Default Bill Lopoulos: Active or Inactive?

Has anyone received an order from Bill Lopoulos, lately? I made an order before Thanksgiving and then one two weeks ago and haven't heard anything or received the orders. When I call him on the phone, he takes my credit card numbers and then nothing happens. The credit card is not billed.

He advertises on Enginads but I wonder if he is still active.

Thanks.

Sometimes it takes time for Bill to get back with you. I think Bill has a full time job and does magneto repairs as a side job.

Yes I think Bill has a full timer job + as well. He is a very busy man. Although he is a nice person, I've ordered parts twice from him and the first time he shorted me but promptly took care of me. The second time I ordered from him he took more than a month, I sold the engine, as is and called and said I don't need the parts now. A few days later, here comes the parts, minus a $10.00 part. I threw his card out, with no intentions of using his services anymore.

Although He is a very intelligent person on engines, even has some odd upright Maytags, and is a pleasure to talk with, I would say if you are going to keep the engine and don't need the part til next season possibly, he's your man. If he could be more accurate and quicker, I would go back to him.
