|1. THE CONTRACT BETWEEN US
|We must receive payment of the whole of the price for the goods before your order can be accepted. Once payment has been received by us we will confirm that your order has been accepted. Our acceptance of your order brings into existence a legally binding contract between us. We have two telephone lines and e-mail, specifically for your use. If they are busy we apologise, but it simply means that someone, as well as yourself, requires parts or technical advice.
|2. PAYMENT TERMS
|Almost any parts that you require are available on a Mail Order basis and we accept any sort of payment – provided it is money – except Diner’s Club and American Express. Credit Card payments incur an additional charge of 2% of the total invoice value and are not refundable. PayPal payments incur an additional charge of 5% of the total invoice value and are not refundable. Please note that if you are outside the UK, payment must be made by direct transfer to our bank account or by PayPal. All incoming payment charges must be paid by the customer.
|3. DELIVERY CHARGES
|Delivery charges vary according to their destination and cannot be refunded. You will be informed of your particular charge to cover packaging, insurance and transportation to your country of residence when placing your order and it will be stated on your invoice. Please be aware that you are responsible for any local Customs/Import duties, taxes, surcharges or brokerage fees which may be applicable once the parcel arrives at its destination.
|Any parts ordered on a mail order basis will be despatched within 24 hours of receipt of order and clearance of payment.
All consignments are insured and should arrive safely within the allotted delivery time. If when you unpack your goods, damage is apparent or goods appear to be missing, you must inform us immediately by telephone or e-mail and confirm in writing within seven days. No claims for loss or damage will be accepted for compensation unless we are informed within 48 hours of the goods arriving and the claim made in the above manner.
5. ONLINE SELLING CANCELLATION RIGHTS
|1. Under the Distance Selling Regulations you have the legal right to cancel your order within seven days of receipt of your goods (with the exception of any made to order items). You do not need to give us any reason for cancelling your contract nor will you have to pay any penalty. However, you will need to notify us in writing i.e. letter or email, if you wish to cancel your contract.
|2. You cannot cancel your contract if the goods you have ordered have been custom-made to your individual specifications.
|3. If you have received the goods before you cancel your contract then [unless, under clause 13.2, for which you do not have a right to cancel] you must send the goods back to our contact address at your own cost and risk as soon as possible. If you cancel your contract but we have already processed the goods for delivery you must not unpack the goods when they are received by you and you must send the goods back to us at our contact address at your own cost and risk as soon as possible.
|4. You have a statutory duty to take reasonable care of the goods while they are in your possession.
|5. Once you have notified us that you are cancelling your contract, any sum debited to us from your credit card will be re-credited to your account as soon as possible and in any event within 30 days of your order.
|6. You will be re-credited for the costs incurred in returning faulty or unsatisfactory goods.
|Where outputs are quoted for our engines or our kits, they have been obtained
on a closed cell and run with one of
our own exhaust systems. Other exhaust manifolds and systems are available
for use, but we cannot guarantee the power outputs when used with anything
other than our own products. When we deliver a new engine it will be delivered
run-in and with a Dyno sheet showing the torque and power figures obtained.
Note that when you install a tested, certified engine in a car, the linkages
have their effect; when you consider the tyres, wheel bearings, gearbox,
air temperature - to name but a few - the power output will decrease by
15 - 28% on the road. This decrease is normal and without rebuilding large
parts of your existing power train cannot be prevented.
YOUR OWN ENGINE
|When building your own engines from our kits you will need a donor engine
of good quality. It would be true to say that mileage does not have a very
great bearing on the engine providing that it is in good condition and that
it has been looked after. We would always recommend that you strip the engine
completely, washing and cleaning every bit before you begin assembly. Apart
from the kits, we also supply all the gaskets that you will require as well
as assembly pastes and lubricants, particularly useful with cams where high
pressure is experienced immediately the assembly is complete. We cannot
stress too highly that absolute cleanliness is essential to a good job.
