As I'm sure you've figured out by now, NEVER sell ANY car part with payments. If they/you want it bad enough, save up!

As per your current predicament, unless you guys wrote up a contract signed by both parties, YOU have no legal leg to stand on. You just may have to go ahead and sell it, pay him his 'deposit', and deal with his immature animosity. You might even consider going to the police to at least make them aware of any physical threats to you if he so chooses that route. No matter what, from now on, any contact/conversation you have with him, YOU should a witness with you. No matter what, stay cool calm and collected and just state your intentions. "Pay the balance by (date) or I sell it for cash after which you will be paid back your deposit in cash". He also owes YOU interest on YOUR money that you could have used if the engine had been paid for in full, even's out I'd say.

I can't remember the whole deal but a buddy of mine had to give back a deposit plus interest that should have been charged on a car. The deal was that once an agreement is made to accept an installment of the sale price that interest from the seller should be charged. In the event the seller is going to return the funds, the interest should be included. However, I think he is assuming that the interest in this case would be like a savings. You could actually due the math and write it up that the money you have is the total of the hold plus interest on the installment payment.

Best advice, consult local legal council to get advice on the deal.

Whatever interest he wants, double it for storage of the engine :roll:

Any contract was voided after the end of the first month IMO when he didn't
Fulfill his obligation :!:
In a lot of cases he would have LOST his deposit anyway.

Seems to me,You have been more than fair!

Interest from the seller for financing a motor that he can't pay for. LMAO
I'd tell him to pay me by end of the month or he looses his deposit!

Almost sounds like he's been waiting to pull some kinda of bs on you anyway.

Default sold motor

If he said he would pay by the end of the month, HE is the one who voided the original agreement by not paying by the agreed time. Tell him to pound sand. Ask him what he would do in a reverse position

I love it everyime someone gets in a squabble about money and I mean a very small amount they go hollering lawyer.....cracks me up...trust me iF a man is sweatin 20-30-40 dollars he ain't got no money to go fooling around with no lawyer thats for sure....
