If anyone else is looking for some 8.1's, they are Volvo's and brand new, shoot me a PM.

Hi guys, I am the lucky one.
Thank you again Chris for the Great Deal! Real Great Guy! It was funny the way it happened. I was ready to buy a set of engines off Ebay and I thought- Maybe I'll try OSO parts swap one more time before I put in a committed bid, and bam!,there they were, the engines I'd been waiting for all spring and summer.
I'm going to be installing them in a 1991 38' fountain Fever. Here are some pics of the boat. I dont believe Chris has even seen these.
Take care.

Well Water, now I feel better That is a real nice rig there, but those 496's may be just a bit under powered?! LOL! I think you'd better reconsider.

You runnning that Fountain in OH?? I'd love to see it (pics) when its completed. What did it have for power prior to this? Why are you re-powering?

Guess it was meant to be the way it turned out .... good score!

No $hit tbone ,,, could hardly believe my eyes when I saw it about 2hrs after it was posted on OSO. Proceeded to delicately approach my wife, with a bunch of flowers, and great idea where I could spend another $7995.00 of her money ... she didn't want the flowers!~ LOL
