    At a guess I'd say that the vac hasn't got enough grunt, the inlet will be too small, the poles will be too heavy, and the camera is probably just a cheap one you could pick up from China anyway. I reckon the dude selling it decided to upgrade, or ditch the vac idea altogether.

    Looks in alright Nick in the pic. It's had a new cambelt and engine work. I would take my chances assuming it was OK in the test drive.

    189k. Its had a new engine top end and cambelt. Probably a cambelt snapped. But everything else is going to be well past its sell by date - well worn.

    I notice a bit of rust on the outer sills. I see its been picked up as an advisory for MOT the past 2 years. I just get the impression looking at the MOT history that work is only done on the van to get it through MOT - eg. tyres close to legal limit (1.76mm). The tyre that was below 1.6mm (not legal) was changed but the other at 1.76mm was left. If its an advisory then its just been left. For a van to fail MOT on a couple of light bulbs shows me a lack of attention or care for the van.

    That's my opinion. It wouldn't touch it as it doesn't inspire any confidence in me.
