 There are many many of these dinosours laying around,, $100.00 would be fair for all.>>>Dan (If you have one you probably have no use for it, the other side of the sword, is if you need one the alternatives are many)

Depends on how good a friend he is, and the shape of the unit.  Works good but needs a rebuild - $300 is what I would charge.  Rebuilt in your memory and completely trouble free - $500.  Rebuilt last year and never used because it's a spare - $750.  What I would charge a friend - could be free if he promises to plow my driveway next year...  I am SO tired of snow...

I got a rebuilt one a few years ago for a D3: $1200, or was it $1500? That was a belt driven, oil cooled on a Series 60.

My gear driven 50DN exchanged for a rebuilt with new digital regulator was $1,500.00. Good Luck, TomC

If you check Ebay, you will see several for sale in various conditions.  The rebuilts seem to range from $850. from Kirks on up.  Used would be less of course.  I sold an old rebuilt one a while back for $300. to someone on the board.  If the one you have is used, it may be a good idea for your friend to have it tested and even rebuilt before installing it.

A core charge is probably tops for a used vintage model 50D from a 4106
