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

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

Anthony30I 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. :(

Vinay-RSYeah... 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.

MoT: Shortie Passed :-)
quick question... i know its not good for an engine to sit but how bad is it for a freshly rebuilt one to sit?
GreaseMonkeyIf it has plenty of engine lube/oil when assembled and it is turned over regularly I don't see any problems.

RooBoonixNot 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.
