I also think that putting "no time wasters" puts people off bidding.
If the oil pump wasn't working, why was he running the engine so the tappets got noisy? Surely, if the oil pressure went to zero, he wouldn't have run it until it was fixed? It would seem common sense, even to me.
apart from the engine probably being shot, it looks a nice motor going by he pics. id love one of those, but cant afford the fuel bil never mind a replacement engine! besides, dont merc warranty the oil pump for life if its been MB serviced? i was told they did as theres no oil pressure warning guage or light on these cars?
