Wanted - An Engine.....any engine!..and a gearbox

Post by M60NJP » 29 Jun 2013, 09:33

A weird post this one!

I'm after an engine to clean up and paint a little, to form part of a display. So, the engine doesn't need to work (can therefore be completely seized, HG gone etc etc) but would ideally like block, head, rocker cover(s) plus inlet/exhaust mani at the barest minimum. FI/Carbs etc would be handy but don't need any electricals, transmission etc.

Although a huge BMW 6.0 V12 would be amusing, a smaller engine would actually be better - motorbike, small car etc etc (not a lawn mower though!!). I'm in Buckinghamshire and only have a car (boot) to collect so distance and dimensions are relevant! To be honest, I'm after a freebie or something very cheap as it doesn't need to work ever again!

Ditto a gearbox - don't need the bellhousing (but do need the shift) but if it's attached - so be it! As above, doesn't need to work...

I'll visit my local scrappie etc if no-one has anything!!

Many thanks

there is a scrappie near me Neal who is VERY REASONABLE on prices, and im sure can negotiate with you as I know he just piles the cars up in his yard...

for example, a friend of mine paid £30 for a full door including door card, speakers, window glass & motors, wing mirror and casings :-) (not a bad deal)

i could see if i can chat to him if you want?

Thanks Jamie - but it has to be a freebie and pretty much complete......so a challenge for your negotiating skills!!

Might have a dead 1.2 Vauxhall engine in my possession soon.
