Default V70 Lpg spares or repairs £400

My V70 2.5 petrol with a fully working and serviced Prins lpg system has had by the sounds of it just died,think cambelt snapped but not investigated it.
I wanted to offer it up for sale here in case anybody wants to salvage the system and have any other parts of it,the wings are all good for example.
I can get £200 if I weight it in so I think £400 is more than fair.
Registration is V568 RFL and itís dark green.
Lpg system was serviced in last 6 months and Iíve been doing over 800 miles per week in it without fault until Thursday this week.

As my other post, if Prins, you want to salvage the injectors, likely Keihin which are pretty good + rail -mount + maybe the vapouriser, and the filler + tanks.

Then again your Keihin might be tired?

I don't think the LPG trade like Prins too much, (it requires software most won't have?) wiser than me will be able to say.

The car is worth more in scrap value than £200. A local breakers yard to me has quoted £340 regardless of condition.

Just got quoted £377 and thatís with being picked up and taken away at their expense,guessing they would be sticking minimum of £50-£100 for that so if I get it to scrapyard myself must be looking at £400 minimum.

The parts I list won't knock that price, thus pull 'em off...

Have you seen the price of Keihin Orange injectors. Ouch.
