well i would say the postage was a good price as they are abit heavy. he says its been sat for 2 months so i would watch that but it might be genuine. i personally wouldnt pay no more than £60 as if there is something wroung with it then it could get expensive. full gearbox rebuilds are the best part of £400 for standard parts. i bought a engine and gear box for £120 of ebay 2 months ago and told it was sat for 6 months wot aload of bollocks that was more like 18 months. at the end of the day they aint to easy to come bye so take a risk with it if you need it.

im having to change engine and gearbox......snapped/shattered the mount thats welded to engine and gearbox, could get it rewelded but it would be weak and go again.
i have a new engine cost me £150, 60,000miles its been sat for roughly 3mouths, just need the gbox.
can get fitted weekend job for £200, which i think fairly reasonable.
i have reasearched other gboxes off net bout £200 with 30day gaurentee but only second hand, not reconditioned so i relly dont know wot i should go about doin?
regards

good price for your engine if its genuine miles, good price on putting gearbox and engine in for £200. i find a 30 day garantee aint worth the fuckin paper its written on, but if u buy the 1 off of ebay then you gatta take more of a risk if its gonna be any good with out a garantee. your have to take a risk i reckon mate....

up to you mate. there is another one on their for £80 but it depends how far it is from you. if you want it bad enough you would bid again. pay what you can afford on it thats all i can say bout it.

Ok the mount was at the bottom of the engine the holes where the mount goes in shattered off the engine block, same happened to the gearbox, i could have got them welded back on but cuz its cast steel it would have been weak and gone/broke again in a year or so, as for bein patient i had only drivin it for 2days, its been off the road for alittle under 1 month as for waiting months for parts couldnt wait just want it back on the road lol, money not an issue so it all good. i did inquire bout second hand gearboxes from24/7spares.com, roughly £300, got mine for £131, engine wid 60000miles £150 which i think/thought was cheap, fitted for £200,which is a very fair price. Very Happy
