Price Value

Hello everyone!
We have a 1993 Ford B700 Carpenter skoolie that we've made into a permanent structure. We're interested in selling some of its insides ;P & wondering if someone knows how to find out the value of bus parts? We're trying to figure out how to price a Cummins 5.9L Turbo Diesel engine & Allison AT545 transmission.

We appreciate your time & suggestions!

We're aiming to sell the engine as a whole.

The odometer reads 213638. We drove 1380 miles of that w/o any issues. Sorry for our ignorance, but how do we find out if it's a 12V?
It's been 2 years since we drove it.

This is what we had done:
45 Day Inspection
Serpentine belt (AC & alternator)
New air filter & cleaner
Oil change and replace fuel and fuel water separator
Zerk fittings need to be greased under bus

if it's a 1993 it's a 12 valve, someone correct me if I'm wrong

5.9 Cummins 12 valve with rotary pump. Parts engine $1000 good running engine $2000. 545 transmission commonly found $300-$500 range

Other bits and bobs have a market too. Like adapter plate on the back of the engine, the flywheel and other engine to transmission parts.
