I have a big bag full of small boxes that are unfolded. I guess that there is between 500 and 1000 boxes. They are factory boxes marked for B & S and Techumseh parts that had come in them. I am cleanning the basement and they must go. Best Offer(like you'll pick them up tomorrow). Good Luck, Rick

How about some measurements of common sizes?  This like at at dealership on shelves I take it?  On DARK SIDE....are they really that important and can't just go in burn pile or trash?

For a dealer they are very useful! Buying them new is very expensive about .50 ea box

 

What sizes do you have?

They are all sizes from the little boxes that shear keys came in up to the ones that are about 4" x 4" x 2". I bought out a dealer about 10 years ago. There were many boxes with one little part in them. When I found others of the same part number, I consolidated them into one box for each part numbers. I must have gotten 10,000 or more NOS B&S, Clinton, Kohler, Onan, Tecumseh, and Wisconsin parts. If I had been 2 weeks sooner, I would have gotten all the Bolens stuff including cans of Bolens paint.

 

I am not going to spend time inventorying the boxes. I thought that somone might have a use for them. It has just seemed to be a shame to put them in recycling. I've offered them before. Time is running out. Good Luck, Rick

It depends on how hard that will be to do. I guess that the bag is about 3 cubic feet. I have no idea of the shipping costs or size limits but will consider it. I'll post some pics tomorrow. Good Luck, Rick

Will you sort them by brand and put them in numerical order before shipping them, Rick?  :wallbanging:   :D

Most of the bin boxes fell apart. The parts are now in large boxes stacked in the garage. I sorted by brand and function. Alot of the B&S stuff is from the 60s.. Lots of springs, screws, gaskets, mufflers, ignition and carb parts. Even some cranks, rods, pistons, and complete carbs. I have over 30 small engines that I want to rebuild and figure that these parts will cover a good part of them. Good Luck, Ric

What curb? Why would I put trash out by the road? I can take it to the transfer station for free. I could pay for someone to come get my trash but it would be $50 per month. That is almost what I spend on GTs! Good Luck, Rick
