Idle minds - trade in or hold tough?

Hi all,

Somehow I've accumulated three engines at present ☺️

30hp 2004 Yamaha (4 stroke carb)
10hp 2006 Honda (4 stroke carb)
6hp 2000 Yamaha (2 stroke carb)

There's a 40hp 2007 tohatsu TLDI for sale by a local tohatsu dealer, I'm thinking of asking him would he take my 30hp & 10hp as a trade against it? Going to use the 6hp as a kicker

Worth thinking about? Or just winter boredom...

Local Yamaha dealer won't see me ever again, (long story) so kinda worried that if anything else goes wrong I'll be sorry and stuck

Any opinions welcome

Cheers
Noel

They both have it, although on the 30hp that I have the switch on the remote never worked and the tilt position sensor on the transom bracket looks seized...

I guess it all depends on the economics of it.

40hp TLDI Is for sale @3695, the 30 & 10 together should be there or thereabouts... Can't seem to find a genuine buyer for the 10, although some people expect you to give it for next to nothing

Shouldn't cost much to change and free up some space in the shed ...

I know nothing about TLDI though, would it be a good bet?

Thanks

mmm...

I think you'll be a bit off that price at trade in values, especially if the PTT is needing attention. He may also be keen to turn that engine into cash rather than more stock.

If I was taking part ex on those engines I'd probably be looking at something around the following assuming they're in reasonable condition:

30hp with dodgy PTT - 1200ish
10hp - 1000

He offered me 1000 for the Honda 10hp earlier this year before I bought the 30hp... Hopefully get close again

Is the 40hp Tohatsu worth having at that price though?

Cheers

Sounds pretty pricey. You'd do much better selling your engines privately and buying a 40hp elsewhere. If you did that you could turn the two into a 40hp without having to add any more money.

EDIT: Sorry didn't realise until I re-read that you're working in Euros, so your 40hp works out at 2777 which is a bit better, however you would still be much better off selling yourself.
