    Old starters/alternators

    For awhile I would just sell them as electric motors but then I saw this rebuild shop for starters and alternators. so I went in there and was able to sell them for$5.00 each. Is this a good deal or am I getting ripped off?

    Scrap value is only around $1.00- 1.50 so I think your doing ok. Especially if you don't have to travel far to get to them.

    1.00 to 1.50? Could swear starters are heavier than that. 30 cents a pound.

    alternators average $5 for scrap here, I usually don't mess with starters, I have sold a few alternators to the rebuild shop here, I think I got $8 for them, they are out of the way from my normal rounds so I usually don't think about them
    expect the worst and hope for the best
