paid $2100 to a local shop (ReVolks) to build me a super reliable daily driver 
motor for my squareback.  They failed to inform me that the case was total junk 
and built the motor anyway.  The engine went 10 miles and spun a bearing.  Upon 
dissasembly, I discovered many problems.  The work was beyond bad.  The oil 
pickup tube was not attached, mismatched old spark plugs, missing peices found 
elsewhere in the engine compartment, hacked incorrect gaskets, missing teeth on 
the "new" cam gear, broken cam bearing saddle, etc.  Jeff Hamilton at the shop 
blames me for abusing a motor he built only ten miles ago.  My lawyer said I 
didn't have good enough documentation to go to court.  So I am rebuilding it 
myself.  I had the crank turned with new bearings and rods, but no case.  I now 
have everything to go inside.  The cranks bearings I have are for a case align 
bored 1mm.  Oh yeah I also bought the car
 through this shop and saw them forging the Bill of Sale.  Yes I was stupid and 
ignorant for trusting them. Sorry it turned into a rant.   Thanks.
