    Default 83 Eliminator anybody know the old owner

    This boat was bought on Craiglist for $3500 now having reg issues and getting the run around from the seller who i guess is some kid... They did nothing but tell lies about this boat on the phone, $3000 in top end work and they dont even know what heads he payed for Seemed fishy to me but i wasn't there to look at it.

    Now its sitting in my yard, full of water in the oil and i even think we spun a bearing with only about ten min run time Would like to find the old owner because this kid did not register it correctly and were getting impatient with his " i will call you back" and does not!!!!! here's a few pics..





    Boat came from AZ and bought it in Cali

    if anybody can point me to the old owner, dont want nothing from him except a few min conversation

    If a BBC check that the intake manifold gaskets are properly seated. Wish I could help you with the previous owner question.

    used anything, buyer beware. pull the engine and do your own teardown.

    "but i wasn't there to look at it." (see first post)

    I believe it is not his boat, he is just helping a family member/friend out and is getting stuck with the helping to bail someone out of a bind and repair the boat. good luck with your quest 2sav

    Arizona will give you the info on the last owner, as long you can show you bought it. Arizona does not title a boat, so you just need to show proof of ownership. Look up Arizona department of fish and game.

    How about the trailer? That is a DMV thing.

    The boat looks nice. Metal to Metal is not a good thing
