    241 Mechanical speedo tail shaft housing - what\'s it worth?

    Doctor4x4 and I have a question for all of you. I'm looking for a 241 rear output housing with a mechanical speedo sender. This is for my son’s K5 to get the speedo hooked up. These were apparently only available in 89, and perhaps as “transition” units in 90, before going to electronic that I have. The problem is, Randy and I don’t have a clue between us what a fair price is, and we both want a fair price for each of us. So, what says the collective wisdom of CK5?

    The best bit of advice you are ever going to get is this, It is worth whatever you are willing to pay for it. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif When I needed something from Randy I told him what I was willing to pay and he thought it was a fair price, I am sure if you make him an offer and it isn't what he thinks is fair he will let you know and come back with a counter offer. Kinda like real estate. /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif

    Will a mechanical setup from a 208 work, or has that idea already been crossed off the list?

    Yeah, I know that one very well from both sides. But we're looking for "the going rate" kind of thing. It's actually not for me anyway, it's for my 16 year old son on a Burger King sallary. So a low price is obviously good. I don't want to make an offer that causes my son to pay more than necessary, but I don't want to make an unfair offer either. So Randy suggested we try this, “What’s it worth” thread…

    I think you may find it hard to come to an agreement by making this post since not many people install the NP241 into a rig with mechanical speedo and are looking for these parts. I guess what I am saying is that not many people have done this swap therefor I doubt there are any people with "REAL WORLD" pricing.

    I don't think the NP208 stuff is interchangable either as someone above suggested.

    This is true. We'll see where it goes and make the call tomorrow. Off to bed for me now...

    Ok thanks. Too bad cause I've got a 208 that I would have hooked him up with cheap.
