Anybody dealt with this guy on ebay? Or through

Hey guys,

I think I'm just being paranoid, but here's the deal. Couple weeks ago I was going through ebay looking for heads for my stroker. I found this guy who's selling dart IE heads cheap (obviously a machine shop guy who buys the bare heads and assembles them to make a buck). So I email him because the heads I want aren't on ebay (72cc chambers, not the 64cc). He says: yeah I can sell those to you, give me a call, we just don't do the 72's on ebay, not enough people buy them for us to run the auctions. Fair enough, I call the guy, lay down like 8 bills for heads with Manley valves, guideplates and arp studs and he says that he has to get them from dart, he should be getting a whole slew of them next week. Fine.

Anyway, that was on the 18th of may, and its been more than a couple of weeks now. He indicated that I'd (probably) have my heads by now and that UPS would send me a tracking number, I haven't heard anything.

Emailed him friday, no response.
Emailed him again today, waiting.

I went through his track-record on Ebay and its really good. He has about 6000+ responses, a few negatives about damaged parts and slow or no communication (probably what I'm experiencing).

Should I be worried or am I just jumping the gun on this? I figure if I don't hear anything by beginning or middle of next week I'm going to start getting upset and doing something.

What do y'all think? Think his name on Ebay is dirttrackkm. Guy's name is Nathan. Seemed cool on the phone...
