I just had that happen with a head gasket.  It was stuffed in a box and broken in several places.   I couldn't believe somebody packed it like that.  Lucky for me too, they were good about a quick refund.

Pistons showed up, one with a broken skirt... Fuckin' eBay...

That was broken before they were mailed. I hate eBay sellers who do that shit, probably closed account as soon as the cash was sent?
Should have read replies, great to hear they sorted things out for you.

Yeah, I checked out the eBay ad where you bought them (search on "Sold listings") and if you look really really close at the picture you can see the one was broken, though it looks like they tried to turn it at an angle so it would be hard to see.  I think you're probably lucky they worked with you.  (Speaking of eBay and GS850 pistons, somebody has a set of four of them on there right now sitting at $29, great deal for a couple of the other 360 owners on here!)

Any way, carry on and get that thing built!

They accept returns and exchanges and the listing wording was for a usable piston.  They really should've accepted the return or exchange.  I did admit that I never saw the pic with the damage.  You had to scroll way down, which I didn't do (stupid on my part). 

I'm mailing out the jugs tomorrow.   ;D
