Someone really wants the gearbox from my blue vert, but if i remove it it will leave me with an engine to dispose of.

The engine has done 160k miles, but was stripped, cleaned and rebuilt in 2012 and has done 40k miles since then with no trouble. At the rebuild it had new chains and guides, sump cleaned and all the carbon taken off the insides of the crank case etc. Shells were inspected and were in very good condition, as were the bores. The block was painted too. Opening it up again now it is still really clean inside as it has been run on fully synth and changed every 6000 miles.

It will have a new (s/h) cylinder head with it, plus gaskets and valve stem seals as the original head has a broken stud extractor in one of the holes. I'm happy to fit this for someone prior to collection, with seals etc. It doesn't have a cam cover (unless i have one lying around in the garage somewhere), nor any anncilliaries.

Why is it free? Because I can't get the gearbox out to sell without taking the engine out as well, and as the engine on the 93 is mostly supported by gearbox. I cant get it back in afterwards.

Immediate collection from Portsmouth is not required, but I'd appreciate it if you didnt back-out once ive removed it out for you.
