Richards Machine Shop
I spent over $3000.00 on an engine rebuild at this shop and found out not only did they overcharge me on many parts, but also they did a really bad job on the rebuild. When I confronted the owner with the problem I am having with the engine now, it seemed he tried to turn the tables and make it look like something that I did to create the problem. The engine has almost no miles on it and sounds like something is broke inside and making a hard tapping noise. In the very beginning and in first talking with the owner of this shop he sounded like he would do a great job on the rebuild and I would have no problems afterwards, but if there are any he would take care of them; that is obviously not the case. I now need to look for someone who can fix whatever he did not do or broke inside during the build, since it now seems he does not do warranty work on his own work and seems to have blown it off, all this after I paid him in full. On a separate issue I thought it was odd he insisted that I pay for all the work done and for the parts in cash. Later someone mentioned that some people do this so they do not have to report it to the IRS through their business account, which I do not know if this is the case here or not, I just thought it was odd. Either way I will never bring another engine to this shop again, this was a costly mistake for me and obviously to others.
