I have a 98 evo motor that has a cracked case. I wasn't trying to sell it but a guy wants to buy it to weld and fix I guess. I told him I would probably only sell as a shortblock minus the cam chest guts. So basically a fully assembled motor minus heads, pushrods, and no cam. How much can I really get for this? I would sell just the cases but don't want to press out the guts. Just don't care that much. I was going to just put it on the shelf or hang it off the wall as a conversion piece along with the rest of the junk I have broken off this bike;)
Input would be appreciated since he wants to check it out tonight. I guess I would rather well it than not sell it. It is pretty much useless to me.

I've seen complete motors go for $700 on ebay. See what he offers. If it doesn't mean anything to you, some money is better than no money.

I figure the guy is going to have to completely dis-assemble it to fix the crack. Then re-assemble and take a huge chance the repair won't hold. He's probably going to have at least 10-15 hours or more in it by the time he has it in a bike and ready to fire. It's up to him to figure out what his time is worth, but if it were me I wouldn't pay more than $250 for the complete motor to take the chance.

Might just be worth it to put it on the wall for that.

With disassembly,splitting the cases,machining,welding up the defects,stress relieving the cases and any other machine work.

I agree Zach....just a nice paper weight

That's what I was thinking guys. I was thinking around $300. Idk, I almost want to keep it. Never thought about selling once until now. They are coming by in a little while. I'll let you know how it goes. If he offers less than $300, I won't even consider it. I'll see what its worth to him.
