Wow, how did you find that? I had a brand new set of Morel lifters and one of lifters were missing a bunch of needle bearings. I just happened to spin the roller on the defective one and the roller bounced up in body. This was just as they were going in. I was very lucky it wasn't installed. That would have been a mess. Brand new box with a tag that said inspected by (name) too. There's no excuse for yours to have been installed looking like that. Where they lubed before installed?
Is the "he" your new builder? It really makes a difference if you can talk face to face with the person doing the work. Emails, texts and phone just don't cut it.Took the top half of the motor apart because Nick didn't build it according to what I asked. Once the intake and heads were off he pulled the lifter out and that's when he found it. Had no choice, had to completely disassemble after that. Not sure on the lube part.
That was a serious misscharacterization of you and it was grossly wrong! Even though I can be a jug head from time-to-time it’s still makes no excuse, for you simply didn't deserve that! I’m sure had I sat on that for a day or two I would rethink my position.
My most sincere apologies! You are a gentleman and a scholar!
You bring many a great ideas, critical thoughts, and excellent analysis to this board. It’s people like yourself that give people like me ideas and I thank you for that.
I deeply appreciate you addressing the situation in a caring and thoughtful manner (something that I should have done) and clarifying things. Thank you!
Today’s a new day!
What does fun street strip not track car refer to? I am not trying to beat a dead horse here, just want this clarified. I am trying to figure out what the difference between a race engine and a street engine would be in someone elses eyes.This engine was built over 5 years ago, and it was going into a street/fun car, not a track car.
When done, it was shipped to Dale Cherry with the documentation.
We just installed the lifter, we did not make it, but would have at least replaced it.
A complete invoice with items and cost was verified by Chris, and we did exactly what he wanted.
I never have had a very nice customer turn into an a-hole since many other people have had their hands and opinions involved in an engine?
After about 800+ turbo engines over 20 years, there have been a few issues with defective parts, but workmanship has been excellent.
