Re: My Reconditioned Engine is in..has no power and running rough?
This is why I do all my own work.
Always they try to blame it on something else.
If the carby was fine when it went in, they have rooted it.
IMO, you should get a professional report done, if they find ANYTHING wrong ie timing or fuel mixture, then tell the engine shop they will pay for the report, and if they don't fix it you will be sending them a bill for the work required. All timing/tuning should have been done by them on installation of the motor.
Did you get a report on the condition of the motor from them? An itemised list of work carried out? Problems they found?
If not, ask for it. If they didn't do it, they cannot prove any problems with the motor are not their fault.
That sounds a little harsh, I know, but I have recently been fighting some shifty bastard on behalf of a mate for exactly the same sort of thing and am very pissed off with engine rebuilders right now.
