Those are smartcraft gauges. They do it all. And, like everyone else, run from that pig. Do you think it would actually run over 60?

I guess it really doesn't matter in the end if your having to replace the engines but those don't look like 496's to me. It looks like 496 covers sitting on older non closed cooling motors. Am I just seeing things??

Wow, good catch. Yes look at the exhaust manifolds as well. Hmmm, now that you bring it up they look as if they may be 7.4l mpi 300HP! Maybe this was a repo and they swapped to fool the bank?

I was looking for the story behind this boat because I will no longer believe an auction seller again in my life! I have big bravo power sitting in my garage, so that is not the issue. The issue is if the used engines have any value, and if this thing has been on the bottom of the ocean or not.

Guess I will have to make a call to them and feel it out.
