    Default Looking for a good BBF 460 for a 75 Wriedt Jet Boat

    Looking for a good condition BB Ford 460 for my 75 Wriedt Jet Boat. Boat has been in the family since new and I hate to park it. I've looked into having the engine rebuilt and it will cost basically what the boat is worth so that's out the window. We have a lot of family memories and time in this boat and still take it to the river occasionally. The original 75 engine still runs but is tired, spits a lot of oil out the breathers, and gets water in the oil from somewhere. I usually change the oil every trip out because of it.

    Got anything you want to offload that will help the "Brown Beaver" live in for another 30+ years?

    Seems like you should consider getting yours rebuilt so you don't just stick an "unknown" in it? I may be able to help keep the cost down.
