Hi could someone please advise me on how to value s/h dolomite spares, my thinking is that it's value is scrap value. The question is for divorce purposes

The best way is to look on ebay and see what things sell for - if at all! Prices are far higher than they were a few years ago, as there are fewer left, however there are also potentially less people in need of them too.
Looking at the new price - if available, sometimes helps too.

As Dave says above, filter ebay search results for 'sold' items only, but remember the person prepared to pay that much in a competitive environment now already has one, so the next sale by rights should be for less.

What parts do you have.

I'm looking for a genuine fuel pump for late Sprint, so I can remove the lever from it. I need a short lever I believe, and the new pumps I have, have long levers.

If it's for divorce purposes rather than to achieve the highest resale value then I'd suggest asking somebody "official" (from a car owners club with a relevant background) to give you an estimated value as a job lot. A job lot value will be less than the sum of the individual items. The other side might challenge if it's excessively high/low, but the challenge of a fair valuation then falls to them.

How about send a list to one of teh auction houses. They should be able to supply an estimate.
Alternatively put them into a local general house contents auction. Get a mate to buy them, they will fetch very little. Bingo, they have been sold and you have paperwork to prove
