That first one was mine...

It didn't sell.

Shame, that means I get to keep it  ;D

Now all I have to do is find a way to move it...  :o
Cheers!

Well.... it was a boat engine (or, rather, it had been put in a boat - it was originally a searchlight engine from WW2)...

So, first, build a boat?  :D

As far as JP engines selling cheap, there is an inverse price relationship concerning these engine in the UK. JP2 (and to a much lesser extent JP3) engines sell for silly money, as the canal boat fraternity are always looking to buy industrial engines for marinisation. Invariably JP4 engines sell for little more than scrap metal money prices, and usually get broken up for spares.
