FOR SALE: poor condition, 1152880 Engine, transmission, pedals, brake, radiator, et al

Post by tracymshepard » Sat Jan 09, 2021 3:30 pm

FOR SALE: poor condition, 1152880 Engine, transmission, pedals, brake, radiator, et al. Best offer. My dad bought this from a farmer who used it to pump water. Stored inside since 1950's in Bloomington, Illinois. Apparently the serial number indicates March 1916 production. Thanks, Tracy

Hi:

I doubt the engine turns, it's been sitting since the 1950's. Yes, there is a shaft coming off the back of the transmission. I will send you a photo of it tomorrow. Price, $400? Yes, I can store it until you have time to pick it up.
Thanks
Tracy

Thank you. Another guy, from out west, might be interested. I will keep you fully informed as to the status of the engine. I feel I should give everyone a few days to see the post before I settle on the deal.
Thanks
Tracy

Hi From Iowa: I am interested in your engine & said that I would purchase for your asking price & would also pick up at your location. Do we have a deal or is there something else going on here? Thanks John

Appears to be "fishing" for an offer.

A real mystery? I have sent a PM & posted here with no response either. Normally when someone posts a part and a price that is how we know what is out there & can make a purchase like I have done many times! I'm not sure what is going on, but I am interested & would like to hear back from the seller? Thanks John

I agree, Something "fishy" here. He posts a product and asking price, someone responds offering to pay the asking price and the stuff is still for sale?? Buyer beware....big time.

You posted a not terribly rare engine with a broken head (one of the more desireable parts of the engine which is now useless) for sale and said "$400?"

You had a really decent guy who wanted to buy it and drive 2000 miles round trip to pick it up, no less.

Then you got an offer to purchase from a guy who is a little bit closer to you and is as solid a person as they come, too. And no sale.

Then you went fishing for "best offer".

Then you got nasty with people who, I can all but guarantee based on your responses, know more about your rust pile than you ever will, even if you get help off of the internet with a teenage mentor. You weren't going to be cheated by this crowd. Though you don't know them, to your detriment the crowd now knows you.

I'm going to bet that you probably already got your best offer and it will only go down from here.

having burned bridges with a couple solid leads already, good luck with the sale

Well said Scott. I'm pushin' 80 and have never been involved with a site and it's members better than this one. Way too many sincere, honest, and straight up guys to have to deal with this sort of nonsense.

Is that a Bosch DU4 magneto and three gear front drive plate I see on this engine?
Must be some value there.

I will try to identify what type of Bosch magneto is on the engine. Several members of this forum have been helping me to that end. I hope to get this info out to you all as soon as possible.
Thanks
Tracy

Hi From Iowa! The mag & drive are the main things of value on the project that I noticed & what I why I was willing to pay the asking price. There is not much more there to add much higher value, but normally when you list something & post your price that is it? I have bought & sold many parts on this forum & thought I understood how we do business? If a biding war was wanted it should have been listed on e-bay not our Great MTFCA Site? Just my Opinion - Thanks John

Sorry for the delay, the Bosch magneto plate says: AMERICAN BOSCH DU4, MADE IN U.S.A., ED-18, 2846658.

If anyone is still interested in this then please contact me at tracymshepard@gmail.com

Please contact me if you want any additional information or photos.

It is for sale to best offer, like ebay. It is for sale as a whole, not parted out. The engine inside a barn and the buyer can pick it up anytime, no rush.

Sorry for all the problems I caused by listing this engine. I want to say thank you for all the gracious help members provided me.

Thanks
Tracy

Tracy, I have absolutely no interest in your engine, but I do have a comment on your selling practice. This forum is not set up for bidding or offers like eBay. It is a fixed price, by seller, buy by purchaser set up. If you insist on best offer, you really should put a time limit on the sale, such as midnight on such and such day, and stick with it, taking the best offer. You might also consider keeping a running post on bidding so buyers can keep track! I fear that you have pushed away most buyers that might have wanted it, with your indecisive postings.

Hi From Iowa! Out of consideration for you, as you are evidently not familier with how this site works, I will extend my offer to meet your asking price of $400. It is the magneto & drive that I would like to use on a speedster, but there is no way of telling their condition with out disassembly and checking. the rest has minimal value beyond core value. Let me know if you are willing to accept my acceptance of your offer? Thanks John
