I recently bought a boat that and it turned out the engine was totally unusable, and not rebuildable. ....ok, we move on.
I have the chance to buy a 454 engine out of a running truck.
I was told not to use an engine from a vehicle because the clearances are too tight and it will have bearing problems most likely.
Is this true?
I really wanted to start buying BBF parts, but there is not as much available for it, so I am thinking just buy a nice used BBC engine and be done with it.
I need an engine for my boat so I can go to the power tour next week.
There is a blown 468 that just came up for sale, but it's 9 hour drive to get it.
Anyone else in San Diego that has a BBC they want to sell?
