ARN 202-200

Don't know what started it, but the auction listing says"No Written Off Vehicle Register (WOVR) Listing".

The only reason I can think of for an Insurance Company not to write that off is if it was not insured!

Cracked fuel line spraying onto the turbo is a common cause. I've seen a few vehicles in the goldfields go that way.

You mean OIL line. No fuel lines on that side of the motor where the turbo is mounted. I have seen an early landcruiser burn like that where the oil filter was mounted on the LH side near the exhaust manifold. Hose split and hot pressurised oil straight onto the exhaust!!
