Selling 1544cc Engine And 5 Speed Box - What's It Worth?
Posted 05 December 2009 - 09:32 PM
I have lots of paperwork relating to the vehicle. Five speed gearbox bought in 1995. History shows engine has covered about 1200 miles, gearbox considerably less:-
Titan roller rockers
Ported and polished head
Competition cam – not stripped to check which sort
Double valve springs
30 mil Exhaust valves 35 mil inlet.
Engine bored to 73.5 with Omega forged pistons
Turbo crank – believed stroked to give a stroke of 91 mil
Light flywheel, balanced.
Straight cut transfer gears
All mated to a five speed gearbox
Built by Freeway Motorsport
Runs well, seems to be in good nick.
Guess I should seperate the engine abd box - which seems a shame, they go well together.
What would be a sensible reserve should I put it on ebay

theres a topic about your engine on TMF already
Where - can't find it?

Any chance you have any more info on the crank and the bearings used at all?
As 'Sprocket' has raised and as far as i understand getting that kind of stroke by machining that crank wouldn't be possible.
In this case i would say find as much information as you can on the parts used in the build and then it would probably worth placing an advert without a price to gauge interest first. If you then decide to auction through ebay you can notify the people that were interested so they know the auction is happening and you know that you have a few bidders and have an idea of what people are willing to pay. Couldn't really give you an estimate of value due to not seeing anything similar sell to compare it to.
Best of luck with your sale.
