    I would have a leakdown test done on each engine. I would also get oil samples, and send them to a lab. They can tell a lot from samples.

    What about the drives, bravo 1's.. should I plan for 1000 hours out of those?
    A complete rebuild doing all new components such as forged pistons, rings, bearings, upgraded camshafts, timing chains, all new valves, springs , valve locks, gaskets, rebuild on carbs, ect... and machine work, to do it correctly your looking at minimum $6,500.00 per engine. By the time you figure all misc. stuff like rebuilding raw water pumps, new ignition components and misc. will ad up. The $6,500.00 number is primarily engine parts and labor. Not the extra marinizing components.

    I think you can replace the motors with new for less than 7500 each, they are 330 HP 454's.
    I'd be willing to bet that he left a "0" off and it's 400 hours.
    I can't talk about it right now, it's being handled by the Postal Inspector. Those guys don't mess around!

    My dad's cruiser has more than 1700 hours on each engine. 454's. They still run good, but he goes WOT maybe twice a year. Changes the oil once a year.
