There 500's . I wish somehow they could turn into 575's but I don't believe that will happen.

Hey Kurt,
Port Jacksonville marine will be doing the rebuilds. Kevin Brady has won my confidence in that he will make sure a good job will be done.

Hang in there. It will be a nice feeling knowing that you've got fresh power back there instead of wondering when/or if it would fail ya
Yea,I'm trying to find some positive here.

A lesson to be learned by all.

Buyer Beware!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Seems you cannot trust people to be honest about the condition of things.

Probably the worse it is the more they lie?

I have learned that you better at least do a compression check, leak down test, pull the thermostat housing and valve covers for a look.

A few hundred spent up front may save you thousands. If the seller refuses to let you spend your money, don't walk, run like hell!

Default Sorry for you also

Vagrant, Hate to hear about the motors. I just inquired about 2 500 EFI's in the parts section of OSO. Hope everything works out. I think if anything goes wrong with my EFI's I will put in twin 6.5 turbo diesels. They seem to perform very well. If I can get my boat to run as well as the dually, I will be happy.
Talk with you soon.

Vagrant, you are scaring the hell out of me. I haven't had mine out yet either. How many hours did yours have showing? I had my boat surveyed also, but due to winter layup, the engines weren't started. I wish you the best on gettng yours back together soon.
