I had a 30 scarab sport years ago .similar vintage .Hanging two refrigerator v-8 erudes was a mistake I made .It wasjust too much weight on the back .It ran a little faster at wot than the 200 mercs I replaced ,but at anything below close to full throttle it was hanging it's ass low...don't buy the old v-8's MO

What setback did you have with the two V8's? Two Erude V8's are not as heavy as two small blocks and legs but probably you would want to run them on the transom with no setback.

Make sure your transom is sound and some transom knees would be a good idea.
