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) Please DO NOT post links to your ebay auctions. 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 people posting items for sale are "Active Members of this community". 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.

11) Members posting items for sale MUST include a rough location in their profile.

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.

970 short block

Post by EAVB »

Afternoon,

Just having a bit of a clear out and I'm probably never going to use this. It's a 970 short block, consisting of an AEG312 that has been decked to suit a 970 (AEG330) crank and rods.

The bores are +40 and in very good condition. The pistons are the correct flat tops and look to have had very little use (it's all covered in 20 year old grease!

From memory the crank is 20/30 or vise versa, the taper is in good condition.

I'm in Cornwall but work near Bournemouth Monday to Friday so collection from either location works for me.

Not really sure on prices these days but I'd think 900 pounds sounds about right.

Thanks for looking.

As far as I know, they are 970 rods, I can probably measure the block to check, I have an AEG151 somewhere for comparison.

Just fyi, I have measured the block (super scientifically, with a tape measure) and it is the same as an unmolested AEG151 so I would assume it has the correct 970 rods, unless someone who knows more tells me otherwise.

Another check is to measure the deck height when the pistons are at TDC.

Evening Dermott,

I have just taken one out to check (been asked by a couple of people now) and they are longer centre to centre than a 1071 rod so, yes they are 970 rods.
