Complaint Review: Eric Gorr Forward Motion Racing - Madison Wisconsin
Eric Gorr Forward Motion Racing Forward Motion Description of work did not match what I paid for, very poor quality control. Madison, Wisconsin
Below in bold is what I paid for, I sent my assembled cylinder away and recieved another one in return. What I recieved was cracked and only partially welded. It says the package deal includes powervalve service, mine was taken out, modified, but put back in dirty.
I had to take it back apart to clean it because it didn't move due to the carbon build up. When doing this I found that a $1.80 seal was reused, it was dried up and didn't even fit tightly any more.
It may not seem like a big deal to some people but this was very time sensitive, I needed the parts to get this together to give as a gift. I had to use it, the crack leaks, the seal leaks.
This guy changes his story every time I talk to him, he will not even let me buy my old cylinder back. It was in far better condition than the one he sent me.
Here is the powervalve mechanism right out of the box http://i12.photobucket.com/albums/a220/1975xbody/IMG_0008.jpg
Here is the powervalve slide. http://i12.photobucket.com/albums/a220/1975xbody/IMG_0013.jpg
The crack that was not on my part.
Not fully welded, it leaks at this crack.
Crack close up.
The dried up $1.80 seal taken out of my cylinder.
Seal should be a tight fit in the cylinder, but it just falls out of it's bore.
