When a fairly new member like yourself posts with so much unwarranted sarcasm and anger towards another poster, you can't help but wonder..

OHD was all over a guy in another thread that had some poor machine work done and was unhappy.
He seems to think everyone but him does any research before they buy anything. Too bad really, since this is a site that is supposed to be here to help others and not chastise them for mistakes.
Perhaps the issue here is a customer that cannot be satisfied but maybe it is poor product. Let the product supplier fight his battles for himself.

And just a thought....

50 bucks an hour to disassemble, hot coat, and reassemble would be about 6 hours labor.

thats a 300 dollar difference. Sounds like they are just doing business.
No flow test....I don't imagine they did either. They supply a card with penciled in numbers of jet sizes, air bleeds sizes, power valve sizes, shooter sizes. Guess what when open up the carb and go through everything and talk to the Proform tech dep't. it's all just a Proform carb. Nothing is modified and custom configured to your combo. I sell lots of Proform products and quite familiar with the guts and workmanship. The so called hot coat.....not. Should not be thumb prints in it.
Bottom line they are NOT custom configuring anything other than a paint job.
I can't see why you would be defending them unless your...........

NOW it's all clear now why you are against my informative post so bad. You're actually in bed with Mr. Bigs, no punn intended. As far as the two carbs yes they were sent both to my shop. As far as you say my buddy appologizing for my actions. He would have had to do what ever he had to do to satisfy the Bigs Boys to make his order right because the carb was not a match for his combo either (like the 4.5 power valve)plug instead, jets, accel. pump, pump cams, etc.
They have never got back to me to make anything right or even respond to anything. I don't really care either. Just letting other people know and beware.
They talk the talk ........................then they get your money.
The power of the internet.
Cheers OHD.
Bernie

#1- the 1st guy forced parts into a block with out measuring them and broke additional parts....duh...Then never returned after bashing AND wanting the PART SUPPLIER TO FIX/PAY FOR HIS SCREWUPS..

AS TO THIS THREAD: Bigs Carbs supplies good service/parts and IF I take the time to reply to a "basher" of a vendor I have personal knowledge about the "PERCEIVED problem'. Do YOU, when you post?

This guy "trailer", never answers direct questions or post pictures. GEE I WONDER WHY.....

If the bashing is just meant as an feeble attempt to affect the guys business or reputation, I QUESTION THE "BASHER" POSTS, HIS SIDE WILL OR WILL NOT COME OUT, IT ALWAYS DOES, THEN LET THE OTHERS MAKE THEIR OWN JUDGEMENT...

What do you want me to post pictures of?? What unanswered direct questions?? I think I explained quite clearly. Read my first post fully. You are the one that puts everyone out to be the bad guy. I don't understand you too well. I could place all my bets on you...............I think you have some sort of attention deficit disorder. You should get it checked out.

I have a few questions - hopefully you can answer them - I'll number them so you can reply directly:

1. When you received the product with flaws in the bowls (fingerprint and scratch marks) - did you call the seller, politely explain there was a problem with the bowls, and ask politely if they could send you a new set?

2. How does the carb perform on your engine?

3. If you are a big resaler of Proform carbs and know the in's and out's of them why wouldn't you use a Proform to begin with?

Thanks for your time.

Again I have said before there is absolutely nothing wrong with Proform. However we were led to believe that we were getting carbs from these Bigs Guys custom configured to our combo's.............I did call to talk to them about my disappointment and Jesse's partner (which could be OHD) was in complete denial on what I had to say. Actually quite rude for being such a high caliber business
I understand some people are happy with them. However they are likely unaware of what they are really getting. Nothing custom built for your combo.
The Proform carb would do the same because that's exactly what you are getting. My car has quite a motor in it. It's a full tube chassis race car. My cam doesn't even make any vacc. to accomodate a power valve. So what are they actually doing? Nothing. They ask all the question to make it appear they know what they are doing and you are getting a custom configured carb. I'm not out to get any compensation from these clowns just want others to know what's actually happening and be aware. There are REAL carb builders out there.
That's my beef.

(1)Yes called. Partner is idiot. No I don't want any more crap from them.
(2)Doesn't.
(3)My combo needs a better carb than the off the shelf Proform. Proform one would be fine for a milder combo.

Hope this helps.

Thanks for answering my questions.

Sounds like a good item to chalk up as a learning experience, throw up on Ebay, and buy what you need from someone else that you trust.

Good luck.

I am not defending just wondering if you have any hard evidence that the carb is not better than a standard proform.

Just think of it like I am the voice of the other 500 people who didn't have a problem with paying an extra 300 bucks for something that looks custom and performs just like it is supposed to.

I feel bad that you feel like you got screwed but instead of tearing off stickers in a rage you should have just sent it back and asked for a refund. That is how America works...if you have legitimate problems with something you purchased then you get your money back or you get something that works.

Why would you buy a custom carb off of ebay anyways?

WOW does this ever get escalated out of proportion.
(1)The clowns state it is non returnable because it is custom made to your specs.
(2)I never bought it off E-Bay, I don't know who said I did. I purchased/ordered direct from them over the phone.
(3)The 500 other satisfied people you talk about I am glad for them. There is no reason the carbs they got shouldn't work on their mild motors.
That's fine but that off the shelf, blinged up and painted carb does not work on my race motor. Reason being because they do nothing to the carbs other than paint the main body and bowls.
That's the difference in getting a carb custom configured to your combo...................The Bigs guys do absolutely nothing other than lead you to believe they are custom carb builders.
Bottom line they are not advertising as custom painted Proform carbs. They advertise custom built carbs to your combo.
THAT'S THE WHOLE PROBLEM.
I'm not out to bad mouth or try get something for nothing.
They are not supplying what they are advertising.
Plain and simple.
