Is it me or does this one keep cropping up, maybe it's because it's not been MOTd for 3 years. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Rover-214-GSI-5-speed-manual-1993-1-owner-and-only-71-500-miles/223090986545?_trkparms=aid%3D222007%26algo%3DSIM.MBE%26ao%3D2%26asc%3D52945%26meid%3D5eb688712812493aa80092f3a14ed...

the wrong gearbox and noisy tappets and it's not enough!
