Was that for the complete engine -ancillaries or for just the block?
I just rang a few dealers and they're coming up with £1400 for just the block and £2900 for engine -ancillaries
Which main dealer supplied you with it?

Might be worth having a negotiate with the dealers, if they order stuff in for stock they get it cheaper somehow? I got 25% off a pair of new front springs for my last Transit, just had to wait 3 weeks.If you are spending this sort of dough they should be up for a bit of discount, times are hard for them as well.

Fuel pump rebuilt and injectors reconditioned
Cam chain investigated, it hadn't jumped, new tensioner fitted
Compression tested, down on 2 cylinders
Head off, no.1 piston has about 10mm play up and down
This has been a nighmare, I've now taken a month off work so far, any advice for me? seems like I need a replacement engine after spending alot of money on this one.
It's a 115ps Jumbo 2005, I checked the van on etis and it comes up 2.4L Duratorq-TDCi (115PS) - Puma. Does that sound right for a 2005? I thought it was a tddi? I'm probably wrong
Can anyone recommend a reputable supplier, I have someone willing to fit the engine for me, I think my main worry is finding someone that I can hold them to their warranty
