    You're not going to use this engine for your 205?

    $2500-$3000 about right?
    Regards,

    Cam,

    I've been watching your postings regarding this car over the past couple of days & been waiting for someone to mention this; If this engine has not been run in 12 months, could I suggest you take a real good close look at the cambelt before starting it up particularly if the belt was getting close to being ready for a change, there were any oil leaks in say the tappet cover or camshaft seals where oil may have found its way into the cover area or if the water pump's a bit sus.
    The reason being that the belt will have sat in the one position for so long that it will have formed into the shape of the items it passes over & will begin to flex immediately on start up and if perished or cracked, can potentially fail at those spots.
    Ask any appliance technician how many clothes dryer belts do exactly this after a dry spell. A few years ago it was claimed approx 23,500 belts failed on Simpson dryers in one week following a prolonged dry spell for exactly that reason.
    Thought mentioning it may prevent a possible interstate sale ending up in a fight or in tears. I went to see a GS a couple of years ago where exactly that happened.

    If it ain't broke, use a 12" shifter.....that usually does the trick!!
