Turbo D Estate F/S

Post by RobC »

I know of a turbo Diesel estate (think it's TZD) in Hackney (not mine) with a non functioning engine. Can't remember whether it's head gasket or timing belt, but one or the other. Has been parked up for a few years but before that was running well.

Last time I spoke to him, the owner said he was happy to let it go for the cost of scrap. Is that about £100 now? Anyway PM me if you want more info.

Price of scrap = £0.00 at the moment as it is on it's knees now with a worldwide scrap metal surplus , hence the announcement of the moth balling of Britain's biggest steel works yesterday.

Well anyway - if anyone's interested then get in touch and I'll tell you how to contact the owner. Didn't want to put the location on a public forum.

Thought the TZD turbo estates were fairly sought after, even if needing work?

Desirable yes, but with a busted engine its getting the thing moved (especially when they are sat on the deck with no brakes!).....and then you need another lump and someone to fit it.
Lots of Motors, mostly semi broken....

Found out some more details.

Grey G Reg TXD Turbo, 69,000 miles from new.

Broken camshaft but before this was 'running like a dream'. has been sat outside for a few years but semi-covered up.

He's been offered money from scrap merchants but would rather it went to someone who can get it back on the road.

What a great shame; no doubt due to failure to replace the cambelt. Probably knackered a piston or 2 as well.
