When you performed the Autopsy were you able to determine the Cause of death?
What is your opinion of the motor?

This overestimation occurs as a result of the fact that they do not have enough knowledge to know they don't have enough knowledge.
Before you argue with someone ask yourself, "Is this person mentally mature enough to grasp the concept of a different perspective?" If not there is no point to argue.

my freind didnt question what he was told about the car because...
Your friend has my sincere sympathy, but when buying a machine it can fail at anytime, especially when it's being stressed in a racing situation. I assume there was no implied warranty. If he hasn't already complained to the seller I believe I would ask him when the engine was originally built. This might give some validity to the bearing dates, opposed to just old stock. A primary cause of small business failures is insufficient funding to float the initial endeavor. Which is to say racing and "scraping" may not be mutually exclusive. I have compensated a buyer for unknown faulty equipment that I, as the seller, was not aware of at the time of sale. Hopefully your friend can negotiate an equitable solution.
