I am part of the group who look after the Avro Vulcan at Wellesbourne airfield. More info at http://www.xm655.com.

As well as our working Houchin ground power unit we also have a "spare" unit driven by an AEC AV691 engine. This hasn't been run for many years and lack of space means we need to get rid of it. Is anyone likely to want such a beast for spares or restoration, or should we just let it go for scrap?

I don't reckon that's a 69 one. Looks more like a wet liner engine to me.
Whatever it is, is worth money as a runner and less as a non runner DON'T scrap it.
