    If the engine doesn't turn Sid, I'm afraid its time to start the hunt for a replacement.....very bad luck here.

    Is Burnerman said, the engine is scrap if its been run out of oil and seized up as a result.

    Don't be tempted to try and rebuild it, won't be sucessfull and money down the drain..
