    Hi All, I just had a simular experience. A "max" from Texas ( maxtx2} replied to my wanted post. He said his PayPal was dormant & I had to pay by money gram, and after requesting photos of parts he said that he tried & they came back undeliverable! I replied that I wanted the parts, but would not transfer any funds until I had some verification of identity and photos. Surprise, surprise! no reply Value of transaction would have been approx.$500 Australian.
  3. I have just had the same experience I posted a wanted add for a warner t83 input shaft, and within the hour I received a reply from "MAX" ( maxtx2) claiming he had NOS shaft,$200 delivered. I asked if he could send me a photo, and after a second request for photo and where he lived. he said they came back as undeliverable?? and that he was in Texas, and wanted to be paid by money gram as his PayPal was dormant. I asked if he had needle roller bearings for gearbox and an oil pump for a Hupmobile W. He replied he had, and the total was $400 delivered. Alarm bells started to ringing. I sent him an email stating I would not transfer any funds until I had verified ID and photos of parts Surprise I have not had a reply. I checked the AACA membership and he joined about 40 minutes after my add was posted! I am not sure if I should state his Email address

I was determined to get the steering wheel of without damaging it copious amount of spraying tapping etc. even made up a puller. ended up taking box, column and wheel of together, to work on the bench.

Radiator badges, bonnet emblem ( waterfall/ zeppelin ) bonnet stay arms, accelerator pedal, door lock mechanism.door key lock.Headlight lenses. i may have some hub caps to spare. I received the photos re the gauges , but with the shipping costs and converting amp and fuel gauge (12 v/ positive earth) is a bit expensive. Any chance you could lower the price? regards, Ken
