How long do you call "a while" ?

It's also on other forums and eBay(for more) so not sure how long it will be available.

Bearing now sold.

.It can stay where it is for couple of weeks if I get full payment or at least a £50 deposit?

Or are you waiting for payday?

I'm curious whats wrong with the PG again?
[/quote]

It's been stood in my garage without being turned over for at least 8 years so will need a rebuild....hence spares or repair.

As I said...[b]It's been stood in my garage[u] without[/u] [u]being[/u] [u]turned[/u] over for at least 8 years so will need a rebuild....hence[/b] [u][b]spares[/b][/u] or [u][b]repair[/b][/u].

I only remembered I'd still got it when I moved some other stuff at the back of the garage and saw it sat there....along with a brand new Subaru Legacy gearbox that's still in it's crate that I'd also forgot about, :blink:
I didn't manualy crank the engine over....hence it's not been turned over for at least 8 years.

I do hope you're not expecting a PG engine for 85 quid that's been stood in the back of a garage for 8 years that you can just drop straight into a car and it will run....if so I'm afraid you've set your sights a bit on the high side.

The engine is for[b] spares[/b] or [b]repair[/b] and will need a rebuild before it can be used again.

Hope that's clear enough?.

No problems Steve I was interested in pistons and rods ([b]spares[/b]) TBF if its been kept out of moisture oil still in the sump I would expect some [b]manual crank[/b] is possible, then the pistons not siezed and bores not rusted (That was my point of clarity I wanted, after all a socket on the crank and turning it over takes five minutes.
My sights are always too high ;)

It's not within touching distance yet as there's a bit of stuff to clear in front of it or I would have taken the 5 minutes you say it takes to try cranking it

How much are G60 conrods and pistons these days...more than 85 quid?
And a PG cylinder head,block,inlet manifold,exhaust manifold costs how much these days?

In fact the more I think about it I may as well just pull it to bits and sell everything seperately.....
