BEWARE: nameless guy in Ohio
This is just an interesting "fairy tale". Once upon a time the was a guy in Ohio who treated another nameless guy very poorly on some kind of transaction. The guy who was treated poorly kept quiet for a long time. Then the guy who did the "raw deal" got called out on some internet forum somewhere (not THIS one). The guy who allegedly kept some property that did not belong to him contacted the moderator of said forum and got the "public accounting" removed.
Beware of "nameless guy".
Any similarity of this tale to actual events or actual people is completely coincidental. No animals were harmed in the creation of this posting.

So TMD, did the nameless good guy ever get his transmission back. Or is the nameless bad guy still playing games. Best, Mark

Transmission? I NEVER said transmissions. Nameless guy in Ohio did send something that may be of value. Further investigation will be required. We have been delayed here in NC by heavy weather.

Got some time to tear down the "someting of value" this AM. Has been stored outdoors for an extended period with no weather protection, carb had no air filter, was open to the elements.
Valve train was heavily rusted. Had to "heat and beat" all the cylinders off. Crank case contents heavily corroded, crank hard to turn even with the pistons removed.
Really sad as it was a fairly low mileage "RIMCO" rebuild before it was left out in the rain.

Got some more time to split the case this Friday PM. This is absolutely NOT RIMCO's work.
The engine had been assembled with no bearing crush. Apparently a sloppy line bore job. It looks like this engine never ran after assembly. Maybe the "builder" chickened out on his "chicken shat" job?
