valve seal issue
ok so my head has been at the machine shop for about a week now with the only thing holding me up is valve stem seals. when we went to replace them the shop bought fel pro seals but he said the supertech springs dont sit on them right and that i would need to get a new set of stock ones. well i went to crate engine depot and was about to order them and decided to check if anyone else sold them for cheaper since the stock ones are like 60 bucks for all 16. well i went to zzp and ended up buying viton valve seals since they were only 20 bucks and they said they would work. well when i bought them i added a note on what i would be using them for. when they were shipped zzp wrote on the shipping paper that the ones on there site wont work for the dual valve spring kit but they sent me the ones that would. low and behold they sent me the exact same ones that are listed on there site same product number and everything. so i bring them to the machine shop and the guy said these are the same as the fel pro's and wont work and he shows me why. the felpro's and viton's are basically missing the hole lower half of the seal were part of the spring rests on and he showed me that it would just float around if i diddnt have the stock ones. so i went to my local dealer and shelled out the money for the stock ones and everything is back on schedule. well i email zzp about this and they said that its not there fault they sent me the right ones and said that the ones i ordered arnt even on there site(which they are i have the part number and pics to prove it) they then went onto to say that these should work and its my machine shops fault. basically this dude henry over there that emailed was a complete jackass(mind u i didnt send the happiest of emails to them since i was kinda upset over this issue) and told me i would not be refunded my shipping and that it was my machine shops fault. What im wondering is if this is my machine shops fault or is zzp just being a dumbass by sending me the wrong shit and now wont fess up for it. any and all help is appreciated.
