I'm not sure what they're worth, but I recently spent $2100 to totally rebuild my Onan 19.9hp (I broke a piston rod) and before that was about $150 to fix my steering (all after about 29 years of constant yard work)...so I'd have to ask at least $2500 for mine...but I'll never sell it anyway...heh. It's still a yard working beast! With care I should still be driving it for another 30 years.

They are worth what someone is willing to pay and accept. I have about $2,500 into my whole package, have done a few minor repairs and am getting ready to do a few more. My 982 package includes the tractor (single hydraulics, dual brakes), 50c deck, rear PTO, an aftermarket Cat 0, 3 point hitch that I bought new, and the 3 point tiller. I just read on another board where a member picked up a similar 982 package for $1,500 and was wondering if he got a good deal

Most of the ones I've seen sell in running condition went well over $1500. The ones with blown engines (but otherwise in good shape) are usually advertised for $500 or more. The ones in poor "parts unit" shape usually run at least $300.
As mentioned above the cost of overhauling the Onan engine is very high (nearing or exceding the cost of a cheap Chevy small block overhaul). Unless you have have the PTO or the hydraulics I'd rather have a 1650 for ease of ownership (and you can add the hydraulics to the 1650).
