Divine Aircraft & Engine Problems (Pirep)
DEVINE, TEXAS -- I had my airplane engine overhauled and my interior redone at this shop in Divine Texas. I have had numerous problems arise from the work. IE: Important engine components not reinstalled; Alternator almost fell off, had to be redone locally; Rear seat foam not replaced (as per the shop's written proposal); Door frames not repainted (as per shop's written proposal); New exhaust pipes probe installed such that it makes that spark plug removal impossible; Oil pressure sensor broken by shop, and replaced with a set screw; Engine timing improperly set;
The owner of the shop, [name removed] did pay for half of the timing reset cost ($200.), but has ignored repeated attempts to rectify/resolve any of the other issues. I have sent him photographic documentation of my claims. I cannot even get the courtesy of a reply. I paid over $21000 for the work. And in excess of $3000 to have problems resolved here locally. All work carried a warranty for workmanship/materials for one year. Plane is based in SoCal. I have copies of all correspondence and pictures regarding this matter.
