Dan Brosman - Any recent experiences with him?

Has anyone had any recent dealing with Dan Brosman of Scottsdale AZ lately? He has an engine he is building that I am interested in but it would be great to get some recent feedback from the community. Of course I would make the purchase with PayPal to provide some protection as the engine would need to be shipped to me. Please only provide relevant and personal feedback, not speculation.

Thanks,
Seth

I just sent him a whole bunch of 914-6 parts for a conversion. Talked with him on the phone for a while.. His client raved about him and he was very knowledgeable and pleasent to speak with.

Was forever selling a 911 motor off Samba and had a friend go look at it. The SN had been ground off. At the time, I don't believe that was disclosed on the Samba add. This was a few years ago. Not sure if this the same motor.

I have an experience from about 20 years ago. I bought a "rebuilt" 915 transmission from him and he delivered it to my house. I installed it and it sounded like he left a screw driver inside. He asked me to ship it back and he would take care of it, so I did. He decided that it would be OK to just never send the transmission back and stopped returning my calls. I filed a small claims case but since he was located in Arizona they wouldn't hear the case, even though the deal was transacted at my house in CA. I tried for more than a year and even sent someone from AZ to his shop, but I never got my transmission and never saw a dime or my money.

This didn't occur to me personally but I recall many years back he had a very unsavory reputation on EBay like constant negatives .
I cannot recal wether it occurred on Pelican or EBay but he reportedly resold the same engine more than once or some such scam where no one actually ended up with said engine , yeah pretty
good scam ..haha
