If we are going to flip to the other side of the coin, maybe 40 years ago when I still had the time to restore carburetors, received one that was literally broken to pieces. Called the customer, and he was up in arms, and filed a claim with UPS. The box really didn't look that bad. I took pictures for UPS, and also had another one of the exact same carburetors. Placed it on the box to take more pictures. The complete carb would NOT fit in the box. UPS denied his claim. I boxed everything up in a much bigger box, and UPS sent it back to him. I never heard from him again. And while not exactly in the genre of the thread, it is related. Some 30 years ago, got a call from an Allard owner, with the Cad V-8 and dual Rochester carbs. He wanted them mechanically and cosmetically restored; but he wanted a guarantee that he would get his original carbs back, no exchange. At the time, we had been in business some 20 years, gave him references, and told him he had my word, but other than that, I didn't know how to guarantee that to his satisfaction. About a month later, received the carbs. When I turned the carbs upside down to remove the throttle bodies for disassembly, found he had used metal marking stamps, and stamped his initials in the underside of the bowls, CRACKING both bowls! Well, he got the same carbs back, in the same condition he sent them.....ruined! Guess he was afraid I was going to swap him some junk, so he created some junk! Would be my guess that anyone in business for a few years could give you enough stories such as that to fill a book! Jon.
