New to newsgroups and haven'tr figured out how to post pictures yet - I'll learn !
I have been offered a twin cylinder vertical McLaren Diesel Engine and have never seen one in SE Magazine or other sources, so need help..
I know very little about these especially the value ! The person selling it has been told that it is rare - I would agree since I have never seen one before, but he doesn't know the value either. I am not trying to get it for nothing but want to reach a deal that is fair to both of us. The person selling has told me that he paid a little under £150 for it, so I need some guidance as to what is a sensible price.
The engine is a twin cylinder vertical ( Can't find a model No anywhere ) and is complete except for the air inlet filter etc and the silencer ( The finned exhaust manifold casting is still there ). There are a few external pipes which are damaged. The engine is seized - but I suspect that it is a minor problem since it has been stored inside all of it's life. a lot of the original paint is still there so, for restoration I think it would be a case of wiping with an oily rag !
I can revisit and take some photographs if helpful. - If I can work out how to post them !!
Hope someone out there can help
