Now then mate, I wouldn't bother with that to go into your frame. It may be ok for spares though.

Reason being it looks like it's been stored somewhere damp and that's not good internally. Especially if it has only been put together loosely and with a bit of the inside exposed. Secondly, the seller hasn't really given a sufficient description. He must know where it's been before hand so surly he would say if it's running or not.

These things are hard to tell so if I were you I'd give him a quick message asking where it's been before it was stored.

For that money you could bid on it, if you win and it doesn't work then at least you will have an engine there for a few spares.


Good luck :)

Like Dom said...Hmm

it doesn't say how many miles it has.

Just ask him some general questions like the mileage, if it runs.

+ thing though, it is very cheap, the spares would be handy if it all goes tits up.

Yeah but half of his spare parts are wedged in the front end of some blokes car LOL


I'd steer well clear from that engine mate. Might be alright for some spares i guess.

TBH you get what you pay for and for 25 for an engine, well............

16 hours to go with 1 bid. Could be interesting.
