What would you do with it though? If it has never been used would you just whack it on and get it dirty?

Tidy it may be, but it's still a 1970s engine. Again, probably suit someone who is a bit of a collector themselves, or wants to go for a retro 'Jacques Cousteau' look with their Zodiac or Avon.

Sounds a little suspicious to me as it is described as both short and long shaft. Surely this is not tooo dificult, even for a nincompoop like me, to figure out. I would stay well clear.

also looks dodgy to me, it looks like a photo of a photo, surely if you were selling it as a collectors engine you would take multiple pics to show off how wonderfull it is.

He does have good feedback tho!!

That's what I thought. Spelling is attrocious too (typical Ebay ad), but if it was such a desirable item - surely a bit of history would help it sell.
