Default lovepurple03 - anyone got any experience of him?

Has anyone used lovepurple03 on eBay?
I spoke to him and he sounds like he knows what he is talking about and his feed back on eBay is good but that's only from selling small parts.
Has anyone bought an engine from him? (or had any work done)
Does anyone have anything positive or negative to say about him?
Thanks

Read his negative feedback,only one but it is related to the engines he "has" for sale. I would be wary,unless you are close enough to go round and check it over beforehand.Don't see how it can be built for that money,unless he is doing it for free !!!!!!

I've been to his workshop to pick up a carb he restored, genuine guy and builds. Yes his ebay 'buy it now' is not as it seems as he only uses it for advertising and doesn't have engines laying around...he builds them to your spec. I've not had an engine from him but he had 15 builds lined up. From 1600 to 1776's

"Endfloat will be set at TDC"

That's not something an experienced engine builder would say.
