WarWagon part two…

The parts I ordered for the WarWagon 'arrived' yesterday…

I found theĀ four foot by two foot box lying in the snow under the mailboxes at the end of the road leading to the house. Aparently actually driving the half-mile to the house was too much for FedEx. Then again, it is a dirt road and the truck might have gotten a bit of dirt on it…

So, yeah, FedAxe just shoved the 50 pound box out of the back of the truck at the end of the road – $600 worth of car parts just sitting there.

Fortunately I live up here where folks are of a slightly better cut of cloth and the box was still there 6 hours later.

But, to top off this story FedAxe still managed to mangle the carburetor that was in a box, inside of the box, wrapped in plastic, inside a form fitting plastic shipping mount. The G-forces applied to it were enough to shred the box it came in…

So now I have to decide if I want to send the carb back, where it will probably arrive as powder, or just attmpt to bend all of the linkages back in shape by hand and hope there's nothing wrong with the internals…
