I've unpacked it and checked it over, it turns over well, selects gear, and is generally quite clean. The air filters missing , and the prop and gear box is a bit tatty. But still attached to the rest of it, a couple of months ago he told me that DHL had broke the gear box off???????

I should be able to start it up tommorow, see how it goes.

Its a 2000 model?

Didn't look for any fittings for the filter... it was getting cold and dark.

Theres also a blue button on the fuel pump, anyone know what it does... couldn't find anything in the manual.

Manual prime at a guess. Is it in the middle and does it pump fuel if you prod it?

If he's thinking of taking legal advice I hope he takes into account the fact that he's been blocked from trading on ebay several times.

Libel is defamation in writing and slander is generally verbal communication,
