Engine work..one step forward, one back. opinion needed
Posted by: Grandpacorvair ()

Purchased this from a Corvair vendor as in great shape. Was well packed and shipped promptly..but.... As you can see in the photos, it has two issues. My question is, would you accept this if it were you. There is a cracked hole that extends a bit close to the oil pump and the oil pump itself has one pretty good score mark as shown.

Also is what you see still usable? Otherwise it's in good condition.

I'm not nearly as experienced as most of you and would be unhappy with that part if the flaws had not been mentioned before I bought it. I don't know if it's ok to use or not. I have sold a fair amount of stuff on eBay and have overlooked problems or just didn't know, if the item is still useful to the buyer we'll agree on a discount if not I refund the money and have them toss it.

I wouldn't accept it. Send photos and request your money back. If it was though eBay, issue a dispute. I hope you paid though PayPal. They are much better to get buyer satisfaction.

The seller should have aluminum welded the cracks ups and flattened the face. That is just plain overtorque of the nut onto the skid plate. He should have noted the oil pump bore score. A quick clean up and clearance check, if he wanted no return of the part.

I would not consider it acceptable and would not attempt to repair it.

Ask for a refund or another good part. They can have this worthless part back if they pay the shipping. I assume you paid the incoming shipping. You should not have to pay twice for their mistake.

Its getting harder to find good oil pump housings. Always check for cracks!

I personally would not sell someone a damaged part like that. Even with the damage being minor. A complete description - disclosure has to be made.

For me it's... would I put this part on my car... or find one in better condition?! Then would I want to pass something on after that evaluation?! Nope!
