Default Truth in advertising.

This guy's sales pitch could use some work....but hey at least he is honest.

This auction is for a junk Road Demon Jr carb. I hate it and was going to throw it away but I thought that I would let someone else share in the misery of this carb. I recommend using it on a new engine so that when you start it, you can fill up the cylinders with fresh fuel and break in the engine correctly.

Look at the description...where it says "Placement onj vehicle" he has "rear" and where it says "other part numbers" it says "junk" :lol:

actually this isn't the first time I've heard of a new barry grant carb having metal shavings in it.....I'm thinking it might be worth getting cheap and throwing a kit in it.......but knowing some people on ebay...some guy will buy it and then leave him a negative freedback when it doesn't work....lol

You got to go to the site to enjoy this one. I didnt see it at first till Tod pointed out what was funny. Once I saw that I couldnt help but laugh.
