no thermostat, head fitted wrong with bolts not torqued leading to burnt through head gasket, knackered fuel pump cam shaft cog redrilled and pin inserted after it had broken the list goes on, I have not driven it this year and had to buy a surf ready for the bad weather. I am mechanically minded but due to illness have put Delica into storage until I can face rebuilding the engine.
If it had cost good money I would have been really upset especially as it suits my disabled partner as it is easy to get into the back with crutches or wheelchair.

It's a shame as some if his Delicas look really nice but its tbe same old story of abc limited folds owing thousands then same person starts up as bcd trading in the same building next day and its all legal.

I donít post that often but sadly this t****r caught me as well. I was totally off my guard a few weeks ago when my bus failed itís MOT for very severe corrosion underneath. I was told unrepairable unless I was prepared to get very extensive welding work done. But since I owned it for nearly 10 years felt it time to let it go and if the chassis is bad then rest is as well.

Caught sight of his clever adís on the well known auction site and fell for it hook, line and sinker. Especially when he was willing to take mine in a trade in Ė I jumped too quick which is not like me.

Had I been parting with big money this would not have happened but just goes to show your heart can rule your head.

He said all the advisory faults on the latest MOT were sorted Ė one was and still working through the faults not listed.

Iíll put this right as best I can but the next one I get will be newer and RAC inspected.

As in previous posts in this thread donít touch this guy with a Barge Pole!

Rant overÖ..

sort of off topic, but it all reminds me of someone similar but the opposite end of the country from the not too distance past...same sort of attitude and 'service'....I'm sure some of the regulars will remember.

Whatever did happen to him he was shunned by nigh on all the Deli clubs and owners in the end.

Wished I'd seen this thread 6 months ago. I drove up from London to see his Delicas this summer. He was very nice and was happy to have a mechanics inspection, so I put a deposit on one of his Delicas which we agreed would be refundable if any major faults were found. Cut a long story short the mechanic concluded car wasn't roadworthy (a very long list of MOT fails - I'd been told they'd been sorted...) and Dean refused to pay back deposit. Still waiting... I've had to go through the courts. Expensive learning experience but could have been worse. Hopefully the bailiffs can deliver him my Xmas card!

I feel sorry for anyone trying to sell an honest Deli in the Wigan area,- would you risk it?

For the prices he is asking, they should be mint, but from past records, will more likely be well polished faecal matter.
