I have an opportunity to purchase a Warford Transmission that has not run for some years and was rebuilt before storage. It comes with the shortened drive shaft. My question is, what is a fair price for the unit.

Which model of Warford is it? There are cast iron, aluminum, under/over/direct, under/direct and over/direct. What was rebuilt? Cleaned and painted isn't rebuilt. $150 to $300+ seems to be the going price for ones in not bad shape. I just payed $150 for one of the cast iron 6 speeds and there was another at the same sale that went for the same price.

My stock answer to such a wide open question is, "How long is a piece of string?"

Mark shows just what I mean. There are so many variables. Condition, type, rebuilt/re-conditioned, etc.

Dan's info helps, but it does reflect the wide variability. There is no substitute for inspection. I bought a nice one at Chikasha. The vendor was clued up enough to leave the top loose so the buyer could check the insides. However, if the info is just to get the seller into a realistic price range, any prices paid may well be a good enough guide.

Hope this helps.

Allan from down under.

Mark and Allen, I will first see the Transmission Monday afternoon and take your advice in hand. Thanks for helping this newbie, to Model T's.

George

Remember too, the inner taper bearing is no longer being manufactured.

Larry, I read here several months ago that someone found a new source for that center bearing?
