High mileage but great price. "new professionally fitted gearbox with the german gears rather than the flimsy brazilian ones". Their words not mine! Wink

Do you think he missed the day they did 'charm' at school?! (read the final part in bold) clown

Do you think it's likely to be 78,000 miles or km?

I can understand why you might put certain things in the advert, but why draw attention to a perceived design fault - re gears?

I think that anyone who was considering buying a Brazilian van and had done a bit of research might already be aware that the gearbox might be a potential point of failure, especially in a high mileage van. I also suspect that this is a more common problem in watercooled than aircooled, either because of the higher power or weaker components or both. If I were selling our van I would consider it to be a selling point that it now has a German gearbox. A Brazilian gearbox with German internal components would be an even better combination.

Agreed, even though it's air-cooled if I was selling mine I would definitely make a point of mentioning the box has been rebuilt with a Brazilian case and German internals.
