I meant the 'room' that they are in is inside the back of a lorry, it has side rails and aluminium checker plate floor

Somebody has actually bid on it !!!!!!!

Are they that short of firewood in Cheltenham ?

If all the firewood looked that good i'd buy it. It looks as though there are servos in those wings too.I bought some junk at 99p .Turned out i had a 6 channel Rx and 7 working relays plus all the wiring harness. No bad with free PP

To be fair, the seller is giving a lot of information so there's no doubt about what he's selling, plus it couldn't be a lower starting price. For someone interested in unusual engines it would be worth a punt IMO.

I reckon he was using one of those "special" cameras that so many ebay sellers seem to use - the sort that give you a vague, washed-out, nearly-in-focus image that gives you a vague impression of what the goods look like without there being any risk of you seeing their true condition!

How refreshingly different is the set of images on the marine engine listing.
