Postby kennyb11 » Fri Jul 06, 2018 10:57 pm

hi folks hope your well I have a 2002 jumbo transit 2.4di engine which ive owned for 13 years .ive kept on top of the rust over the years and the bodywork is in pretty good shape, also sound mechanically (thanks to good advice here) sailed through mot last week with 312,000 miles on the clock. im curious to know the highest recorded mileage on a transit van? Am I in with a shout or will I sell the mig?

Ma auld 2.2 130 had done 364000 before it past away just before Christmas.
Now at 402000 but don't suppose that counts for anything seeing its a replacement second hand engine

Aye but it's not just the engine that has done that mileage the whole van has so technically it still counts :D 8) N
