Default Bessemer crosshead

Could anyone tell me what would be a fair price on a Bessemer crosshead that needs the babbit replaced? Also on the 2 crosshead rails?

the crosshead is pretty tough for the scrappers to steal, so they are rarely missing and not a great demand, unless you need one. i would say start at 150.00 on the crosshead. you can always put best offer considered. the rail caps are real easy for the scrappers to steal and are often missing on engines found in the field. i usually ask 60.00 each for those. best offer can be your friend or your downfall.
