WARNING!! To ALL FoxTBirdCougar Members! LOOK December 05, 2006, 10:07:10 PM Do NOT under ANY circumstance, buy from, or deal with, Charles E. Haug (Chuck Haug, User ID girlsliketurbos2). See the original thread here:http://www.foxtbirdcougarforums.com/showthread.php?t=10873And the NATO thread here:http://natomessageboard.com/ultimatebb.php?ubb=get_topic;f=11;t=001804;p=1#000022His ad stated "newly balanced crank with weisco pistons crowler rods and total seal gapless rings with high rev springs. all of this is for a 2.3 motor with a need of a rebuild. everything is brand new never used. i changed my project to a 5.0. they are standard size with no overbore".When I called him and spoke with him four times over the phone, he was very upfront with details. Wiesco forged turbo pistons, Crower Sportsman Rods, coated Clevite Bearings (rods and mains), Total Seal Gapless rings, balance 2.3T crank. All standard bore, standard bearing, ready to drop in. He had his machine shop (Oddy's Performance) mail me the "balancing sheet". The sheet was for a static balance only and only to the quote "stock re-sized rods, aftermarket pistons". (Arrived after payment made)A deal was struck for $400 plus $95 shipping. I paid with a WaMu Money Order (#698697784, Nov 13, 2006, I have a copy of the signed, deposited money order with his bank account #). The parts arrived last week via UPS. The box was in poor shape. The crank, rods (with pistons attatched), and bearings/rings were simply floating in a box of packing peanuts. Needless to say, the crank broke all 4 pistons and rods. The pistons are actually a no-name Chinese knock-off (flat-top, full-floatin pin only), the wristpin slams back and forth in the bore, the rods are stock with stock bolts (used), there is only 2 sets of rings (Total Seal, NON gapless, regular steel, NON turbo application), 2 sets of cam bearings, 1 set of main bearings (non-coated, no-name, no packaging), and a very nasty rusted beyond use crankshaft. There were no rod bearings. Pictures included.He has two address's listed and goes by Charles or Chuck.164 Carriage ParkWest Seneca, NY 14224and234 Columbus AveBuffalo, NY 14220Phone #'s are 716-602-7183, 716-674-0695, and 716-822-8102. I have not heard from him since the day the parts arrived. He knows that I am extremely pissed off and want my money rightfully returned. I have left 3 phone messages, 3 PM's, and 1 email in the last 8 days with no response, so this is my next step. BUYER BEWARE!!
