Selling up?

Post by barry badger »

Just throwing this out there,
I have developed an illness which at best means i wont be able to work as a mechanic any more and at worst ..............
I get my results on new years eve. So basically i will be selling most/all of my bxs and spares, not after much for it all really because i could end up having to dump a lot of it due to lack of storage. So large things that need a home:-

Bx 4x4 estate H reg white, slight piston knock on cold mornings, valve stems leaking, diff lock doesnt work (internal fault with transfer box but oil clean, has been like this for a long time) , nsr driveshaft has play in it, slight rust to roof, surface rust only to nsf pillar, numerous dinks and dents but still looks very presentable, can supply spare transfer box(was bought as good, splines good) spare d2e engine bought from bob bishop (would recommend stripping it before use but he told me it was good, 147,000 miles) also have spare gearbox with good splines but has been running with nut on 5th gear loose. Can put 12 months mot on it, despite list above was in full time use before i took it off the road for the winter. Recently spent 7 days under back arches replacing pink sealer, deox gelling any rust and undersealing/ waxoyling with an awful lot of dintrol. Stored indoors.

Bx tzd K reg silver, slight 'clack' from engine, took it off the road a couple of years ago because clutch is worn and its a bit smokey, could be a piston (but no excessive breathing and no oil consumption) or a loose combustion chamber. I swapped its front spheres to go on my txd, so the front ones are flat and its developed an lhm leak since its been stood (indoors). Laquer is peeling from roof badly and tailgate is cracked. Abs warning lamp is on intermittently. Doesn't need any welding.

Numerous spares collected over the last 25 years.

Have only put these on just to see if there is any interest, tzd is probably only worth a couple of hundred pounds but if anyone has a rotten one with a good engine then this one is perfect.

Hi Barry

Sorry to hear that mate, you have to put yourself first, I have dodged the bullet with redundancy recently and had to think long and hard about the cars future, finding the right home, thankfully all worked out ok but who knows where we will end up next year!

I am sure someone would be interested in them.

The 4x4 will sell with 12 months mot.

Any idea of price

Good luck with the results! [-o<

Can I copy this over to the Facebook page to get more interest?

Really sorry to hear of your illness.
With regard to the tzd is it a hatch or estate? Where abouts in the UK are you?

Both are estates, the 4x4 i had a figure of about £1000 in mind given its problems.
