At least you got your money. I sold most of my Ford Tractor stuff in November, much of it and a lot more tools and stuff to a guy who I thought was pretty decent. He drove a long way, even made two trips. I let him have some stuff on credit and said he could send me check later so he wouldn't have to make another trip. Numerous emails, txt msgs, and calls have gone unanswered. We often see posts especially from new guys asking for advice/help/part suppliers or with a problem and never hear back from them. Most will at least acknowledge the advice with a thank you or better yet a follow-up to see if they resolved their problem. I'm am not looking for a thank you and/or pat on the butt, realize a lot of guys just can't communicate well. The posts serves two purposes. First, immediate fresh info is seen by all, secondly, it gets saved in the archives so if someone later on wants to know the same problem, the old posts will come up within the archives. I wouldn't take it personally. Bob has always had numerous fires going, teaching HS and tractor restoring, amongst others, so he doesn't spend much time on the Internet.
