    S3 APY Engine

    Looking for a S3 APY engine after mine decided to lunch it's crankshaft bearings. Ideally need bare block with cylinder head and possibly oil pump (suspected cause of the problem).

    Happy to arrange courier if not local.

    Yep, there's one for sale but is in my opinion strong money (especially considering mileage) compared to what I've seen them go on ebay for - I forgot to bid on 2-3 on my watch list a while back and there's been a drought since!

    I think my head is ok, so bottom end might just do the job, whats the history/condition on the unit you've got? Most importantly what are you after for it?

    Ah fair enough.

    Head on mine cracked and I found a low mileage bare APX so went with that, the bottom end was checked over by the mechanic and I was going to get the head rebuilt but when they checked it over that is when they found it to be cracked. car had 130k on the clock and until head/valves gave up on me pulled strongly.

    I am after £70 for it.

    I'm just waiting to hear back from my mechinc mate who's going to be helping to check the idea is a go-er, hopefully be in touch later today/tomorrow.

    I'm near Guildford and have family in Acton so not a problem getting to you if I go with it. Cheers
