thanks for your concern guys but as you said the authorities here in oz are just not interested
for me to follow up with international places would probably just cost me!
i put it on here more as a warning to the rest of you just in case he tries it again

So, jpp, are you going to send it or not?

Yes, I see you reregistered with a new name. Are you trying to gain trust to rip someone else off with a new name, or are you too embarrased by what you did to continue using your old name? IP checks don't lie. Not only that but the email you registered with is jpp@samicroloan.co.za

Sooooo, what is going on here? No REAL reply other than that?

This really ticks me off - I went to a lot of trouble to help JPP figure out his warm-up compensator problems.

On a more positiive note, there are three Holley 4360's for sale on ebay at present. Get one of those and a new-style base gasket, fiddle with the linkage, fuel line, and vacuum a bit and you're in business.

If you like, I can send you a copy of the install procedure.

Well, I can vouch for cth, bought a very nice rad from him online. If you actually want the NEW Solex, I'd get it from him. I guess you should ask where someone is from first. South Africa has a LOT of scammers! They even try scamming people on MySpace! (They tried to scam my friend who had an apartment for rent)

280S, some advice....

I'm in Queensland,I have had a running battle with the Plice here since 2000 when some low lifes stole the contents of a property I owned.The Police refused to investigate because the theives were related to a Police inspector....So I understand entirely how the Police here in OZ operate,one law for their Mates,and another law for the rest of us.
BUT,because JPP is in South Africa and I know some Mercedes Enthusiasts there...I got this address for you.Send off an email and make a Formal complaint.Fraud is Fraud and S.A's laws are similar to ours.Jpp is probably some pimple faced kid who steals money and thinks he's a smartarse because you can't reach him.
Go for it mate! you have 300 reasons to kick him up the jacksy!.
