Price of a Used Diesel

I have an old Perkins 4.108 on the boat. I am planning on re-powering to electric and would like to remove this engine. The engine was running until I disconnected the wiring. It has had some work done to it including a new alternator, rebuilt transmission, and rebuilt injectors etc. I have a recent video of the engine running.

I am in no means a mechanic but I want to remove the engine anyway to at least clean up and do some work in the engine compartment. I also figured that If I decide not to go electric it would be much easier to cleanup, tuneup the engine out of the boat anyway.

What would be a fair price to sell this engine for and would the price vary if part of the deal was to help remove it?

Thanks for your input

I have seen them on ebay for as much as $3000.00. Just a thought.
