Hello Putt Putt.
I could write more but I'd probably be banned.

Cheers Scott

Hi Putt Putt, see you ave returned again.

Scrap value on the engines if they are not complete or running so at the $250.00 you said being half the asking price that is still way over the top of their value.
biggest problem for your sale is where you live, not as many buyers that far up the coast than if you were around the Capitol City, I too have the same issue when selling. So take what ever is offered and then they are gone.
