Sounds like he needs some training in customer services it's not all about fixing gearboxes when running a business :?

I am assuming he thought that he`d already rebuilt a gearbox for you and that you we`re calling to report a problem with it... Doesn`t that lovely aftersales service just fill you with confidence 8O

Tim, give Sam at Rancho a call. Absolute top bloke, quality proven products, and the best aftersales service I`ve ever encountered anywhere!

Baffles me why anybody buys from the UK anymore. Does anyone out there like paying double? :cry: Buy from the States and get twice as many bits for your money :wink: Or just the bits you want at half the price :roll:

Not only the bits.

I've always found US customer services to be outstanding. British ones tend to adopt a very laissez-faire attitude and, quite frankly are sh1t3.

Not used them but I've only heard good stuff too.

I will be using them if my box turns out to be a lump of poo. :wink:

Bears are in Wolverhampton I think.

My mate is having his box rebuilt by them at the moment.

If everything seems under control, you're just not going fast enough.
