    Sorry...possibly a daft question....just thinking aloud! Lets just say my 430 engine went bang and i had to get another engine has anyone got any idea how much a 2nd hand one is likely to cost?

    any ideas?????????

    I have a idea:lol:...probably a bad one but would be nice to have a bit of info so i can either put a tick on the idea or dismiss it:lol:

    Hi Paul,
    I have my old C43 engine sat in my carport at the moment, I would normally expect them to go for between £400-£600.
    Whats your idea?
