Oh MAN…. Drunkbay Strikes Again!!!!


Martin Tottle’s photos above. Codename ‘Absolutely Barking MAN’ our secret mission to purchase an original D800 MAN L12V18/21B Power Unit discovered on Ebay and purchased from a yard in Barking……

You may guess our ideas for use of this but lets see if we can get a run out of it first!!

Although the main plate has mysteriously vanished, the block is stamped Engine No.220. Anyone with an idea of origin please???

Just a word of warning….Whisky and Ebay do not mix haha!!
