The temptation for another mini is too much I think ��

I'm offended that someone wanted an item I'm selling to be covered through paypal. :/ The mini community is fairly tight knit, and fell like they are saying I'll but the item, but I don't trust you. :(

    Yup, we've even had traders try to pull fast ones, so as a buyer its best to ensure your protected fully.

    What are you implying about the other guy? Maybe, like me, Minis make them poor and they can't stomach too much risk.

    I just think It's sad that there's no trust within the community anymore. More and more scammers out there willing to rip people off doesn't help the situation either. :(

    Yeah... They raised a Health and Safety "concern" at work, which was where I was able to play on the mini... not too sure what the next option is.

    If it has plenty of engine lube/oil when assembled and it is turned over regularly I don't see any problems.

    Not bad providing it was all lubricated properly on assembly, if you used engine oil in the bearings it will probably run down into the sump/gearbox in our case which is one of the arguments why thicker assembly lube is better. Just make sure before you start it you build oil pressure.
