A while back I asked the list for advice on selling my ICE. I thought I would share the result. This was a '93 mazda b2600i engine with about ~112000 miles. I put it on craigslist for $250, then $150 but got nothing. I called 4 austin salvage yards and none would buy it. Only two even said I could drop it off. One of those was not very polite, and the other was very polite and helpful, just couldnt pay me anything for it.
Anyway, I listed it on ebay and actually had several bidders and eventually sold it for $290. So I was pleased with that. As part of the auction I asked the buyer to pick it up (I wasnt going to ship it). The buyer paid me and picked it up a week after I pulled it. It went about as smoothly as it could.
I appreciate all the advice I received from the list when I originally asked the question.
