Forum rules
For Sale Section Rules

PLEASE NOTE! Postings in this section are deleted automatically after they have not been looked at for 30 days.

1) This section is for advertising items that you have for sale. Not for the discussion of listed items. If you wish to debate the pro's & Con's of any item listed, please start a new topic in the appropriate section.

2) If you have items for sale on ebay, please post them in the appropriate section. This section is NOT for the advertisement of your ebay auctions.

3) If you have a number of items to sell, post them in a single ad marked "Multiple Parts" or similar. DO NOT post many individual advertisements as this forces everyone else's listings down the page.

4) It is expected that any items advertised on the forum are described fairly & honestly. It is the duty of the seller to ensure that this is the case.

5) Items listed for sale should WHEREVER POSSIBLE* be offered with a purchase price, not asking for bids from members. If you wish to auction your item to the highest bidder I would suggest you use ebay & pay the associated fees.

6) This section is offered as a free service to enthusiasts. Any deals made are between the buyer & seller only. The MK1 forum takes no part in any transaction & the appearance of any item in this section is not a recommendation. I strongly suggest that both buyers & sellers are happy to proceed with a deal before any money or goods change hands.

7) It expected that members contribute something to the forum before posting for sale advertisements. Any Adverts placed by members with a post count lower than 5 will be deleted.

8) The advertising of or soliciting for VIN tags, log books or any other vehicle identification documentation without it's associated vehicle is expressly forbidden. Any member breaking this rule will have his membership terminated with immediate effect.

9) If a moderator considers any postings in this section to violate either the spirit or word of these simple requests the MK1 Forum reserves the right to delete any posts without prior warning or explanation.

10) The posting of items for sale on the MK1 forum constitutes explicit acceptance of these simple rules.

It would be much appreciated if sellers could leave the sale price on adverts after the item has been sold. This acts as a good measure of current value for other sellers.

* In some cases it may not be possible for the seller to list items with a sale price. In this case, listings will be reviewed on a case by case basis by a moderator. The moderators decision will be final.

MG 1100 Engine - complete

Post by Jono »

I bought this engine from Supersonic off the forum in 2016 intending it for my son's Mini project but it's stood in the garage ever since. It's a complete engine including 3 synchro magic wand box and a very nice looking 295 head.

I understand it came from a low mileage MG 1100 but had been used in a Moke for the previous 25 years. I think the bores are standard (see photos) though on inspection (just this evening) the centre main bearing shows some scoring so a regrind would be advisable. Other than that it all looks very good and would go back together and make a nice road engine.

The crank nose is perfect and the primary and drop gears are all there together with the clutch and flywheel and housings. Pretty much everything apart from the dizzy, starter and carbs.

The 1st gear on the box is showing some wear but I guess that's to be expected on a non synchro 1st. As I understand it a 'low' diff is fitted - 4:1?

I paid £310 for this back in 2016 and it cost me £132 to have it shipped from Norn Iron, therefore my outlay is £442. Would it be too much to expect £475 for the complete package.

Please PM if interested - engine in Cumbria

Feel free to make what you consider to be a fair offer as, despite my outlay, not sure what this is worth.

.....also looking for Mk1 parts so may be interested in a trade

If anyone is interested I would accept £400 for the complete unit (before I split it and put the bits on Ebay).

Cheers
