I'm a newbie with little knowledge of the value of engines and transmissions.  I have located a a surplus fire truck with a Detroit Diesel 8V-71 with Allison HT740 transmission.  It cranks and runs great.  It is a clean new looking engine, no oil leaks and no smoke.  Engine has 59,000 miles since new.  Engine has never been rebuilt.  It drives wonderfully.  My question is what would be a fair price for both buyer and seller for a package deal for motor and transmission?   Owner is willing to sell me just motor and transmission.  Ron

How much does he want for the whole fire truck-might be better just to buy the whole thing.  New you're looking at around $50,000 for the both, but around $15,000 would be more like it.  It depends on what it is worth to the owner selling it.  Good Luck, TomC
