H Engine Value

Report to Moderator

I have an opportunity to buy an H engine from a friend/neighbor. This engine has been stored in a dry shop for 10-15 years. Supposedly it had been rebuilt before being stored. It is not frozen; I was able to turn it over by hand. It does not have the manifolds on it, but it does include a generator. My neighbor says she would like to sell it to me and said to find out what a fair price would be. I am new to Farmalls and I am unsure of the value of parts and components. I bought an H about two months ago.

I'm no expert in the value of the engine. However if I could find one like the one you describe I'd check it out a bit, pull the oil pan and it should be clean. pull the plugs and get a flash light and look in you can see the cylinder wall on the back side it should have cross hatch if the engine was rebuilt. If it was rebuilt or even overhauled I'd give $250.00 in a minute...because MY H engine is really sick.
If you buy this engine I'd think about pulling the bearings and putting in some assembly lube befor trying to run it, it has been sitting for and awfully long time and those bearing have to be needing some lubrication.

Terry, a manafold will probably run you 125 dollars, and I wouldnt even bother with that generator when you can put a new alternator on for 30 bucks. to me if I needed it I would pay 250 for it , PS , a rebuild kit for a H engine goes for 625 but there only good if the person putting it in really knows what their doing. speed bump

Always a hard call trying to establish value when trading with friends. Even if you dont mean to, you stand the chance of offending her, and it is almost certain someone will say you tried to steal it from her no matter what you offer. If I were in your shoes, I would make her put the price on it. My opinion of the value would be somewhere between 150.00 and 350.00 not really being able to know for sure what has been done and how long ago. So much depends on your situation also. If you have a tractor you arent able to use until you find a replacement engine, the value would be on the higher side. If you are simply thinking of haveing a spare engine sitting in the corner, the value would be less. Good Luck

Terry without receipts to verify what was done to the engine, I wouldn't offer over $250. Expect varied responses from other Farmallers then make her an offer. I would wait a day or two for more responses.
