    Hello -

    I am very new to this forum and site. I had the very unfortunate experience of purchasing a campervan (1992 Fiat ducato swift 1.9 Turbo D) yesterday and the engine to blow up on the way home...! imagine how sick I was - the seller at first did not want to know..:Eeek:
    But now he is being very understanding, I think and has offered to pay half the expense.
    anyway - I do not want a legal battle - I just want the van fixed.
    If you know of anyone with a good engine at a good price, please let me know...

    Ireland/N Ireland

    Many Thanks

    There is a dealer I know of in Carmarthenshire , West Wales . They are called 3As. They have a web site 3A's Caravans .I have visited one of their sites and they have a shedfull of old px vans just rotting away in their yard . Might be worth a try .:thumb:

    Probably cheaper than you think, the last time I sent a pallet to the south it was £80, 5 day service.
