What Is A Reasonable Value For A 9 3/8" Mercury Axle?

It is mine. I priced this what I felt might be on the high side. Besides being weaker than a 9" would it typically be used in custom applications?

Worth $200 if you didn't have a 66 Mercury to put it in?
Thanks

Nobody wanted mine for free. Chunk only, 3:00 open. Went for scrap.

The value is in the parts and specific use...but not in dollars.

Chris, unfortunately the 9-3/8" rear end is a specialized piece reserved for those doing proper restorations. Just about everyone else will swap to a 9" for many good reasons. Those who don't do a full 9" swap will most likely install a 9" center in the 9-3/8" housing and use proper length axles to make things work.

I would try to find a good home for it before scrapping it. The housing and tag look good and usable for a restoration.
The "value" of this will be in the good will between you and the recipient.
If you have to place a value in dollars I would not go above $50.
If you have to ship it the cost to do so will most likely stop all sales...maybe not, but probably.

Some day these may be valuable in the same way 2bbl, cast iron, 289 intakes became valuable. Everyone tossed the 2bbl intakes until some began doing proper numbers matching restorations. At that point it was realized they are pretty much gone and really hard to find in good shape. They never reached a high dollar value but they are not as easy to find as they once were.

disc brake?

June 19 2017, 2:11 PM 

Would a disc brake 9 3/8" be worth more?

They will be 31 spline but not much else of value, the coil spring car housing is nasty one to narrow, lots of brackets with welds that gouge into the tube.

The disc brake ones aren't worth much either. 5 on 5 bolt pattern and very heavy and hard to get replacement parts.

I guess it's worth what someone will pay, but those people have no money!

The bolts

June 19 2017, 6:08 PM 

and nuts that hold the axle in are hard to find and even harder it the woods.
They are the big bolts and nuts to prevent fall apart.

If he takes them out I might even consider giving him 20 bucks for them.
If he is willing to mail them up to me.happy.gif

Howie, I've got those. The big 1/2" ones with the "T" head and the self locking nuts.
