Default FM Z 6HP Value?

Recently my adventures took me on a road that I have not been on for many years, while on that road I noticed a FM Z 6hp in a yard about 2 miles from home. I stopped and asked if it was ok to walk into their yard to get a closer look at it. They said that was fine and that it was running a few years ago. Taking a closer look at it I could see where it had been welded up in a few places and it is now ceased up.
I’m thinking of making him an offer for it, what would be a reasonable amount to pay for it.
Thank you
Ken Adamson

Default FM Z 6HP Value?

Thanks Larry,
Here in this part of Oregon we get a lot of rain and damp weather and if something is left outside it better be well lubricated or it rust really fast. About this time last year I drug two engines out of the briers and put them in my shop and have been attempting to free them since then, with some luck. So, I hear you about not knowing what a person might get into.
Thanks again
Ken

A 6 hp Z was for sale at the Shelton, WA show last summer and the asking was, I think, $750. It had a magneto, but may have needed a crankguard. It was a runner and sold sometime that day for ?? .

Ken, I have had several 6 hp Z's and it all depends on what is there and what is gone. If it has a mag that is a couple hundred and a crank guard is at least a hundred as I have not found any one who makes a good one aftermarket. They sell here in the Puget Sound area for 600 -950 again depending on the options and condition. Look it over good, I am very sure that it is worth 300 Good Luck M
