Right, i've got a 2001 1.8 TS sportwagon in Alfa red, i've stripped it and the rest needs to go soon, so does anyone need a good 1.8 engine or any bodypanels/doors which are in VGC etc before it gets weighed in. I have access to a garage/workshop and can remove engine with buyers help
Cheers Richard, i can always tow the shell to you with my A frame and help strip it with you it would be a shame as the engine is spot on
Its just economics, mate - the engine weighs less than 2cwt - so is worth about £10 - £14 over the scale if you weigh it in - its got to be worth more than that intact - even a head and a sump would fetch £150 plus - it just depends how you value your time
The engines don't sell anywhere near as well now as they did - a couple of years ago everyone I got would sell immediately for £400+ - now I've got a few sat around - its just a reflection of the depressed value of the cars, of course - which is why you've scrapped the 'Wagon, I guess.
