    In more transmission news.... I sold a TH400/203 in core condition for 200 bucks last July. I delivered it, and he didn't have cash at the time so I let him slide and said pay me whenever. It is now nearly January and I have stayed in contact but have not received a dime yet, which is ok because I understand how people get in a bind and have money issues.

    I feel like a jerk every time I ask "Do you have the money yet?" I wonder how long I should wait until I'm legally allowed to become a real jerk?

    Hmmmm. $200 isn't a WHOLE lot of money to come up with. Sounds like this guy is hoping you'll just forget about it. I think I may have to start buying parts from you. J/K

    You say you have stayed in contact. If he was a stand up guy, he would have stayed in contact.

    Oh yeah, you don't have to be a jerk just yet, but I'd start turning up the heat a bit. Get him to tell you when he thinks he'll get you the money.

    Well, I don't think he's trying to screw anyone over. Putting it off maybe... but hey, even I do that alot. Maybe I'll get paid someday. I wish I hadn't even messed with getting that 400/203 either. Wouldn't have made anything, delivered it for free and didn't even get paid to break even yet anyway. But I thought I was helping another 4x4 guy out by holding it for him when he first showed interest and wanted to buy it, and then bringing it to him when I could have sold it to others.

    Hmmm, I sent a message a couple days ago and no response, though online activity shows he was on yesterday. Wonder what's up. Maybe I was wrong in being trusting.

    It was someone in a well-known enough position that I figured I could trust him. I could go around and explain this story on other sites and make him look bad, but I don't want to do that. Theres still a chance he just didn't see my latest pm. I'll give more time.
