REMLR - General Chatter / Re: What is an RFSV worth?

bHow much did Bill's go for. Wasn't that around the 60k mark? Or was that how much he paid for it?

Bearman, 7k I think is a bit low. Unless it is a wreck.

I would have thought a better price range would be from high teens to a little over 30k.

Thanks Matt,

It's fitting in nicely between other projects.

So far looks lke it should come up well as it's not a concourse restoration, just a re-commissioning type of thing

Cheers

Thanks for the comments Brian. I have no problem with the power with the KLR turbo, it is just the vibration that worries me. It is a similar problem at all speeds, so I don't think changing diff ratios would help. I have put in heaps of sound deadening and sound shielding, so the noise level is acceptable - but still the vibrations remain a problem.

I would love to fit a straight six, but I really can't see how it could be done without major changes to the engine compartment. I have been wondering about a V6, width might be easier to find than length.

Cheers, Paul

Paul, As you stated the big thing is condition (appearance and mechanical), registered or not, complete or modified etc. As a basic guide anywhere between 7 and 27K depending on what I mentioned in my opinion.

Paul, In my opinion they should have been fitted with the 6BD1T from the factory and it can be done with a fair bit of modification but then the LT95 would then be a borderline gearbox to handle that amount of torque. An Isuzu MSA 5G gearbox mated to the cut off LT95 transfer would be an ideal combination for the 6BD1T. But you can tweak the 4BD1 by upgrading the turbo, tweaking the fuel delivery, bigger exhaust and adding an intercooler and make it very acceptable for cruising. AND up the idle speed a bit to make it more smoother at idle. I have done this to mine and changed the diffs to 3.54 and can comfortably cruise at 100k even into a headwind and mine is standard outside form with the high canvas canopy on the tray. I also run on 100% biodiesel.
