look back for any recall on the rear axle or drive line

if there was any reacalls
check with a local nissan service division see if that vehicle has been checked over (use the vin number )

you may have passed drive line warrant claim limit to years and milage

the squeaks will be dry rubber bushings. Use some wd-40 and squirt one bush at a time to find the squeak and replace that one or re-tension the nuts or bolts. could be the sway bar bushes.

I'm considering buying a 1987 Toyota supra turbo. 81k miles. What major or minor issues can I expect or need to ask owner about ?

If you ask the owner for the faults he has had expect an out right lie as to nothing is wrong with the vehicle. With such low mileage better to ask why he is selling it. I suggest that the seller produces proof that he actually owns the car and is capable of selling it legally. Next take it for a good run ( not around the block) and be critical in listing all noises and problems you find. Next take it to a reputable mechanic for a frank appraisal of the faults and see what he comes up with. Any must do repairs should be deducted from the asking price as you will be stuck with that cost.. Considering the age and the listed mileage I am suspicious that the mileage has been tampered with as most cars average 15 to 25 k per year Be very cautious also because the parts supply for an 87 car has dried up and you will most likely only get second hand parts ( Panels)

At how many miles should the alternator belt be changed?

they are supposed to be replaced at 60,000 miles, but if you run your fingers over the inside of the belt and the ribs have no cracks, you can get as much as 100,000 miles out of a belt.

I am considering buying a Honda 750 Shadow Aero with 18,000 miles. My wife looked at it today and said she thought she heard a knocking sound in the engine. It runs fine and because of hearing problems,...

Knocks, Rattles, Whining, Clunks, and Grinding noises coming from the engine are not good signs.

Light Tapping noise could be a few things.

A dirty oil filter will cause the top end to make tapping sound until the oil warms up and, then the noise goes away, that might be why you didn't hear it, but she did at first.

If the valves/rockers continue to make noise, it probably just needs the valve clearance checked & adjusted. If they continue to make noise after this, then its a sign of wear to one or more of the valve componets.(rockers worn, lifters worn etc)

With only 18000 miles, its probably just dirty oil filter.

Is $80 (CAD) a good price for used IBM 1222 printer w/ 50% toner

It's a good price, you mainly look a rubber rollers for age or wear, listen for quiet smooth printing, if you can look at the fuser rollers in the exit, look for wear and toner sticking. Print quality issues may show need for a toner cartridge.

Looking at buying a 1998 BMW 1000RT w/40K miles on it.

In short, BMW prices are directly proportional to the service history and condition.
Personally, I think $6200 is high. I bought a 2000 model RS with 15K miles for $3200, full service history, lots of factory extras - panniers, top box, tank bag, screen, seat, etc. It had a little road rash on one fairing panel, but that was $300 to put back to perfect.
I would expect to pay around $6K for a similar vintage LT, not an RT. IF it was mint, maybe 6K is the right price... I would look for between $4500-5500 for a tidy one - good tires/brakes, great exhaust, immaculate paint, full BMW service history, warranty.
