Crank shaft worth

Just so happens a guy at the machine shop needs an stock iron Pontiac Crank for a 350, I happen to have an extra.
What would be a good barter price? I have to get my block checked for bore size and deck ht, and the heads cc'd so I can order Pistons.
No actual machine work needed yet, just numbers needed. Is this fair, low or high?

Given that Pontiac 350 cranks are probably almost worthless (to most folks) if you can get ANYTHING for it I think that is great....you know it is just going to sit in your garage for the next 12 years otherwise!

Most Pontiac guys (like me) will typically build a 400 or 455...I don't think you can even get forged pistons for a 350 any more unless you go custom.

Later,

Chris

The Pontiac crank is actually the same from 326-400 so it can be used in a lot of engines, so they aren't exactly worthless, especially if you need one, he does, and they are getting a little more scarce these days. Still lots around, just maybe not locally when you need one.

Aftermarket forged cranks go around $700 + shipping, a reworked cast stock about $200-$300 maybe, I don't really know.
I'm just trying to figure what a stock cast crank may be worth on the barter market. I'd think about $75-$150 worth of labor since all I'd be asking him to do is check all tolerances so I know where my engine is at the moment.
