Cheers.... seems to be fighting against me...everyone helping to get this built has let me down🤨..I even had to take the wheels back after they had been powdered as the paint just popped on their rear hub wen the guys want to balance them..so they hadn't been acid dipped before painting....engine crank wouldn't turn properly after fitting new plus 10 bearing from Burton's so they had to line bore the houses I guess... It's been a devil to get this far.. It's new name is Transtine 👿
Pick up my rebuild engine from ring engineering Friday...looks proper done now....I was amazed at the state of the old pistons in it...and as you know the block was screwed to..valves were completely seized and rusted ..one piston had a lump out it's top...still in shock the last builder had the front to give me it back like this...🤬I'll get some pics up of them soon...I'm sure peeps woukd be interested in seeing them...
Bay painted now...gearbox is in....engine back now I'm in the process of tarting it......see piston...this was in the so called rebuilt engine....dunno how this person let me collect it like this,saying it's been rebuilt ..🤬..I'm still furious about it..lost about 1100pounds 🤨🤨,,,, Maybe a response would be good 🤔🤔🤔
Not the place to air grievances, I dont know what crap you have been fed but those pistons never came from the engine I gave you. One has a melted crown!! Where did they come from, the pistons I fitted were sandblasted and clean. Someone is feeding you a line matey
Come see me for all your Transit associated needs!
Right Andy...following yr foul language to me in yr phone call and texts this morning calling me a w, and moron and a twat I've decided that when I return to the engineering firm Tues to collect a flywheel I will ask them if they mixed up the old pistons from another job...if they hv I'll apologize here ....in the mean time can you please explain here about all the other crap that was still in this engine...you hv the pics I sent you,..the rusted seriously valves,all of them..the mission rockers(Not in the box of bits),..No new core plugs ..which I supplied,and never got back.... You had my engine for 18months..and got 1100 pounds out of me...🤔...you said I was mugged off by by them giving me crappy old pistons back.......also,..remember ringing me up in late August 19?... asking me or 450pounds coz the guy doing the rebore and head skimming needed paying.?..well I'm not very engine tech minded but how comes the block had old sleeves in the bores and I had to supplied another block coz they said it's knackered?...the list of questions goes on..🤔.... Anyway...you shouted like a crazy man down the phone then hung up...then I like yr half polite and admittance of guild in the text after....thanks...well,you can't hang up here,..and as u said your not going to block me....... So please explain above...and as soon as I talk to my engine guys about the possible piston mix up I'll get back..... Nice to clear the air,don't ya think?
Like I said, not a place to air grievances. I am not prepared to discuss this or amy other personal matter on here. If you want to have a civil conversation then PM me. If you want to rant on about how upset you are then dont. Hot weather, bad tempers, old wounds all test the patience. I did offer you to put all thia right, you declined and as such you made the bed you now will have to lie in. You seem to have implicit trust in the engineering company, I dont and they are not going to let me off any hooks they may have. I cannot and will not carry on aplologising for mistakes made in the past just because you are pissed off based on lies you have been told, not by me I add. If you want to be adult about this then we can carry on, if you decide to use this forum as an open slagging place then I will ban you as this is not the place, no matter how much you enjoy sling muck and insults, yes, you called me a few choice names but that doesnt fit with your one sided rant. Nuff said, PM if you wish to continue.
Come see me for all your Transit associated needs!
Ends on here for the readers... Sorry the truth hurts...you said you would rather not discuss it hear..but you continued the argument 🤔...but I can and the readers can now see yr not going to explain the crap you gave me back...and if I continue yr going to ban me,after saying ,Gary do want you like on forum I'll not block or ban you🤔.... And as for trying to talk to you without you going absolutely crazy at me😂well...afterall your the victim here.. Readers,,you can get me on buysellcortina.. I'll keep the build going there... Truth hurts,hurts,hurts.🤐🤐🤐🤐🤐
Nice pics....these are the ones I send you one FIRST day of collection..I suppose you didn't see this crap on your rebuild....but as you said on the recorded phone chat.... That engine will still run Gary...🤣makes it all better ...
Self pity😂...and yes,folk on here will pick up on who's the thief here.... Your knowledge on transits is great,you lure people into yr world of, yes I can do that .....and you mugg them off... You say this is not the place to discuss my grievances but I tottally disagree..people need to know yr not the nice guy you portray yourself as..the mk1/2 guru..I know there's others Andy.🤫....I can say what you are here,as you hv me...so don't get hasty yet and block me😄....remember,you did say you wouldn't .... let's let readers get truth here,on Your forume as you told me in that text. Oh.... is it possible you can return my gasket top end set,my core plugs and the two missing rockers.....I hv a new Burton late oil pump here,..the wrong one you got me to order,tried to fit it...then months later you tell me I've ordered the wrong one🤣.dirty and oily but its ok,send it back you say🤔 oh ,also the one you got Ralph to send you...I had to send that back to him BTW..as that was wrong one to..yr directions again...still,you kindly found one and had the cheek to say I never offered to pay you for it..😂😂🤣remember that Andy?.... AS reader's can guess,I'm furious about being mugged off...my rebuild is on a very tight budget and loosing 1100 pounds is crazy..I thought I could let it go but it's hard,.. alot of hard work goes into earning that kind of money Mr. It's coming readers.... recon my days are numbered........ So glad I decided to join Peter Lee's club....👍

That's enough now noge. I have locked this thread, and do not expect to see another thread about it. This is not the place for character assassination. Think yourself lucky not to be banned. If you are leaving this site, please delete your own account in your profile. Oh and good luck with the Transit Club. I was sat around the table at the Ace Cafe when the club was formed. Strangely, I did not renew my membership for the second year.
