Great guy to deal with. Absolutely no promblems. If you can not get ahold of him via phone email him. Thats the method I used when I bought my Friend engine from him.

Hi Ken is very good to deal with, you will have to try both numbers though, as he lives in Ontario Canada, but his shop is in Quebec,when phoning his shop he says to let it ring a long time as he is hard of hearing. I just recieved parts from him that I bought,he has a LOT of stuff.

Hi,

I also will say that Ken is a good man to deal with.

It looks like you'll get contact information from previous posts. If not, ask again and I will dig through my notes and find a number for you.

Good Luck,

Warren

Great guy. Spoke with him a week or so ago. He must be on vacation now since I couldn't reach him this past week.

I would suspect if he is not responding to either phone or email then he must be (as suggested) on vacation or something similar. You may have to wait, or if the add for the pulley is up again try responding directly to the ad. Having dealt with him I am certain there's nothing intentional or malicous going on. If its a mistake then you can be confident he will do what he can to make it right. When I purchased my engine from him (as alluded to in my other post) I bought it (I reside in Alberta Canada) and coordinated with him from here to have it deliverd to a 3rd party in Ottawa Ontario (My Folks place). I did some research on him before wading into this transaction and heard nothing but good things about him. I am pretty sure there must have been a mixup somewhere and once he gets your message he will work to make it right.

Why do you think it's the same pulley? With an inventory like Ken's it's probably one of a dozen he has. Never had any problems with him. Jason

The reason I think its the same pulley because it is a very rare hard to find clucth pulley the only one I seen for sale in 15 years. I now nothing of his inventory all I can tell you is how he is dealing with me and as far as being on vaction take care of business before you leave. I have try for more then two weeks to get a hold of Him I just want it resolved

I'm sorry if it's not my business to air, but it seems to me Ken had an incident that won't allow him to cross the border for a while.
It was posted on classified ads or the forum last fall sometime.

But as far as dealing with Ken I don't think he'd ever lead someone astray. He probably is on vacation.

I can try and contact him if you'd like.

Jonathan

Reason I asked is because I bought the other clutch pulley just like it that he sold just two weeks earlier. He's having it brought to Portland. I've had a half dozen of those clutches in the past couple years. They are scarce but I'm not quite sure they're rare. Jason
