    Is this right? Dude buying a car is getting ripped off!!

    So a guy walks into someone's workshop today asking about a dummy blower kit for a Rover V8.
    He then explains that he has a 4 71 on his pop and he has sold the car.
    He wants to keep his blower for another project and pass the dummy blower off as a real one because the buyer hasn't got a clue mechanically. !!!!!!!!!!!!

    Now I don't know about you but this is a low sneaky move. I may be sticking my nose in but this buyer was each one of us at some point in the past.

    Anyone know of a Rover powered pop with a 4/71 that's recently been sold?

    It's not just the blower, what else has been changed, swapped or taken off. This kind of back handed dealing after a handshake annoys the **** out of me.

    Oh & it's also being shared out like a $10.oo hooker on f/b club pages too so hopefully the guy will see it and ask a few questions.

    I am really surprised that he is telling everyone what he is doing, whichever way you look at this ie morally/legally etc it is wrong

    He asked a very respected member of the Rodding community & a friend for their help in this deceit which was refused on the spot. The person told another who told another who .... Now it's up to us to make sure a new Hot Rodder isn't bent over dry. **** I'd love to hear the excuses on this one.

    they say what goes around, personally i think its a dirty trick, iv heard about diffs being swopped from posi to open, i sold my burb last year, the guy wanted a electric fuel pump, i bought him what i considered to be the best and more than up to the job, i can speak to the buyer and have done since and his more than happy with his new toy which is how it should be

    Sounds like a clear case of fraud.

    More interested in finding the buyer and warning him but find the car we got the seller (I'm sure there are a few pops with a 4/71 as I can think of two but they are accounted for).
