Please read BEFORE posting a for sale or wanted ad

Due to the increase number of for sale and wanted threads appearing, the need for a few 'ground rules' has arisen.
  • Please begin your thread title with either 'FOR SALE' or 'WANTED' to avoid confusion.
  • Please state your location, even if this is available on your profile.
  • When selling, please indicate a price.
  • Where possible, please try to include pictures (this applies mostly to vehicles rather than parts) as it will improve your chances of a sale.
  • Try also posting your advert in the proper Classifieds section on the club website.
  • And finally, please post when your item has sold or you have found what you are looking for so we can close the thread to avoid unnecessary hassle.

Adverts not conforming to this structure may be locked without notice until the necessary changes are implemented to avoid the unnecessary clogging up of the forum with people repeatedly asking the same questions.

  • [Wanted] Diesel Radiator and Sump

    Hi all,

    after stripping my Countryman's engine to replace the head gasket, the radiator fell apart trying to remove it, so wondered if anyone has a good secondhand one they want to sell.

    Also, the sump is severely dented and oil is weeping out of a bodged repair around the drain plug so I want to replace this too if anyone has a spare...

    Thanks for reading.

    I'd look into getting the sump repaired as they are really rare! Those engines have ben cherished for years now so I doubt you will find many spares.

    The rad I'd buy new, most rads I see people selling 2nd hand are scrap.

    But you might get lucky.

      You do know that the radiator is the same as for a 2 litre Petrol Maestro/Monty?

      Here's some info / dimensions:

      Some that would have been OK came up on the ebay completed search for maestro rads for less than 40 new. If I needed the car back on the road and a rad for a 1.6L came up cheap I'd be tempted to fit it for the winter, and keep an eye out for a 2L rad.

        Thanks for your help countrydude and PhilBill, I will go for a new rad to be safe so keeping an eye out now, and the sump I shall remove and see what I can do to make the repairs a little more permanent and oil tight!

          I've got a non turbo diesel engine I'm stripping for parts, o can tale a look at it if it's compatible?

          Sure it was leak free?
