Hi Johnydog,
Thanks for your reply. My car was owned by a member known as ‘Tadge44’. I think you have had correspondence with him. It was a fairly honest sale and the work that he did on the car, to his credit, is very good. There are a few little things that I will attend to but after that and a tune up she will be in fine fettle as the saying goes. With regard to the VIN it looks as though this is correct on the V5 but the engine no. is not. I am unsure if this is the original engine no. (Its MM035707HEA) I think it may have originally been an Auto. I have yet to check the gearbox and final drive numbers. The engine he has fitted is from a PI according to the book. I will probably have to alter this on the V5.
With regard to the 2000 engine it looks like it’s from an early Mk2 2000 (Engine no. ME17292HE) I’m not sure what other info may be on it but if you think I should be displaying any other info please let me know. The former owner assures me the engine was in good working order, just the wrong one! I could probably deliver it in my van depending on what I can get for it but I would need a lift off with by 2 strong young people as I will not be able to lift it on my own.
Thanks again for you advice.
