to any of my attempts since...
