WOW! Is right.Sell a guy a cracked head and then not stand behind it. Hope you sleep well.
OK, so now we have "the rest of the story."12/7/17 Sent head exactly as I received it, never having looked at it. Just re-packed and sent for his offered price. Head was sold to me as cleaned and ready for use, I was trusting with the seller.
12/11/17 PM from Kevin: All the parts arrived intact. The head was much nicer than I expected.
8/14/18 PM from Kevin: That RH4 head you sold me I sent to Jim Comstock and it turns out its junk - cracked all the way through the exhaust valve guide bores. I'm not exactly happy about this but I'll wager you didn't see the sharpie marks indicating the cracks. Any thoughts on how you want to handle this?
8/15/18 reply from me:
I never even looked it over, bought it without disclosure, and never did anything with it except pack it better than it arrived and sent it to you.
You tell me what YOU want to do. (sure would have been nice to know much sooner)
I have yet to hear from KEVIN, or I would reply and do exactly as he requests, IMMEDIATELY.
Anyone have any basis for having ANY KIND OF PROBLEM with the above?
Generally, yes. If it can be repaired with vacuum & epoxy, then carefully reamed to next oversize with sufficient press fit friction, I would think it could be usable once again.Doesn't a crack through the guide hole mean the guide is no longer held securely ?
