scrapping a van question

Recommended Posts

I am scraping out a E150 van. I was wondering if it is worth pulling the aluminium transmission and i think the heads are aluminium too. looking at the scrap value/ time ratio. i got out the rear Dif,drive shaft and going to pull rad and ac condenser. Thanks

Be worth more by selling the good parts than scrap price for the individual sale price per pound of metal. Unless you break the tranny housing and heads ect into small pieces and clean the steel out of it so its raw aluminum they will give regular scrap iron price or a discounted price for non ferous metals. same goes for any other type of individual non-ferous metals like brass copper ect. the clean metal brings the premium price versus big assemblies with mixed materials in it.

yup, unless you strip all the steel off it's not worth it at all for "irony aluminum" as my local yard calls it. Better to haul the whole thing in and get your $240/t without doing any work at all.

Thanks for all the input. i will leave the heads on, and may take out the transmission?. they pay big for the catalytic converter so i will cut them out. I never took apart a transmission could be a good learning experience.
