T120tt cases and pistons value

Hello all. I bought a bunch of parts from a guy that included a couple of motors. One of which was a t120tt lower end. Cases, crank, cams, pistons, etc. I am torn between keeping them and selling them. Does anyone know the value of such items and if they are worth parting out? Thanks for the replies.

I used to be able to sell semi-complete engines needing total overhaul for $1,000 all the time. Never tried to sell a lower end by itself, but I'd guess $500 or so. It could be a starting point anyway...

Without the matching frame, I wouldn't think being a tt makes it anymore valuable than any other T120 bottom end.

Everything will be alright in the end.
If its not alright, its not the end.

Worth a lot more in the UK. Last week, a T120 crank made about 340 bidding. Bottom ends might be around 1400 if the gears and primary are still with it.

Now,where did that bit fall off ?
