Buyer BEWARE once you buy something from this man you own it right or wrong. Ordered a set of valve cover and they will not work to short (nothing on his site telling how tall they are) all i have been asking is to exchange them for taller ones and for 8 months all i get is a run around I HAVE HEARD EVERYTHING UNDER THE SUN on why i have'nt received them yet now. Now i have parts that are no use to me thanks Ron
BUY BEWARE

I find that hard to believe. Ron is a good guy although it seems he's been MIA lately. I'm sure there is a good explanation for this.

I agree, Ron is a good guy. Last year I ordered a Jesel belt, ordered the wrong one my fault. He sent me the correct one and let me sent the other back after I got the right one. No questions asked.

Have you talked to Ron personally about this? I just find it hard to believe he won't work with you.

He had a problem in the past with one of his suppliers. Is that what is going on here? If so it's kinda out of his control and he is at the mercy of the supplier.

Ron, if you're out there you need to come on here and clear this up.

BUY BEWARE
Mr Meyer i thought this was taken care since the last time i talked to you and Mr. Williams and had not heard back from you.
I talked to Mr. Williams about this again and he told me that he has not sent you another set of covers out.
We had a long talk about this he also told me he had sent another but they are lost although he he didn't give me any kind of proof of this.

Mr. Williams said he had another set ready to be welded up and he would send them out to you this week Please let me know if you get them.

I gave you his number and he said he had talked to you but looks like he dropped the ball .
I will stay on him all week to make sure this taken care of.

I am truly sorry about this and it will get handled.
