    well i had almost given up had had two scrap guys round to give me a price for the van when i got a pm on a another forum asking me if i wanted a complete engine ruining for my van i almost wet my shelf
    the storey go's he tried for seven months to get a gear box and in the end upgraded to the 2.8
    so he has a 2.5 engine sitting in his garage reddy to just put the gear box on and drop the engine in.

    it comes complete with brand new clutch alternator starter motor

    the tied has turned for us i hope

    as they say "into every life, a little rain must fall" but for you as with others it seems you have had a flood. keep going with the optimism of noah and things can only get better.

    sounds like youve hit the jackpot getting that engine, so you should be out in the van again by easter. good luck with the repairs and work bill, you deserve a break

    If it's not nuclear it ain't going to beat you.

    So steer clear of Sellafield.
