Just read on the Wings over New Zealand forum this about your ad: "Not so much an engine mount but part of the engine, connecting the accessory section to the main body of the engine. From an early Gloster Meteor by the look of it. Could well be from NZ6001" If this is true you have an engine part from the very first RNZAF jet to fly in New Zealand!!!
You guys are mean building his hopes up,he thinks he's just won lotto with the Meteors engine.
Theres no way that ever went in an early Meteor,the first jets were so underpowered they really did need to get off the ground using the curviture of the earth. I'm picking its off an industrial gas turbine installation like a compressor,generator or similar,looks to heavy to fly.
