I just got back. I only recorded a few engine prices and can post them later when I find my papers.
I think most engines went fairly cheap, with a few engines going for much more than they were worth.
To me it seemed that most of the better engines had various problems which kept me from bidding on several of them. For example the 6hp Ohio had cracked hubs on both flywheels. Some large sleeves were put on the outside of the hubs.
I think some of the sideshafts were pretty good deals if you wanted to search for the correct parts to make the engine complete.
There was a phone buyer that bought a lot of stuff. I and a few other collectors talked to the guy placing the bids while talking to the mystery buyer via cell phone. He told us the name of the guy, but is some new collector in Arizona that no one has ever heard of.
Thanks for the information George. I wish I could have went to the sale and would like to hear your take on it when you find your notes. Prices & conditions on the rarer engines would be apprectiated. Thanks!
A friend of mine went yesterday and put in a bid on a few things for me and a few hours later he called me with good news that i had gotten a engine. I cant wait to get it up here so i can check it out.
