G'Day Shawn,
Nice find and looks like an easy fix to them all. Not sure if another solenoid is easy to find for the one that is broken on the starter motor but well worth replacing as it would make it more desirable if you intend to sell it.
Pricing things can be a case of supply and demand. If there are a lot of people looking for one you can achieve a slightly better price. Do a search on the auction sites to see how many if any are up for grabs and how much. This can dictate selling price unless you ahve something in better shape or condition. You can do a test on each engine and make a list of repairs then cost those and then you can offer the same engine as is or repaired.
Just an idea!
Cheers John

Location is everything when looking for market value!

Hi Shawn, In Australia I picked up an ST2 Startomatic for under $1000. It cost me another $1000 to get it back into service. A good way to estimate the hours on an engine, without having to tear it down, is to have a look at the top of oil pump plunger, if it`s badly worn where the cam lobe hits it the engine has done a lot of hours.
