    I went out to look at some parts with my bro in law today. This guy has tons of Chevy stuff lying around I mean tons. Found a complete 454 engine, asked the guy how much 50 bucks, done deal. I told him I would be down tommorow with my pickup to get it. He said just pay me when you take it, I said cool. So my bro in law calls me up about 45 min later and says to me "since I found this guy I should have first dibs on that motor". Now mind you I have given yes given him several hundred dollars worth of parts over a couple of years because I figure you help family out right. So I tell him that I already struck a deal with the guy. WTF? Once again he said well you would have never known about the place without me, which is true. He never said a word when I struck the deal with the owner, It was only after I left they went and looked at it again and he decided he wanted it.

    So tommorow I am going to stick with my plan go down there and buy the engine. Do you guys think I should let him have it?

    I think you should give your BIL first dibs. He did in fact show you the place, by rights its his. Heck you should pay half on the motor for him since he found the place anyway.

    I may not have too. I told my wife (his sister) and I think she may kill him for me.

    Your BIL showed you the place, let you make the deal (probably speaking on your BILs behalf), he didnt try and belittle you in front of the owner (very considerate BIL you have). Besides, its the season of giving:wink1:

    Your BIL is a dick. I hate focking people like that.

    If he knew the guy first maybe he should have gone by himself,and struck the deal.He's just jealous that you got it.

    Motor is yours,Congrat's on the good score! :haha:

    Well just as I ifgured he may do he went and told the guy I didn't want it and gave him the money for it. He went and got it tonight. All the parts and help that I have given him in the past mean nothing I guess, its all about looking out for no. 1. Man I am so pissed off. And yes I did spot the motor first. It had a 454 badge on it or else he wouldn't have even known what it was. He had just looked at the motor and hadn't even given it a second glance till I pointed out it was a 454 and I was looking for one. oh well

    Hey fellow Idahoan,
    As a former East Coast resident, we would tell someone like that to politely,
    " Go stick it in your a$$, stop milking the family you parasite!"
