    Although I won't buy from him or luckyearlybird on Ebay (related..), I have to respond. First this can happen with ANY vendor. They don't put these engines together. They are shipped in the same box that they receive them. As far as missing parts, they are not the best by far on replacement or warranty.

    exactly, bgf doesn't have anything to do wioth how the engines are assembled....he's a drop shipper.
    what you get from bgf, comes directly from the factory that builds the engines and puts the kits together...he's just a middle man, making some money re-selling the kits.

    now, on the other hand, you shoudl be able to get ahild of him and he should provide you with a new headgasket free of charge.
    i have bought several engines from bgf and i have not had a problem with any of them.
    I have read bad things about his customer service, but i have no experience dealing with him for customer service.
    I know that if i was the seller and you got an engine from me with no headgasket, i'd send you 3 of them for free to make up for the mistake.

    These engines are not drop shipped. If so they would come from China and take a month or so to be delivered. Drop shipping is where I'm the seller will take your order, pay me and I call the factory/warehouse and they UPS or FED EX them. So even tho they send them out as received, I to would back up the product. I sell a clutch roller on two sites, should someone have a problem, they are 100% guaranteed...and no questions asked. I have not had one complaint about my product in maybe a hundred or so. I believe in full service after the sale. My Ebay is also at 100%, so why shouldn't I expect any thin less from vendors to hold up to their advertized warranty?
