Kick a man while he is down why don’t you??


Only joking mate


All coolant pipes, front aero mech and ECS ECU sold. Will get some more bits off for photos this evening


Some new prices and some new stuff.

Is the engine fully forged?what conrods,pistons crank etc


No, just a standard engine. New slightly oversize pistons from EE, then it’s a 4 bolt so will be a forged crank. Then it had the crank skimmed, flywheel skimmed, head skimmed, rebored, and valves lapped in at Chase engines. I think the machining work alone came to £1200 IIRC

Oh, it all got pressure tested too. Forgot that


And it’s ok posting my address, I don’t live there anymore!


Would you have the 6 speed gear knob?

And if so what’s the condition and price?

Ps can’t remember if I asked before.


I don’t think you have, but it’s a 5 speed I’m afraid


Not sure how much is on the engine James but as an example

I sold a 4bolt block with weisco Pistons , forged rods , new crank bearings and all machine work done for 1400 , that cost me a lot more to get it to that stage too ,


Yep, I’ve spent £3k+ on this engine if you add up all of the stuff on the bills. But how often are you going to find a freshly built engine with 16 miles on it?? I’ve had a reasonable amount of interest in it, so I’m hopeful

If I don’t get £2k for it I’m going to keep it until I can find one that needs a new engine, should make for some cheap motoring


Hi James,
Lots of money spent there!
What I want to know if you have forged conrods like cp and are pistons forged like wiseco. On the on the invoice it doesn’t say.
Are they oem pistons and conrods in the engine?


Yes, all standard. The conrods are the originals and the pistons are OEM spec aftermarket. So just a standard engine, nothing forged


Cheers James.
I would’ve be interested if it was fully forged as I was planning to rebuild mine.
Good luck you should sell it at that price it’s a bargain.


Cheers dude, hopefully someone else will realise that too!

Yeah, I thought that might be what you were after.


Hi James, the tailgate centre garnish has arrived, but…

The box was bent so I didn’t hold out too much hope for the contents, my suspicions were confirmed when I opened the bubble wrap.

Can you refund my money, you have my email address.

Shame as I was going to fly out there and fit it but am back to square one. :frowning_face:


Terry :sunglasses:


Damn, that really sucks. Thought I had packaged it ok :frowning:

Sorry Terry, I’ll refund you now. Gonna stop using Hermes I think


Vera said the guy walked into the drive and the box was being held level but the front bit dropped down. She thought it was funny 'till I showed her, she thought it was like a broken French stick (loaf) :sob:

Terry :sunglasses:


I’ve refunded you. Hopefully it will be with you before the 5-7 days that paypal have estimated. Might see if I can get any money back from Hermes


Give it a try, I have all the packaging here and the poorly item.
