    JOEL AVERY Of HORN LAKE MS. IS A THIEF SCAMMER

    I bought a supposed 400 main dart block ready to run from Joel and he shipped me a blown up un usable 350 main block for my 1650.00. He wont return my emails or phone calls and i have begged and pleaded with him to make this right. If anyone knows JOEL AVERY of HORN LAKE Mississippi, 901 921 4610 please point him to this post so he knows hes famous now

    I was wondering about the local pickup thing too, but it sounds like he had it shipped for the 1650, since he was asking 1400

    I don't know a Joel Avery, but i have lot's of fellow racers in North Miss. that may know him, i in fact have a residence up there myself. Looking at the ad i donot see where it says 400 mains, so it must have been verbal. Not taking side either way, but you didn't say what was blown up on the motor :?: I will say that a Dart lil M block with billet mains goes for about $2300.00 depending who you buy it from. Also the 350 main motor is much better than a 400 main motor anytime, not JMO but fact. It sounds like it's a 4.155 bore, it can be bored to 4.180 safely if there are no cracks or damaged area's in the blk. if that's the case i think you got a pretty good deal at $1400.00.

    He shipped it to me for 250, thus the 1650. And the 400 main thing was verbal. And when i said blown up, i mean blown up. He sold it (verbally) that is was ready to run. Number 5 main was beat up and wallered out that the main cap and block register was hammered badly, and the main thrust area was actually bbroken and cracked. and someone had peened the block at a feeble attempt to tighten the register back up. an expensive repair and hardly (ready to run" Also obvious evidence of a thrown rod in 7 & 8 area.

    I stand corrected, with that kind of damage you definately got screwed, maybe that's why he decided to ship the block because anyone looking at the block in person would not have bought it. i'll ask around and see if anyone knows this person.
