Many people in the present economical climate are experiencing financial difficulties, but i reckon saving a few quid is scraping the barrel by fitting a used belt.

BTW, Bidding has already started at 99p!
I'd be wondering why anybody would be taking a Cam Belt off a engine with only 4k on it bet he 'hmm forgot to add a zero' behind the 4. Unless it was a total write off then i would have thought it would be a dealer selling the whole engine off but thats only my guess
