"There are no scratches"

Saw a Dragster 800R motor on ebay and asked seller why are there scratches on the clutch cover area, and why no pictures of motor on the clutch side. Sellers response "There are no scratches".
Attached one of the pictures where I put a circles on what look like scratches on motor to me.

The seller is correct. There are no scratches.

There are surface irregularities though.

Scratches: cancel or strike out (writing) with a pen or pencil. He didn't strike out anything on that picture so nothing scratched.

I would think those marks, based on location, probably are the result of rough handling during removal of the engine or after.

Pretty difficult for a crash to cause damage in those areas.

None-the-less, I would expect photos of all 4 sides of the engine.

FleaBay has rules if a seller lies.
""There are no scratches"."
So if it turns out there are scratches you would get a full refund including shipping cost.

If you have concerns you can contact FleaBay and they will let you know how it works.

From personal experience though, especially with a renegade seller, it can be a long and stressful process

Uh, yeah good luck in getting fleabay to go after the seller. aside from possibly shutting down the offender's account fleabay possess no leverage to make anyone do anything. it WILL be a long drawn out process that will result in even more frustration. rule of thumb in dealing with remote sellers, if seller is being uncooperative when it comes to presentation (pictures, detailed description, etc) just walk away.

after looking at the pics, I agree with Ed that it looks like the engine was being unprofessionally removed and perhaps reinstalled. maybe it was already sold once, installed and something was wrong. lots of red flags here, caveat emptor!

No scratches, however that thing did get into a fight with a chainsaw. Yikes.

Walk away my son, walk away.
