Yes, 2nd hand engine is what I am looking at. I hope to cannibalise the old engine for anything missing off the new one - except for gaskets and fluids. It had a new alternator, belt and tensioner bearings in June. I'll get them swapped over. Hopefully I can keep the whole job under 800 quid.
Selling old engine parts on ebay is a not an option because of shipping from overseas and I don't have the facilities to strip it down. I will just scrap what's left of the old engine a few weeks after the swap, once I'm happy the car's running OK.
