I don't believe there was a CPE check list. Just an engine in box, and recipt. Hot rod shop has done engine installs. Before this is a common practice for them.I know, I said I was done. You need to get a bit clever as to how you ask questions etc... you have an invoice, does it show where they changed oil, primed/checked oil pressure as CPE suggest on their shipping policy, did you give them the CPE info, was it packed in the crate/box, Did the shop even do any of the things on CPE's check list. Did you advise them of it? If they were not advised of the check list then they were flying solo on the whole deal!
