I'm trying to help out a good friend who blew up the Vortec 8100 engine
in his speedboat which he keeps in Mallorca.
He needs con rods, which can only be bought through Volvo
, and you can imagine what they cost.
After a very long and difficult search, I finally found a set of used ones in a speed shop in San Diego
, on Ruffner Street.
Unfortunately the owner is not willing to haul the rods to the Post Office to ship them, and the PO is the only economical way to do it (UPS and Fedex want like $800). They will need to go into probably two flat rate boxes.
So I'm looking for a cruiser in the area with a bit of spare time who would be willing to pick them up and mail them for me. I'll fill out the forms and pay for the shipping
online, and I'll pay you for your time -- $50?
You'll be helping me do a good deed helping out a really good guy.
