Default Fuller & Johnson Engine Collection

Hello, going to auction off my fuller collection. Wondering what I should be looking for prices. Can anybody give me some input? 3,4,5, and 7hp. Will be at Crosby threshing show auction.

The prices are like with all engines and that is what ever you can get the day you sell them.

Price tags in auctions don't help.

So you are saying if it brings 200.00 just let it sell?

I see mostly type N's and type K's. All fairly common engines and No Clutch pulleys this don't help the value.

If you had Peoples Priced engines with the split hubs that would help. If they were Double Efficiency's they would be in the 4,000 dollar range or more a piece.

Common engines actually seem to be going down in price while rare ones are holding their value or even going up.

I have seen 6 F.J.'s sell at auction in the last couple weeks. They were all in the $5-800 range and with carts and one had a saw rig. If you have a price in mind I would recommend trying to list them on engine adds, that way you can control what you get out of them. You never know at an auction and a reserve will turn bidders off. Auctions are great for liquidating estates and getting rid of stuff fast but if you have some time a good old personal sale is the way to go.

They're not, you have a pair of model K throttle governed kerosene engines and a pair of model N hit miss gasoline engines.



The 3hp K looks most complete. Your 4hp has a mag so that's good. I see non original mufflers, some missing fuel tanks along with a few other things that aren't correct. I don't know engine prices in your part of the country but I'd say 3hp $650, 4 and 5hp $800ea and 7hp $1500. Less if anything is worn out, repaired or bent.
