Value of Albin AD-2 diesel?

Hello again forum, I've decided to repower my Allied Seawind and upgrade to one of those well reviewed Beta engines. Question I have is what to do with the Albin diesel, that still runs fairly well? What do you think the value would be as-is (i.e. needing a rebuild)...or maybe I could just keep it around for future projects/boats?

Re: Value of Albin AD-2 diesel?

They are bullet proof engines. Parts can be gotten from Sweden. It should be priced the same as any 2 cylinder Volvo that you can hand start with a crank. They are very simple engines with compression levers, a starter/generator unless it's been changed and easily starting by hand once you get the hang of it.
