Are you commited to looking for the Rottler brand ?
Or would other brands work for you ?

Depending on how big of a hurry you're in to get one, eBay has what they call "Want It Now" ads where you can enter what you're looking for instead of what you're selling.

If someone sees your listing and has one setting in the shed that they don't use anymore, they contact you about it just the same as if you clicked on the "ask seller a question" in an auction listing.

If you opened up your search to other brands and models, you'd have better luck finding something. You may get a single offer in 6 months, or you may have 20 people contact you the first week, but beware of scammers.... check out their feedback rating in detail, ask a lot of questions, if it's close enough go look at it in person before buying, and if it's far away but the price is right, complete the transaction through eBay (like them or not) incase there are any problems.

If you don't like eBay, as quite a few people on here don't, then hopefully your asking about it on here will generate some offers for one, but again I would suggest openning up the search to more brands than just Rottler.

Without going out to the garage and uncovering it, I don't remember what brand mine is..... I bought it roughly 17-18 years ago and haven't looked at it for at least 12 years other than sliding it out of the way a couple months ago and covering it up again, but for the time being, it isn't for sale yet. Too many engines laying around that I may need it for a couple of them yet.
