I'm currently nearing completion of a blown 496 for my Howard runner bottom, so.......putting this T/R 468 out there for sale. I ran this boat/motor last season to a best of 103 mph. The motor pulled 6,700 with an 18 gear and 16 pitch prop. VERY strong motor. I put the motor back in the boat a few weeks ago, since I haven't completed my new blower motor. This motor is an ex- Cody Rose deal, and was in the Voodoo Canoe Howard when I bought it.
Motor info (as presented by previous owner);

You get everything you see in the pics with the exception of the motor plates & flywheel cover. This is a complete drop in deal if you have a v-drive boat. If you have a jet I will adjust the price accordingly for deletion of the pan/timing cover/water pump.
The price for this COMPLETE motor package is....................................$4,500.00. This price is firm. I will part the motor out, however only after the long block sells first. I'm asking $2K for the long block. I will crate the motor for free and work with you on shipping via/Fastenal (they are very reasonable). Jocko
