Is it Tom Widner from widner enterprises? Or LB enterprises? Or Widner Industries.... I’ve seen multiple names with some good and not so good reviews. I bought mine from him and did not have a problem.
BEWARE. My friend ordered from him. Took 4 months to get it and could not dispute the charges... This is what he advertises as the picture and this is what he sent him. Where are the tie bars for the carb studs!! $500 for this piece of ****.. It looks worse in person..They are on ebay all the time.
Man by the name of Tom Weber is / was the one making them. Tom is in MI.
Did not return his call or e-mail. Then when he tried the credit card route they said it too much time had passed to do anything about it. He did this, He sent it out and knew it. Picture says ALL one needs to know... My friend could have modified his original for about $30 and his time...Did he try contacting the seller to ask WTH is this about? Kind of hard to believe he wouldn't make such an obvious screw up good. But if not then I would be pissed too.
wow ok thank you for the heads upBEWARE. My friend ordered from him. Took 4 months to get it and could not dispute the charges... This is what he advertises as the picture and this is what he sent him. Where are the tie bars for the carb studs!! $500 for this piece of ****.. It looks worse in person..

No more to the story. My friend ordered the air cleaner base for the bigger carbs which is correct, after that your wrong. He said it will look just like the one in the picture. Does that LOOK like the one in the picture?? Not to mention it would be a few weeks turned into 4 months... When called/e-mailed The guy kept telling him this is not his full time job, busy with his real job, does these on the side etc.. Those are the facts make them suite your needs however you like. The one pictured looks like a very nice part the one received not so much...In his defense they don’t need the cross bars, looks like it was made for the big throat carbs. The top holds it in place anyway. My bet there’s more to the story than told.
The picture is a stock base, know what you’re looking at. What he wrote is what you got, didn’t say anything about cross bars just made in USA of steel. But to your buddy’s defense the guy should have had a picture of the one he sells. The bars are not needed, the dome holds the base-filter in place. Looks like he modified an existing base like I did for mine. For $489 I wouldn’t expect more than he got. Be nice.
Thanks Wayne.. Nice to see someone knows what went on...All I can say on this is if an FBBO member posted an air cleaner for sale with picture #1 shown and picture #2 arrived in the mail....the members here would make sure he never sold another item, let alone made another post.
It will look exactly like picture" Where does that say that in the eBay add? I must be over looking that. If he told your friend it was like the pic then the seller lied. Buyer beware. I’m NOT taking up for no one I like to hear both sides like in a court room.
This rings true.. So actually after looking at it, it's the right base pictured with the big carb openings. Here are the small AFB openings. Am I wrong??The picture is a stock base, know what you’re looking at.
