The engine was picked up by the freight carrier on Wednesday last week.

And it is currently still sitting at the original terminal. I called yesterday (9.27) and they told me it was leaving the terminal heading for Chicago on 9.23. Ummmm what? After convincing the person on the phone that the date was impossible since it was 9.27, she called the terminal to inquire about it. She said no one answered. So she couldn't help me.

This whole deal has been beyond a joke every step of the way.

But it's a whole one step closer to being back in your hands!

Exactly. I wasn't going to post anything until I had it in my hands. I didn't want to jinx it. No jinx needed for a continued cluterfuck lol


Dude logistics is still all fucked everywhere and these companies have no fucking idea which way is up and where their asshole is located their body. You think they are going to tell you with any accuracy where your shit
is?

Ya, I know. I deal with freight carriers every day. LTL has not been bad at all. Some carriers are better than others. But overall, LTL has been good for us.

No containers are a completely different story. They can't get trucks, drivers, chassis, etc. So they sit in yards for weeks before they hit the railway. Then they get to Chicago and it's the same issue. They give you only like 3 days free to unload the container. They get it off the train and start the clock. Well, they are so backed up it takes days for them to let the carrier in to get it. Then you have the carriers not able to get it because they don't have trucks, chassis, drivers, etc. I think the last 5 containers we paid storage fees for 7-8 days. And of course, the rail yard and local hauler are happy to decline any assistance in absorbing any of those fees. Straight up joke.

Here is a reminder for you all. Here is a pic of all the o-rings, gaskets, and soft hoses from when I sealed it up when I bought the car. Some of those bags have 4-20 o-rings in them. And it uses them all. And this doesn't include any hard lines or upgraded hard coolant tubes. haha

So

Many

Things
