Hi there,

bit of a strange one, my freind bought a second hand crank off a reputable specialist breaker for the ford cosworth marque. My friend then stored the crankshaft for 3 months until he had the time and all the other bits to finish the engine build off. The crankshaft was inspected by a tusted proffessional engineering workshop, who explained that the crank was bent and would need regrinding, and hence no longer be of use to my friend who needs a standard grind crank. The seller is refusing a refund or replacement due to the fact that it has been too long, and he says the warranty period is out, and it might have been used and/or damaged since he sold it But surley it has not been sold as described? . where do we stand legally after 4 months?

Unfortunatly you left it too long, you should have checked it at the time , it was a used crank , different if it had been new.


and by the way this is not correct


crank was bent and would need regrinding

it is either bent or has scored journals both can be repaired

as for regrind........when a crank is cast it is then ground when new . if it needs to go one size down it's not a problem....however if it is on the last regrind it would need metal sprayed. but generally it would go in the bin..how much did he pay for it? I don't want to know just ask yourselves ...if you think it was cheap ....it was
