ID:	19100 Complete from crank mounted pump to the VD flange. Shaft flange is there also. Top mounted starter and exhaust manifolds and risers. Front engine mounts included. That would be a 1:51 VD. Had 40 hours on it when it was removed and a new intake manifold and all new rings and bearings were installed. 0 hrs since. $3000 without gear, $4000 with. Have some SS exhaust manifolds for an extra $400.

      Bring me a clean boat and a helping hand and we will be done in 1 hour. Hook up some hoses, 8 lag bolts, 4 flange bolts and plug in the harness, done.

          Is the motor a running take out or rebuilt?

          We just picked up a 26’ open. We have the console to rewire and tanks out for replacement. Yhe boat has a rebuild with 30 or so hours but It would be the perfect time to go with the 383.

          Good of luck with the sale.

            It was a total rebuild. I put it in my 26 and at 40 hours the crossover under the aluminum intake manifold fell off. Thought I blew the engine and took it out and brought it to the engine shop. Put a new manifold on and the builder, for whatever reason, took it apart and put it back together. Never put it back in a boat. He put in new bearings and rings. Has Harlan Sharp roller rockers and a little cam.

                  Getting on plane was great. You could feel the torque. Top end was 4 MPH faster and 3000 RPM was 3 MPH faster and 1 GPH more. Best engine I ever had in a 26. [ I have had a few].

                      I would expect the carburetor would need some attention after sitting for a few years. Take apart and new gaskets?

                        Jon, I know that a Chevy 5.7 (350 cu in) can have a stroker kit installed and become a 383 but I read an article several months ago where this fellow was describing taking a Ford 351 and ending up with a 383 also..... When you think about it there is only one cubic inch difference with the two engines before installing the stroker kits so who am I to claim he was wrong in his assessment of cubic inches when he finished his engine build. That was my reason for asking Jerry what his was and I was just pulling Jerry's leg about betting it was a ford knowing how he has owned so many Ford Shamrocks.

                            Thanks Damon, I guess that fellow may have had a typo that I read......I've been a Chevy guy my whole life so I never really a lot of attention to what Ford did with their engines. I wish that I could remember where I read that article so that I could go back and read it again.

                            What does the Stroker Kit do for the engine? More torque?

                        • #15
                          Longer push, longer burn, more power. Ain't no replacement for displacement. The strokers in marine applications are built for the torque. HP doesn't mean much for us. My 351 in the 26 now is perfect. Put the stroker in and the difference is obvious immediately. It just doesn't have to work as hard to give the same power output.
