How do I get back my 64 Diff and powerglide???

Long story...short version. I was having my '64 transaxle being rebuilt in San Diego by a fantastic person and great mechanic. I was set to pickup my parts on Labor Day. When I couldn't make contact with him prior to my trip to his place(7hours away), I didn't go. So I kept trying to make contact. I found he was at a cancer center and things were iffy. I made contact with the local club and they were helpful. I made contact with the roommate who was less then helpful and finally around Christmas time he gave me a green light to have one of the local club guys contact him for pickup. He didn't hold up his end of the bargain. The mechanic passed away late December and now the property has been turned over to? There is another person in a similar position who is local and has promised to keep me appraised. I called California Probate and they have no record.
The 64 automatic diff was going into Corvino. I have not seen another oneconfused smiley
I had already paid if off and have records of conversation from the forum messages and a cancelled check.
ANY ideas anyone??

Did he have an obituary? We never saw one.... it should name any survivors...and most likely the heirs...

Google says...

Small Estate Exemption Limit Raised to $150,000. January 9, 2012.

Under previous California laws an estate whose gross value is less than $100,000 may be administered outside of the formal probate process.Jan 9, 2012

Stay in touch with members from the SDCC. PM Rod here on the CCF.

Contact the county Sheriff office and explain the transaction.

Hope it works out. It will take some time, but I'll bet you get it back.

You may try contacting the probate court on his estate. Hopefully it has not been settled, yoh maybe able to file a claim for your property.

Just reread that you tried the probate, it may be handled by the court system in the county he resided.

The estate of the decedent posts a NOTICE OF ADMINISTRATION TO DEBTORS in the personal section of the newspaper local to the decedent. See if you can find that notice online and respond as directed.

Rod would be a good contact as well as the president of SDCC Lori T.
I am willing to bet you will get your stuff. I know Paul was a great Corvair mechanic and was as honest as the day is long.

Thanks everyone, I will keep looking for a posting. I figured you-all had some knowledge base on situations like this. I will miss Paul, I know he was looking forward to San Diego hosting the national. To bad he won't be able to make it.
