As there was significant wear I got to pay for everything else (cylinder, bearings, carb, crank) they fixed. The carb was even worn!

It burns me that they went ahead and repaired it then called me. I would have had them put it in the re-cycle bin. According to what they charged me, the parts were cheap. So I have a old engine (by the S/N) that has all new parts except the lower case.

NO MORE USED ENGINES! I'm 2 for 2 for duds. I won't touch another DA, EVER!





Brent I feel for ya!! That's not fair when you hear of all the others that get the free service treatment.

Re: The never ending engine thread, East-West

WOW Brent . That's very disappointing for sure. Looks like shine is about the only thing going for it at the moment. And don't forget the wait time and the $30 shipping that you had to pay. All for a power plant that some of the 35cc's are coming close to now.

But you pay for that exceptional DA name, right!!

Had you an EME, DLE or GP you would have been flying in a few days. Then again they aren't as shiny

Thanks for sharing Brent... This is what sets the motors apart

That is not cool that they repaired it before calling you. Then expect you to pay ?????
