yes was a relief was sweating big time. was worried because bought it cheap as needs new bonnet wing and front bumper where it had been hit, so couldnt test drive it properly as had a leaking rad, i work in a bodyshop so can do all the work myself. but didnt want any engine problems to be dealing with mate
