Another "What's it Worth?" question

Recommended Posts

HubbardRA
I checked with Jacks online and the part comes up NLA by using the number listed in my manual. The number listed on the tag on the muffler comes up as a muffler for a Regent. When I look that up, it is not the same as the one I got, since the Regent muffler has its inlet on the side not the end. The Regent muffler is priced at $77. So here is the question: what is a Nelson muffler for a single cylinder, 7000 series Simplicity worth? I picked up this one up at a junk shop yesterday for $5. This one is identical to one I already had from an AC 712. I think I stole it, what is everyone's opinion?

$50 give or take, but like Dan said, Ebay might get new price. I used to get $25 or so for a solid but rusty used one. But thats been 5+ years ago now...

From my 2006 price book, 170456 USE 1685505 ............... $91.29. At Jack's $121.75. Their usage I would guess is less then 100 a year v/s the 4-5000 they probably bought when the tractors were being built.

Well folks, I will not be selling this muffler. It will eventually go on one of my tractors. I never planned to sell the muffler, just wanted to know how good a deal I got. Good thing that I had my eyes open when walking through that store. It was laying on a shelf with the plumbing fixtures.

$5 doesn't buy much these days,and you can't have a part shipped for much less than that so pretty much anything is a steal at $5. Sorry to see they are over $100 now:(! If they were $50 I might buy two.

        Over a year ago, you answered a question I had about the tool bar for my FDT. In your reply dated Dec 31, 2019  you said the spacer, part #16, goes in the bar to allow for up and down depth adjustment. does this mean the bolt has to be tightened at whatever depth desired or does the bolt slide up and down, allowing the lower hitch to free float?
         If it is tightened so the lower hitch and the bar are rigid, then is the depth to be controlled by the shoes? Or by the lift handle?
        Is there any kind of user directions for the tool bar? The Outdoor Power Manual basically shows how to assemble the bar but not how to use it
