This man is a liar and thief! I sent him a $10,000 dep for an engine and all he can do is run and hide. He doesn't answer his phone never returns VM and doesn't even show up for court. He owes ANY peple thousands of dollars that he has just taken and never built and engine for. If he donates money or an engine just remember is was done with money he has stolen from us. And this is who you entrust to represent your town!?!?

I sent Jon Barrett a total of $10,000 for an enging and trans combo over 4 years ago and still haven't recieved my order. I have left hundreds of messages on the bussiness voice mail and with John Cline. I have explained to John Cline what is going on and the only thing he can say is that he will have Jon Barrett call me. Jon Cline has told me several times that I am not the only one going through this.

I purchased an engine off of Jon Barrett as well. Engine was sent with missing parts that were promised to be sent and never were. I ended up purchasing the parts myself. Then, after about 10 miles on the engine four of the rocker arm studs broke off and bent one of the rods. I called about this and he said he'd send the parts right out and never did. It ended up costing me 600.00 to replace all of the studs and replace the rod. All in all it cost me around 1,000.00 more than it should have to get the engine running correctly. I think it's BULL S*** and I would not recommend purchasing an engine from him.

Update, This Piece of S**** 383 Blitz jon barrett engine broke down about 3 times since december. Cost me just as much to fix it as I paid for it. He filled the engine with the absolute cheapest parts he could put in it. all of which have failed. Jon barrett is a failure and scam artist and his engines are failures and piece of S***.

Yeah, my 383 also broke rocker studs on start up.
2 broke, and 2 were so loose you could lift them up to the lock and drop them them. Pulled apart as now I dont trust this "thing" at all.

here is what I got.
1pc rear with 2 pc adapt.
ALL USED HEAD BOLTS!!!
Dual style Pat heads with vortec holes left unplugged
Leaks vacuum like a siv.
Dist wont seal on weird no name intake.
Int balance on front, external on back.
Flat tappets (build sheet say roller)
sealed power pist(build sheet say Keith black)
pull crank... roasted bearings,
showing ALOT of copper.(least the were melling as per sheet)
crank looks used, journals all have bad finish and high spots on each, hence matching copper stripe bearings. Oiling was good, no heat marks.
HUGEST Fn burrs on "alleged line bore" I have ever seen
can salvage block and take 040 over... all most a total loss.
1200 miles on motor.
They wont return my calls or answer my emails.
8months old and 1200miles.. total rebuild required.

NO MATTER WHAT DO NOT BUY FROM THIS GUY. NO MATTER WHAT. USED crank and used head bolts?? ARE YOU KIDDING ME?!?!?
I was lucky I pulled the bottom when I did.
paid $2800 for saving $1000.

Pay the extra and get a Local speed shop to help you. Not this A** h*le Now I am one of MANY who wish they did. Yeah lots of fun pulling motor 3 times too! that alone would have been worth the thou I "tried" to save. No cruising for me this year. Dont DEAL with this guy even for a gasket.
mine came with the cheapest 350 gaskets possible by the way.. the only good thing about JB is they are far enough away to stop me from going over there.
Yeah, you'd see me on "COPS"

Am I understanding this correctly that the MAYOR of our small town of McLOUD has received money for engines that were never delivered? This is very disturbing to me in that he represents that he is a very successful businessman on the local, state, national and international levels. I am not familiar with the racing business so don't have much knowledge. However, this is disturbing since he is the mayor of your town. Any comments would be much appreciated.

Jon Barrett also recently filed bankruptcy in Pottowattomie County Court. So, all of the victims that had judgments granted against Jon Barrett, now will never see a dime.
It's so sad and disgusting at the same time, that this SLIMEBALL, SCUM BAG of the earth is the Mayor of McLoud. If only all McLoud citizens were aware of this...
Maybe someone should print up some flyers to pass out at the upcoming Blackberry Festival in McLoud letting all the citizens know what kind of a person he is and cite all of the lawsuits that were filed in Pott County Court???

This is very frustrating. He is being honored by the McLoud Historical Association during the Blackberry Festival. It is information that should be shared with the citizens of McLoud. He walks around like he owns the place and treats people horribly during public meetings of the city council. Thanks for the heads up information. I looked him up on Oklahoma Court Records. Simply unbelievable. What has kept him from being charged with criminal embezzlement or fraud? He should not be running the city council. Time for change.

JBHRE engines have a one year
warranty AND returned to JBHRE for evaluation .This warranty is standard in the industry and business world for that matter.
You must return the product to the manufacture.

Keith Black of Keith Black Racing engines said ,hi performance engines are only as "GOOD" as the customer you sell them to.

To everyone who made comments about Jon Barret, please know that the people of McLoud did not elect Jon Barret as our Mayor. Jon Barrett was appointed by the city council members of McLoud. The people/residents of McLoud are not given the opportunity to vote for the mayor because, according to City Codes, they set it up years ago for the council members to choose the mayor. They are supposedly looking at changing the codes where the people of McLoud can vote for the mayor. However, you can't trust anything the city manager, city clerk, city council or mayor says in this crooked town!

You gota be out of your mind I know several that this jooker built engines for and they blew up in a short time and used oil like a oil well one was a 396 that just needed freshed up and he put the wrong came bearing in and it runed the block of a number matching chevelle he is no better than the dude thats about this topic. By the way Jon Barrett is the Mayor of McLoud, Okla. that's where he lives him and that randp machine charater fat boy are partners in the engine building the good engine builder is Self brothers in Durant, Okla. you can pull them up on the internet and check them thru the OKLAHOMA better business and they have real references those other 2 guys ARE CROOKS BIG THME. Barrett has a real colorful magazine and it looks good but he will screw you like the other fat boy. BILLY BOB I THINK IS BOW UP ON NE 23 STREET AND HE IS A ASSHOLE BUDDY TO BOTH OF THESE SO CALL ENGINE BUILDERS. No one around Shawnee uses R&P machine or Barrett.

He has R&P machine to refurbish the car parts and gets those cheap kits from some parts hpuse in OKC and then slaps them together without the proper clearance and then he blames the owner for not driving the race engine correct nothing these two jerks do is their fault proven that one guy wasted his engine and about $3,000.00 and a number matching engine. I wish I could get the guy on here that that R&P fat boy screwed on his 383 stroker would never run right and no oil pressure he told me that fat boy told him it was the high volume oil pump he made him put in the engine that was the problem how about 5thousands clearance on ALL BEARINGS. He had it re done by BUDDY RICE SPPED SHOP AND IT RAN LIKE A TRUE STROKER AND THE FAT BOY NEVER BALANCED THE CRANK FOR IT SHOOK ALL THE TIME UNTIL BUDDY RICE RE-BUILT IT. He has some more stories that the fat boy did to him and has the engines and parts to prove what the FAT BOY DID so stay away from him also.
