Default Briggs on Ebay

I have a question for you. ( of course ). How much will a decent 5S/6S engine go for? There is one on ebay, states has no spark so it can't be started, that has passed the $40 mark and still climbing.

At live auctions and engine shows model 5S Briggs can sell in the range of $5 - 50, depending on condition and how badly two guys at an auction want the engine.

One thing to remember on an ebay auction is that, unless you live close enough to go pick up the engine, you're going to pay shipping on a 35 - 40 pound package. Depending on the shipping method used the final price can be up to double the "knock down" price on ebay.

Its crazy how those prices climb, I don't think people realize what Leonard said about the extra shipping prices.

It has always boggled my mind, even on other stuff that sells on eBay. There are times when something will sell for more than you can buy it at the store.

Shows that there is always someone with a deeper pocket, or desire to buy. I've had my share of wins, but mostly outbid.

Either they have deep pockets, or just too lazy to go shopping.
Some of the engines I've seen aren't too bad. It's the ones that should be cheap are the ones that people bid like crazy on.

Thumbs up Re: Briggs on Ebay

Hi. I paid $110.00 for this 6S. I bought it about six years ago. I think the price differs pretty much depending on the condition of the engine IMHO.

Enjoy this great Hobby!

Yep, but 900.00 is a bit steep and doesn't have the hard to find air cleaner.

I guess people think that since we're infected with " old iron" disease, our brains have gone to mush, too.
