I have to admit... communication is not his strong point at all...
that sucks though man...
I really don't see the obsession with parting out these motors into individual pieces... or should I say attempting to sell a "complete" motor with missing accessories, manifolds, fuel rails ect. That is NOT a complete motor.
Whatever the issue is I think it's the sellers responsibility to be CLEAR on what their definition of a complete motor is. And if they sell it in a non running condition (ie. missing parts) then it should be stated as such.
If people want to sell individual parts then do so, but don't sell motors with missing parts that's just ignorant.
