When You Get Your Order
Inspect the container and contents closely, saving all the original packaging. If you detect damage to your shipment, make a written note of the damage with the delivery person, because their company is responsible for those damages. If necessary, contact RPM for further instructions on making a claim.
If the order is short or defective, contact RPM for assistance and we will make every reasonable effort to correct the problem. The sooner we know about it, the better service we can give to have it corrected.
If you decide to refuse the shipment, the freight portion of the invoice is still your responsibility to pay, both ways.
We do not accept cores for credit on crankshafts or connecting rods or cylinder heads or anything else.
No returns on orders $50.00 or less. No returns on connecting rods. We do not give credit or refund for any freight charges for any type of return.
No returns on opened gasket sets or parts that have been installed including short blocks or crankshafts.
Before making any returns, call RPM for instructions. Any returns must have the original invoice number from RPM and if drop shipped, my warehouses invoice number also has to be with the shipment. Items are much easier to exchange, etc. if a copy of the receipt and the factory packaging is included. Custom or special ordered parts are generally non-returnable. All other returns for any refund are subject to a 20% re-stocking fee, plus any shipping charges including to re-box a shipment, both ways, and if drop shipped from one of my suppliers, plus shipping and re-boxing the shipment, back to them. RPM will help in every way possible to process defective returns, but the ultimate responsibility lies with the manufacturer. We will not accept any returns that have been installed, making them a used part, or dirty packaging with finger prints all over it or oil all over the box. Returns can not be accepted after 30 days from purchase date. If I do accept a return after 30 days then other charges will apply, usually another 10% totaling 30% off the original purchase price for credit to your card. Absolutely no returns for any reason after 60 days. But returns are generally not accepted after 30 days from the purchase date. Kits must be returned complete, no missing parts.
Crankshafts must be checked for journal size, snout length, number bolt holes at the flange on the back of the crankshaft, etc. to make sure they match your old crankshaft. If the crankshaft is installed and is the wrong crankshaft, then it can not be returned for any reason.

Warranty is not offered by RPM on any
parts. Any warranties are the responsibility
of the manufacturer. It is up to the installing mechanic to make
sure all parts fit properly to make sure they are the correct
parts and/or installed properly. If a part is installed and is
the wrong part or does not fit properly there is nothing we can
do to help you other than give you the warehouse or manufacturer's
number for you to get in touch with them yourself. We do not warranty
any engine, cylinder head, crankshaft kit, short block or any
other parts. If the manufacturer does accept your warranty claim
then it is up to them how it is handled. If for some reason they
accept your return and issue RPM credit then RPM will issue credit
back to your credit card only after they have given RPM credit
for a return. We do not give credit or refund for any freight
charges. We will not be responsible for any labor charges.
Crankshaft kits: if installed there is not warranty of any kind, either from RPM or the manufacturer. It is up to the installer to make sure all clearances are correct and all other things like brushing out the oil galleys in the block is done properly and all debris in the engine is cleaned including the oil pump pickup and oil pan.
