    I would fix it and drive it, ideal for my dogs, stick my engine in WWWOOOOHHHOOOO!

    Imagine the 3 dogs squished against the back screen. He can take the interior, i already have one, in better condition,lol

    Worth a few hundred as a complete car, interior being the exception

    Oil pumps rarely go unless the engine has been neglected, spares maybe, not repair IMO

    Agreed. My bruv bought a van with an oil pump fault and changed the pump as it was just registering low pressure. All was fine for about a fortnight.... then the crank snapped!!! The low pressure must have weakened the engine somehow as cranks dont snap too easy.....
