ok,

this has worked enough.

I'm ready to put my money to buy a dodgy engine so that w can track a dodgy dealer.

I'm up for 3k.

I'll pay on the understanding that we'll chase.

Anyone?

Ebay response to enq-
"The engine is in Middlesbrough and for my asking price, nationwide delivery can be arranged. Please message me with your Email address if you would like more pics and I'll happily forward them through or you can reply me to: techinotom@hotmail.co.uk"

Of course its s scam. I would never consider buying any items off ebay of this type without speaking to the seller first. If you drop them a message asking for a phone number so you can discuss the item and they dont respond or refuse then dont bid is my policy.

I think it looks moderately genuine(everyone has to start somewhere on ebay!). I'd bid to win if it's what you want, and simply go up there and pick it up in person and pay cash. Very unlikely that a dodgy seller will agree to that if he doesn't actually have an engine to sell (states collection in person as a delivery method on that listing).

Middlesbrough isn't a million miles from Lynch's but i'd have thought there were nearer dealers.

try for extra pics...

You could just ask why the pics were taken at Lynch's if the engine's at middlesbrough!

As we all suspected it was a total scam- Phil Lynch e mailed to say fraudulent and he had tried to get it off e bay, and he NEVER uses ebay to sell his kit, so worth remembering if another one come ons

Just spotted this thread. I'm about an hour away from Middlesbrough (Ripon) if there's anything up this way in the future I'm more than happy to have a nosy !
