I purchased a 10-71 mooneyham blower (built by wrightway blower service) off ebay on Jan 29, 2011. The ad said new billet end plates, new teflon strips, new bearings and seal and new anodizing. Listed in good condition.
In August after finally assembling my motor and putting it in the boat I realized that my mooneyham billet carb adapter would not bolt to the blower! The holes were 1/16 off in every direction. Then I realized the anodizing on the top of the blower was covering up the welding on the case to make it a standard opening blower!
The ebay ad did not say the blower had inserts, and it did not say the case had been welded!
I should have filled a complaint to ebay right then. But being a nice guy I did not want to put a bad mark on WrightWays ebay account.
I called the shop and told Greg Wright that I had to drill a KUHL carb adapter and only use the outside 4 bolt to get my boat on the lake. I then had to change my carb linkage, and could not use my billet are cleaner assebly because the KUHL adapter spacing is different.
I asked for the top of my blower to be fixed at the end of the season. Greg agreed to fix it.
After spending $160 to ship it there and back, $250 new stripping (after only 6 hours of use there was 2 inch strip missing) Wright way blower service assured me my blower was fixed.
Let me ask all of you....DOES THIS BLOWER LOOK FIXED?????
The threads in the front right hole only go 180 degrees around the hole. The top of the case near the middle insert is cheese graded with a die grinder and was covered with black silicon!!!
On top of all this my carb adapter still does not fit!
I called Wright Way blower service to complain and requested a full refund for the blower and I was told no way. Greg Wright told me to ship it back down there so he could weld all the holes and redrill but that I would have to pay for labor and reanodizing the blower!!!! If this was your blower would you send it back?
