I decided to buy a wrecked 170B for a few parts that I want to keep on hand just in case I do something silly. I've been dismantling it pretty carefully, but even so, realized afterwards that some structure that was likely usable, well, is not now. Amazing what a maniac and a recip saw can do. I'd never thought certain brackets or pieces had value until I started looking on line a bit deeper, and found some things on E-Bay.
As I've taken things apart, I've been pretty good about bagging, tagging, and marking what they are or where they came from. What I don't have is a way to look up part numbers, or the correct name of the part. Is there a place on line to find that type of info, kind of like looking up Polaris snowmachine parts? Those type of lookups also give you which machines a certain p/n will fit.
I'll plan on selling most of what I am taking off to offset the cost of the original purchase and parts I'm keeping. There is actually quite a bit of good looking and non-damaged pieces I've got set aside. I even took off some of the skins carefully in case somebody needed a template, and as I understand it, even slightly damaged structure may be usable by somebody for patches, etc.
I'm not about getting rich here, only trying to offset those costs I mentioned. Where is the best place to go look up pricing so I can be sure I am at least reasonable and not wasting my time, or potential buyers?
Thx for the pointers,
