I have a 455 olds that I pulled out of my 76 Hondo jet, replacing with a BBC. When I bought the boat I was told the motor was very fresh, minimal hours since a rebuild. Had the valve covers and oil pan off and it does look nice. Oil drains in the heads have been opened up, looks like cam restrictors, standard bore and crank has been marked 10/10. Has cast pistons, not sure if they are dome or dish, but are cast and one piston looks new. Double roller timing chain, new oil pump. Motor held good oil pressure and ran flawlessly when I took the boat out before I tore it down for a resto, pushed a Jacuzzi WJ to 58.6 MPH on GPS. Has J heads, Fa block, stock cast iron intake manifold, chrome valve covers, 600 edelbrock carb, HEI distributor, Hardin Marine water plates, water outlet, even have some stainless lines and fittings that are sun faded and will go with it. Have the flywheel and driveshaft, pulleys, starter, motorola alternator that did not work, car oil pan. Harmon Marine 4 point mount, Basset OT headers that are rusted thru on the bottom of the pipes but still patchable and useable. This could be dropped in your boat and ran, pretty much everything is there. Would like to get enough out of this to get the stuff to rig my BBC, so I would gladly do some trading if you have stuff, or would like to get $900 for everything. Would prefer not to ship this, I live in Cottonwood Arizona, and Im in the Phoenix area almost every weekend. Can arrange delivery or meeting somewhere if the price is right.
