I must get at least one or two inquires a week for rebuilding one thing or another.
For example: Hey! I got this distributor that needs a rebuild. How Much?
So am I suppose to guess at what year and what engine size?
There are at least six different distributors that Geo/Suzuki's use. Three different shaft bearings and 4 different seals.
I want a transmission rebuilt. How much?
Again I must be a mind reader and guess at the year, model, and engine size.
Can you please put good contact information in the shipping box?
Oh! I forgot! the dog ate it! It got lost!
The labels on the outside of the boxes are either illedgible or get skuffed during shipping. It makes it hard on
knowing where to send it back too. I tryed to call Johnny, but he couldn't hear me yelling in Mesquite, when he lives in
Washington state.
A little bit more information will go along way it getting your parts rebuilt.

Pff. That's nothing. I get 3 dozen of those a week, and all kinds of other "interesting" emails and PM's.

I got one this morning asking about parts from a 10 year old thread, and routinely get a PM, and email about the same thing from two different names (some people actually use a name different than theirs for their email address), asking a question like " hey, just wondered how my parts are coming along?" They don't realize that there are 25 other orders on the go at the same time, and I have no idea who they are.

It hasn't changed in the last 10 years and it's not going to anytime soon.

If you can't pay for it don't send it.
I do rebuilds in a timely matter so that you can get your cars back up and running.
When I am finished with doing this work for you, I don't want to wait for you to get
your ship together and send the money for the work done.
Oh! I don't get payed till the end of the month.. is your problem, Not mine.

I totally understand your frustration.

Whether you are fixing or selling parts, a good rule of thumb is:

"Mean what you say, and say what you mean"
(as they say in Texas)

or, put another way:
