Can you identify these items? (More will be added)

Recommended Posts

Hey guys, if you don’t mind, I’d like to post some engines, tools and related stuff to see if y’all can help me identify. If you have estimates of worth that would be helpful too. I’m preparing to sell a bunch of stuff and I’d like to know what I have. 

 

Please note i have limited connection ability until Thursday. I appreciate your help! 

 

Let’s start with these 4 motors. What year? 

 

3 Flatheads & 1 I'm not sure what it is:

 

A) 8BA  3RT? 8520 also tranny that was on it but someone took it off recently. 

 

B.) 8BA 3RT 6620 also tranny I believe for this one. 

 

C) says EAB on the head but haven't found other numbers. Where are they?

 

also some misc items. 

 

D) not like the others. One head says 7HA 6050-02 

 

Will add more parts/tools later. 

 

Hope to have mechanic make sure they turn (I’m told they do) and possible check other things. 

 

Thank you!

The 8BA engines are obviously Ford flat head  V-8, made 1932 to 1953.  An 8RT is a 1948, I believe, if that's what it says.  There are surely experts here who'll tell you the exact year of each!

I'm no expert here but I think the 8BA were later, like post war and had a more conventional distributor rather than it being driven off the end of the camshaft on the front of the engine.

One tranny looks to be a three speed overdrive, probably from one of the 8BAs. Most likely car.

VL2,

The 8BAs are Ford V8s from 1949 era.  The same basic engine was offered from 1949 - 1953 in ford cars. The trucks had different ID.  These have some value, 100s of dollars, if they are not cracked. Problem is, usually they need to be disassembled to find the cracks.

EAB is 1953.

 

The 7HA is a 6 cylinder of the same era, 49-53. Not as interesting to folks as the V8s but there will be someone willing to pay for this.

 

The transmission in the second photo is a 3 speed with overdrive, same era.  Unknown condition $100 or maybe a more depending on how bad someone wants it. The other one appears to be a 3 speed, same era. same value +/-

 

You might try looking at this site.  You'll find a lot of flathead people there: https://www.jalopyjournal.com/forum/

 

Good luck,

WParo in VT

The first one with the really long Breather/ oil filler tube probably came from a cabover truck. Its the same basic engine as the car ones , but might be more likely to have been worked hard and have the all too familiar flathead cracks.

Thanks guys. My father restored many flatheads of this era. Some of you will remember the 50 project I sold last year or so. 

 

His car car friend said that all of these were good, ran, no cracks but hopefully I can get someone to verify as it is useless to sell them otherwise. 

 

I have not not found any junk so far and was told my father didn’t buy or keep junk. Everything I’ve had worked on so far works and is in good condition so I’m hopeful these are also.

Another tranny in a different area not far from the v6 engine. 

 

Also posting some misc items. Let me know if you see anything interesting to car guys (or gals) or if I should scrap. Thanks.

Most of the parts you are showing have some value. Of course things like engines are a P.T.A. to ship. Flathead Ford V8's  are always in demand, the 6 probably much less.  Probably a Craigslist add will get them sold to someone within pickup distance.  If you take a reduction for a package deal you might even find someone who will buy them all in one shot.  

  Most of the tools you are showing look fairly average in quality, probably not worth the trouble of Ebay. Go thru them and pick any Snap on, Mac etc out , they are worth a ebay auction, then any USA name brand, Craftsman, Proto , SK, Herbrand, etc . for Craigslist. Import tools even if almost new are for a garage  sale , $1.00 / $5.00 your pick table.

Most are the older Craftmen made in USA. He took very good care of them. I didn’t post the basic hand tools in the cabinets.

I like Craftsman tools, good value for the money. They were made in huge numbers.  I often see them at swap meets and garage sales as cheap as $1.00/ $2.00 a piece. Even then they aren't exactly best sellers. Bigger wrenches and the like are more but not all that much.  They are probably the best "bang for the buck" out there for buyers, unfortunately for sellers you aren't going to see much return for your time. I own a couple of hundred Craftsman tools , but other than the odd $15.00 fine tooth ratchet I doubt I paid more than $5.00 for any one piece.

These are the the trailers. Nothing fancy. The first one is a POS. Any value? Dad had the flatheads in it. 

 

The PU bed someone will want. All makes are the same except the tailgate. 

 

The camper trailer will be listed. It’s really nice with sunroof, etc. dad was a dealer and this was his demo. He pulled it with his Model T. I have pics of that. I doubt it was ever used but for display. Sorry I haven’t cleaned the dust off it yet but the paint is very nice.

VL2. I sold an engine lift for $90 by putting a sign at end of drive saying “Tools for sale”. Sold out quickly. Try to make sets of tools - all sizes of sockets from small to large is a box with a ratchet, then put the sets on a table saying $20 or $25 per set.  If you are going to do a garage sale I’ll be happy to post the location and dates, listing some major items on the Ford Truck 48-54 site. There are a lot of members in TX that want a good flat head V8. Good blocks are getting harder to find at reasonable prices. Let us know where and when asap

Seems the GMC trailer should be worth atleast 500.  Maybe as high as a 1000 if the gate is really nice and it doesn't have any rot.

You might even be surprised.  I would throw the Junk trailer on Craigslist for 150.00 and let people make an offer.  

 

I actually bought tools from someone yesterday in a similar situation as you are in or atleast they are handling it for the family.  Alot of theirs are snap on Matco etc.  of course along with some craftsman.  

I bought about 30 Gear wrenches from them Yesterday for 40.00.  They have a few Snap on Boxes as well as a couple craftsman and a Husky.  I pointed out a bunch of stuff I was interested in and I'm waiting on the seller to get back to me with prices.  Alot of their stuff is metric so it might have a little more appeal as more stuff is Metric now.  

Seems nothing special wrenches are worth around a 1.00 a piece.  I've even bought Snap on at about 2.00 a piece.  It all depends on how bad the seller wants to move the stuff.  

Putting the sets together as much as possible is best as a full set of wrenches will sell better than a few rogue ones. 

I would check and see if that 3/4 drive ratchet set in the green box is an SK.  if so it should have a little value to it.  They sure are nice to have when you need sockets that big. 

My Dad gave me his old SK set when he got a newer overseas set from a friend.  I had my choice of either and I took the SK even though it's definitely much more used than his new set is. 

As mentioned I think a tool sale sign will get rid of the majority of stuff in quick order.

I was thinking that also. I’m in Texas so things don’t tend to rust badly. Seems solid. Here are more pics.

Vic, the red plastic pouch with tools that look like the letter T are telescoping gauges. Red pouch may be Starret brand. That is top of the line. Not up to date on prices anymore but sure you can find out on net. One large dealer that sells them is MSC.
