<!-- s:wink: --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_wink.gif" alt=":wink:" title="Wink" /><!-- s:wink: --> Was surfing ebay on the vintage champion h10 spark plugs and found these 2 beer bottle plugs... Had no choice but to purchase both of them.... :DThe last set of new H 10 plugs went for nearly $800.00 for a set of 8.... So I think I got a deal on these 2. http://www.ebay.com/itm/322215075779?_t ... EBIDX%3AIT

Well I received my new H10 plugs today.... <!-- s:evil: --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_evil.gif" alt=":evil:" title="Evil or Very Mad" /><!-- s:evil: --> They are sure as hell not new plugs... But the seller sure listed them as new. Plan to contact the seller and see what they will do now. I do plan to keep them. They are well worn but useable for a show or judging. Just not happy being told one thing and getting another. I believe in honesty first.

I bought a set of 1/2" number punches through Ebay that appeared to be the same font as used on the 810 Cord chassis or frame number.I intended to re-stamp the numbers and make them stand out The punch set arrived and turned out to be 1/4" size numbers with 1/2" square shafts. I complained and was told the set was described correctly. I contacted Ebay and they agreed the set had not been advertised correctly. I was given a full refund. The system works !
Cheers,

The system does work, but you had to send them back, didn't you?

The bitterness of poor quality remains long after the sweetness of low price is forgotten.
Be of Good Cheer

To my surprise I didn't have to send them back. The postage was more than the value of the articles. Initially I paid $15.00 for the punches and $30.00 for them to be sent from the US to Australia.
I received a refund of $45.00 plus the punches get to stay in Australia. That was Ebay's ruling.
It was the first time I had any problems with using Ebay.

Seller contacted me and offered a refund if I sent back the plugs. I had explained a used plug was better than no plug and was planning to keep them. My message to the seller was more allowing them the knowledge these WERE NOT new and it was mostly educational in intent. Yes.. I was not happy purchasing used when it CLEARLY said new. Lesson learned. My feedback with be positive but my comments with be harsh. I don't want to ruin a seller record if in fact they could not tell the difference between new and used. If this was a con I wont know it but will watch any future buys from this seller just the same..
