He mis-represented it.
I would never resell something based solely on the PO's word or description.
IDK, just my .02
I wouldn't pin it on DMC, I have done business with him myself, and he is a stand up guy. IMO Scooter is handling this properly. He owned up to his end, and dug down to the root of the problem.
Scooter good luck with the build. IIRC machine work on my SBC was around $600 a couple years ago from Reichert Racing. I didn't specify and they built it a little loose though, I think I would run a little tighter tolerances if I did it again.
