FOR SALE: Anybody want/need some LM turbo parts?

Included in a recent purchase (1966 Monza coupe 95/4-speed) was a collection of 180 turbo bits. I think the PO was planning to convert the Monza into a turbo Corsa. I have the RL short block less heads, a complete 709 turbo assembly, an extra turbine shaft and impeller(s), an adapter to run a 2bbl carb (I already tossed the junk Rochester 2GC), an inlet and outlet exhaust pipe and the stand to mount the turbo on. All of this stuff is here in Southeast Michigan and it is currently way too cold to play with any of it. PM me if interested.

So I had to ask for some help when pricing these turbo parts. Since they never put a turbo on the "real" 140 Corvair engine (1960 engine displacement) one my friends with more horsepower experience has suggested these prices:

1965-6 #709 turbo complete - $250
spare exhaust impeller and shaft with intake impeller - $100
1965-6 "RL" short block w/ rotating assembly - $200
adapter to run a 2bbl downdraft carb - $50

Will consider a take-it-all away package price if you can come and get it. Too hard to ship, but I could deliver to a show. Maybe...

Here a few pics of the turbo parts. If someone can identify if the impeller/shaft bits are early or late that would help me. Thanks! - CP

Here a couple of pics of the 2bbl downdraft adapter for the LM turbo. I still have the dead 2GC carb if someone wants that was well.

Measure the diameters of the impeller and turbine. We can tell you what they are if we have the diameters.

Couple more pics of the impeller/shaft part. They seem to be just about 3" diameter. Does that help identify which turbo they are correct for?

The 2bbl carb adapter has been spoken for.

It looks like the impeller wheel has at least one chip in the fins... sad smiley

Someone correct me if I'm wrong, but any chips pretty much makes it worthless.

Does the turbine have any racks in the fins or scratches/gouges in the shaft?
