It’s only my opinion though! eBay it and if there are two people out there wanting it you’ll get the best price.
Is it too late to try to find a second hand gearbox?

Getting similar vibes from David B. - while the engine was in running order when it came out, that was about 25 years ago? so it will need repair and a general rebuild. I will hang on to it unless someone is going to make a really good offer.
Given that this car is for regular use - for a few years yet I hope - I try to keep the running bits in good condition - i have no wish to keep a nice looking car in the garage under wraps!

Hate to say it, but I think you may be a little optimistic in thinking that the sale of the missus` Mini would cover the cost of the gearbox rebuild!

I am rather pleased that I have finally found a use for a collectors bottle of whisky I own - I think it is a sin to keep whisky unopened and untasted - but it turns out to be one of those that has collectors excited. It will provide the major contribution to the smooth running gearbox.
