1115 for sale at decent money
« on: June 12, 2018, 12:42:29 PM »
I dont generally post Ebay links here because everyone looks there but this one was hidden from my normal saved searches. Pretty decent price for a 1115 but wont ship an d too far away from me. I had a 195 of that brand ona factory 10KW set and the engine was a very nice runner.

I was considering buying that too....until I noticed in the 2nd picture that it doesn't have a cylinder head >:(

I took the same $600.00 and bought 2 Farymann 43F diesels that I had found on Ebay; that price included shipping. Both engines appear to be complete except for air filters and mufflers and one engine will not turn. These days that's par for the course with me; so no worries.
I figure worse case scenario I will get 1 running and have 1 for parts. But me that more than likely I will get both running. I was looking for a deal on one of those for a very long time ;D

I contacted the seller and asked him if the engine he is selling is complete or not (this is the last of 3 that he had); he says he will send more pictures tomorrow. I will let you guys know if he sends them.

I contacted the seller and was advised that they are complete engines ( I noticed the pic with the bare head bolts and pointed that out to the seller).  He has 2 identical listings one for $599 pick up and one for $799 free shipping.  I just bought one of the free shipping units.  I'll post something when it arrives.

Yeah, just got to love that " free Shipping" on the same thing that costs $200 more!

In actual fact, it can work to your favour. If you have to get refunded on something, they don't have to refund the shipping. If the shipping was free, then they have to refund the whole amount you paid.

Still a con in most cases though.

Went to buy something on Tuesday.  Place is literally 10 min from me. Said I'll pick it up. No has to be sent, $60. Pigs arse! Not paying $60 for something that will take $1.50 worth of fuel and 15 Min of my time.  Nope, can't come to the warehouse. Really? Then how come returns can be made in person?
I passed.

know exactly where you are coming from, I just ordered $2000 dollars worth of treated timber from my local building supplier. Cheeky b*stards wanted to charge me for delivery. I hung up on them. Guess what they called me back to arrange free delivery. What a surprise!

New photos are posted on Ebay and show a complete engine.  Here's a copy of the message I got from the seller:

"We just updated the photos in our listing. It is complete diesel engine. Since they are old stock, we are not quiet sure how it will work as engine, so we suggest to use them for parts. Or you could try to add oil and run it and may need to change some parts. The retail price for a brand new engine is over $2,000."

May be selling as parts to get around EPA fine potential?  PayPal payment went to JINMAAMERCA which I believe is a pretty big outfit -- Jinma tractors & equipment.  Hopefully it won't be a complete POS.

I'd buy one, probably 2, at that price in a heart beat if it weren't for the fact Of US sellers Fking people over and insulting their intelligence with delivery.
Probably want $5K to send the things to Oz on the slowest boat ever built.

I can get a brick sent from Canada for $5. To send a matchbox from the US they would want to charge $50.

Hey Glort, I share your frustration with postal/delivery charges. I ordered some bits and pieces ten days ago, both with $10 delivery. Guess what, the bits from the UK arrived today having travelled half way around the world by airmail. I am still waiting for the bits from Queensland which is only a four hour drive away.
Go figure,
Bob
