Default OneSixty's $500 SG Forester

Recently purchased a $500 SG Forester. This and the photos may raise a few questions so i'll answer them so you don't have to ask

Q: What is going to happen with the L-Series? A: Cleaning of the L-Series will be finished and then it will be sold.
Q: Why was it so cheap? A: The owner said the clutch wasn't working, now have found out it's just a missing clutch operating fork. Also won't run on it's own fuel and sounds like only 3 cylinders.
Q: Where is the airbox? A: The owner had taken the airbox off to inspect the clutch.

and it has been washed since the photos were taken

Here are some links to the photos:

He took the airbox off to inspect the clutch? Did he open the boot to check the radiator as well???

He took the airbox off to inspect the slave cylinder/push rod that operates the clutch release arm.

At least it's not as dirty.
Mind you, I guess you've still got to clean the other one up.

W.the.f is up with that tank?? Did they mix the petrol with dirt?

I don't understand how it doesn't have a clutch fork... Who installs a gearbox or engine without the clutch fork fitted? Rookie mistake if it's actually missing.

My L was a $500 bargain. Turned out it needed an engine rebuild. I hope an expense like this doesn't happen with your purchase!

Cheers

Bennie
