Hi Steve,
I'm still waiting for that PDWA rebuild kit you were going to send to replace the incorrect one you sent the first time. Emails to you have gone unanswered. On April 12th you told me:
Quote: 36pounds from the brake man he is adamant he is correct on the number he quoted. If you want it I will collect on Monday and post foc and keep the other parts or bin them as it was my mistake regards Steve

I didn't want to air this in public but eight weeks is too long to wait.

Wow. No response? Disappointing. I know from your profile page you have logged on at least twice since I posted the other message; surely you've seen it.

All I'm asking is two things:
1. The courtesy of a reply
2. The correct kit you said you'd send, or alternatively if you can't get one, a refund of the money I sent you for the incorrect one.

Let the record show he met me half way. He refunded the money to my paypal account, but with no note of explanation, apology, condemnation, nothing.

Steve, I had hoped you might comment here to explain but I see not. I don't understand what happened, why it turned weird. I ordered in good faith, I consider the first kit you sent to be an honest mistake, I was more patient than most would have been waiting for the second kit (or even email replies) before escalating to this. I'm sorry it came to this but thank you for refunding the money.

With that said I consider this closed.

G'day Rob,

Thanks for this thread.

I gave the guy 550GBP three months ago for a gear box.

I heard nothing from him for 2 months and now my circumstances have changed and I'd like to get my money back.

He said he'd get onto it three weeks ago with absolutely no result.

He is an infuriating guy to deal with.

It gives me some comfort that you finally won out.

Regards,

Doug

Sorry to hear about your troubles, Doug. I hope he eventually does right by you.

Mike, I needed new orings. They're not the same as the B ones, or at least the ones in my C PWDA weren't the same as the B kit Steve sent (nor the identical B kit I already had on hand). I was able to find some orings of suitable size and material online and rebuilt it with those. Now at almost 5 years later it's still doing fine (and I'm touching wood as I type this. winking smiley )

Rob: I’ve got a bunch of o-rings intended for this...not original square cut, but others on the MGC forum have said they’ll work...PM your address and I’ll send you a few...if they don’t work you’ll only be out your time.

Hi Mike -- thanks, but as I said I was able to source some that worked. Nearly 5 years in and they're still good.

Cheers!
