To be honest, MOT's are so easy to come by that it isn't worth it to try

just check curbside on trash day. A few blocks travel should net you a
fine dead MWO, and
the bigger the better. Appliance repair shops would probably give you one
for free, or a
Salvation army / Rescue mission type place would have one for a few bucks.
