Road didn't do that nor make it any worse I would think. something has been hit at speed while under way IMHO a while ago.

If you can't send it back then I would ask davie on here for a quote to fix it and go from there, he may have a used mid section to soften the blow. At the very minimum I would be wanting 500 back. Worst case you sell the gearbox and power head and chalk it up.

thanks,

I've seen someone on ebay stripping the same model and have asked if they have that section of the leg available. Is Davie based in Central Scotland?

Sorry, tayport is right...my bad.

Do not buy anything until you speak to him and do some checks.

As i said, I think that has hit something so gearbox may be compromised, i.e bent prop shaft etc. The motor will need to be gone over with a fine tooth comb to make sure you end up with a usable motor after doing this. Don't assume the rest is okay, check it. Compression, corrosion, electrics , gearbox runout etc

If you are handy with spanners and do the work yourself it is probably worth fixing depending on the price of the mid section. You will also need gaskets for head and may as well change the mounts at same time so probably worth you factor those in along with normal service items.
