Default Engine Blue Book?

Hi,
I just bought some RC airplanes fom an estate sale and I had no choice but to take boxes of stuff with my purchase that the seller wanted to get rid of because they were tired of looking at them. One of the boxes included many OLD engines

Torpedo 40 engines, rear carb and front carb
Numerous small Enya and OS 15 engines
Merco engines
Old supertiger engines (no muffler but exhaust has a valve on it that connects to the carb)
various other "old" engines that I've never seen before.


How do I find out what they are worth? I'd lke to sell them and want to make sure I'm not getting taken advantage of by a seller who is more knowledgeable about the engine's value than I am. I intend on given profits from the sale back to the estate or to a charity.

Do a *bay advanced search for completed auctions using the engine in question, You'll get a pretty good idea of what they will bring.

Put them on ebay for $.99 and you will find out exactly what they are worth.

Some of the old supertigre engines go for mucho $$ on ebay. I am a fan of the more modern ST engnes, but I cannot tell you what makes some of the old ones valuable and others not, they also came in more flavors back then than they do today.
