have a 2510 mule that wont start, looking to sell just the shell since we cant find a motor or parts for it looking to sell the whole thing motor in tack for about 500 is this to much to little. where should I post the ad?
Trying to sell one more than a reasonable driving distance from wherever you are located will not be too successful. Freight charges are just too high, and one would be out near twice the value of the machine just for freight.
As far as value, that is a local issue. Around here a 2510 from 1998 that is complete except for the gasoline motor will run right at $400, as long as the brakes, torque converter, transmission, and front axle and drive gear is in good condition.
The diesel version in the same condition without a motor, but will all cooling system components, will run right at $650. However, the diesel units can be repowered with a far less expensive than the OEM Daewoo unit rebuilt engine from John Deere (Yanmar), and then fetch prices in the $3,500 to $4,500 range easily.
A running version of the gas engined 2510, in good shape with a few cosmetic issues, in the A4 series, will bring around $2,000.
The OEM engines can be had from the site sponsor, just call them at their 800 number listed at the top of the page.
All things being equal, I would put in a new engine and make a profit if you want to sell it. They are nearly mechanically identical to the 3010 and to the 4010 except for the 4010 has the fuel injection.
The 2510 is prized by farmers and ranchers as it has a better utility body design than the later models, and are much more durable than the newer units when banged around.
If you problem is just that it will not start, do not jump to conclusions that there is anything serious wrong with the engine. Usually failure to start is simply a clogged carburetor from setting around with fuel in the system, or something as simple as minor electrical or valve adjustment issues - if the radiator is full of good coolant, and there are no apparent leaks anywhere.
