Hi thank you for your message, I appreciate this is important to you so I will endeavour to give you a quick but clear answer. Please note this is note a chat service so responses may not be instantaneous. If you have a written contract then reference should be made to the contract but if there is no such written contract then yes you can return the deposit and keep the engine to sell to another customer. Hopefully, I have answered your query in a way that is simple and easy to understand. If anything remains unclear, I will be more than happy to clarify it for you. In the meantime, thank you once again for using our services.
