Post Subject: Selling an engine

Hi, I have an engine for sale, it is a Renault RC16D Turbo Diesel. It is old but in good working condition. Where should I look to sell it and how much would it be worth roughly? Thanks

You are asking on a canal boat orientated forum how much a turbo charged engine is worth and where to sell it! Having worked for a Renault dealership for a number of years I would say "your local scrap yard" and "pay them they want to take it away. To be a little more serious. If it is a true marine engine then try Boats and Outboards or Apollo Duck. If its an automotive engine try Auto Trader or Exchange & Mart Motors. You need to do a bit of research in those places to see what they normally ask for them. There is always your local Freecycle site. Tony Brooks

I know that at one time Beta marinised the Peugeot diesel which may well have been sourced from the Renault-Citroen-Peugeot partnership but as far as I know it was never marinised for canal use with a turbocharger. This could be home marinised or done by a small mariniser, in either case that would affect its value. It may have been intended for a river cruiser and I suspect that is the market you should be looking at. If the price is right some boat owners will fit any sort of engine. Tony Brooks
