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

My MK3 transit got 398980 owned from 39500 miles on 2 litre petrol pinto engine , broke 3 fan belts in its life , worn one out 1cam and replaced crap vv carb with a twin choke Webber, worse on fuel but sounded great ....
Only problem I had was the oil pump was stuck at 5 bar , my garage mate said its why the engine was so sweet , scrapped the van but sold the engine to a taxi driver who wanted the block for his car ..
Best van I had
