    I am not Bitchin Tony,

    Actually standing up for what you offer as far as original parts!!

    It did not work in my case and my body Guy is set in his ways. I am more ticked that I still have the same issue with the rebuilt "New" part with the larger rivet installed. It cost me more to do what he wanted and my issue is still there.

    I will take that up with Him!

    Obviously there is some issue with the pin mounts on my car that must have been present since it was built!

    Damn ipad locked on me and had to retype all this from the PC.

    I know you're not bitching, but there is no reason you should have to pay for parts you're not going to use, and that I can repair (if needed) and then resell to someone who can use them.
    I don't think of taking a return as a defeat or a loss. It's just another link in the chain of business.

      ^^^^
      This and sending the guy unusable parts twice is what doesn't sit right by me.
      Doesn't appear to be a mistake or an accident to me.
      I am calling foul because I believe you knew better than to box any of this stuff up.
      I agree the guy big time jumped the gun fileing the paypal claim before contacting you.
      And he should have known more about what he was buying, but you could have prevented this
      entire fiasco by being upright with the guy on the brackets. Then it becomes Once bitten twice shy on the retainer. You could have prevented this whole thing by not boxing these parts up.
      I still believe you knew this going into it.
      It isn't all this other guys fault. He was counting on you same as you were counting on his payment.

        I've bought two things from Tony, one was exactly as described, the other was in better condition than I expected. Judging by what I've read here it's all being handled, even if feathers got ruffled in the process.

        Look, as I said before regarding the brackets. There is no way to know his intent with the parts unless he tells me. I sell parts to guys all the time, who are going to use them in a non stock application. They cut, grind, weld and chop all sorts of parts to work in all sorts of ways . it's called Hot Rodding.
        I TOLD him up front they were from a C Body! He obviously agreed because he sent the money. Is it my fault that he didn't spend five minutes researching the interchange?
        I gave him no argument, and a a quick refund!
        Robbing some guy from Virginia of $50 bucks for some caliper brackets he can't use is not the kind of thing I'm known for.
        The retainer? Honest to God, I missed the crack because I didn't have my glasses on. I screwed up .. I admit it. I have another sitting 50 feet away from me right now that would be in the mail RIGHT NOW if he had just messaged me.
        He only got the part this afternoon! He opened the package, saw the crack, filed the claim and started this thread!
        This guy is obviously a loose cannon!..and for some reason that I can't fathom, you are aligning yourself with him.
        He filed a claim asking for a refund instead of asking me directly for a refund. He can get his money back via the source he requested it from.
        Seems pretty straight forward to me

          I'm looking for the complete 11.75" C body setup right now for my 71 drum brake demon. How was Tony to know the guy didn't already have the spindals and other parts to convert his A body??

            I am not so much aligning with him as I am saying I believe you knew better
            before the parts were sent. At least on the brackets. You had to know the guy
            had no idea that what he was buying from you was not what he needed. You should have told him.
            You could have simply chosen not to sell it to him and told him they wouldn't work.
            I believes this is how the buyer feels also.
            So then he takes a chance on you again because all here is standing behind you.
            This time he gets a bad part rather than the wrong part. Mistake, accident or intentional he feels reasured he has been decieved and cheated twice now based off the first incident.
            I still stand by you could have prevented all of this. By not doing so is when the problem
            began. I blame you, you blame him. I have absolutely nothing in this just calling it how I see it.

                I know of no A-body cars that have c-body spindles,caliper brackets and rotors on them.
                The obvious 11 3/4" caliper bracket needed by anyone wanting to use them on a A-body
                disc brake conversion is not the C-body bracket nor is it the truck bracket.
                He has been a parts seller here for along time and will not convince me he does not know exactly which cars these popular brackets can be pulled from.
                If there is such a thing as a dirt track A-body using C-body spindles and caliper brackets
                It would be a very safe bet a guy asking for 11 3/4 caliper brackets on a A-body site is not asking for those. I call BS.

                  I see. So, what you are saying is that before I sell somebody a part, I should interview them. Get a feel of their knowledge, background, mechanical abilities and various skills.
                  Then, perhaps there should be a waiting period, where we each reflect on the part and purchase to see if it really fits our lives and goals.
                  You're right man...I should never have viciously taken advantage of this poor, misguided soul. I decieved him, led him astray and sullied my name and reputation all so I could make an interest free $50 loan for 5 days. Forcing him to pay for the $6 return shipping was just pure spitework on my selfish part. After all, there was no practical way to reach out and actually spit on his children or even key his car.
                  You called me on it, man.
                  Please, someone stop me before I destroy another man's dreams.
                  Hail Satan!!!

                    Google is your friend . It's a fairly common swap among those guys and only requires a shim on the upper ball joint to work.
                    As a Drag Racer, I have no idea what the reasons are for this being geometrically desirable to these guys, but I did sell the set in question to somebody who actually did use them on an Enduro car.
                    But then again, I'm a thieving prick

                      I have inquired about/bought B and C-body parts with whitepunkonnitro before. There is no way for the seller to know I have a few B-bodies in my stash.

                      He has sold me what I asked for, not what he thinks will fit my car which he knows nothing about.

                      According to the correspondence posted.....he stated they were C-body spindles from the beginning. Its up the buyer to decide if he/she wants them or not for any number of reasons that would be unknown to anyone else.

                      I have even bought parts for the wall before and I don't even have the cars they fit ....how would any seller know what I intended to use them for.

                        I know enough to tell people what the part is from, its condition, and then to take it back if it doesn't work for them....which I did.
                        So tell me. If I deliberately sold him a wrong part, why would I take it back? Why would I refund his money?
                        Note, he never said I gave him any problem with the refund.
                        For the benefit of everybody reading this thread and wondering what the hell you are carrying on about...
                        How did I benefit from any of this???
                        BTW. I seem to remember selling you some stuff. Why not talk about how I screwed you.

                                Recently did the Scarebird disc conversion on my '72 Scamp. I purchased the '73-'76 disc/drum proportioning valve from Tony. He told me that he had one, but was still on the car, so would take extra time. Up front communications. Right part and right price. I'll deal with him again.

                                Like I said I have stood up for you in the past as I have bought parts from you
                                without incident.
                                I just feel that as a guy that knows my way around mopars and the parts like you that I wouldn't reply to a guys add that is searching out 11 3/4 caliper brackets and not know he isnt looking for c-body brackets. Go as far as take payment put them in a box and ship.
                                I don't feel like I am giving you to much credit by saying you had to know these weren't what he was looking for regardless what he said. I feel you knew before you shipped them.
                                I would have.
                                You sound sincere and the retainer may well be an over site but the damage has already been done with this buyer and he believes you slathered grease over the cracked part and
                                sent it to him anyway. This seems pretty far fetched to me.
                                I believe you had to have known on the brackets while you were boxing them they went going to work for him. Shouldn't have sent.

                                  Apparently my mind has some kind of a glitch in it and I am the only one that feels
                                  this deal wasn't on the up and up. Perhaps your all correct but it just dont feel honest to me.

                                    OK, lets completely disregard the minor detail about me informing him up front that my brackets were from a C Body.
                                    You never explained how I benefitted from sending him the wrong parts and then refunding his money.

                                      You are out and out calling me a liar and thief, and offering zero to back any of it up besides your opinion. An opinion formed AFTER you had smooth, successful dealings with me.
                                      I'd say your mind has a bit more than a glitch.
                                      You and the guy from post 27 should get together and compare glitches

                                        You want me to disregard the deception? This is the part I have the problem with.
                                        Its not honest. Not gonna dance around the real issue with you on this.
                                        You say you didn't know, I think you did. So what.
                                        One of us has a character flaw, must be me.

                                          You never explained how I benefitted from this deception.
                                          I mean seriously..tell me you're drunk or something, and I'll let this slide.
                                          If not, tell all of us exactly what I gained by sending him a wrong part and then sending him his money back promptly and with no argument.

                                            I believe you knew those brackets weren't what he was asking for when you sent them.
                                            Feels wrong to me. From the way you are reacting to him and me I can see how
                                            the seller could come to a conclusion that you sent the broken part intentional also.
                                            Seems you would rather fight than make it right. How am I to come up with another
                                            view.
