WIW,Not 1st Dibs
 
This is a "What`s It Worth" board for members who are "considering" selling parts to get help on establishing a value before listing in that "For Sale" board provided for us selling parts. It`s not meant to be a place to lurk and get a jump ahead of others on parts. It especially bothers me that some are so anxious to get a jump on it they only post their desire w/o even offering the help (giving an opinion on value) asked for by the member with the item. I see it as greed and it`s not cool. If your only interest is in buying parts please move on to the parts board and wait for what you seek to appear. By offering a price you are helping the would be seller take their first step towards selling the part. I'd like to also ask those posting a WIW thread to ignore these offers as a way to help curb the greed. Thank you.

Figure some are asking for a value so they can decide whether they want to sell or not. It's real simple, if it's here it's not for sale yet.

So there has been almost 15k views and no questions on a part market value?

I'll test the waters.

I've recently removed a good sm465 and replaced it with a transmission with OD. I don't know how old it is but it has the typical layer of grease and no bell housing. One of the roll pins in the shifter is broken but it works. I plan on keeping it until the "new" transmission is proven road worthy (just in case I have to re-install it) I am running out of garage space so keeping the 465 isn't an option. Eventually, it's gotta go.

Worth selling?

Hey Richard, this thread is a sticky at the top of the WIW section. I posted it back when I was forum staff and this section had just gotten started. It was annoying with people hovering to snatch parts that the seller hadn't even had a chance to establish it's worth yet. Just thought I'd tell you so you could post down below where people will be looking.
