    Anyone know of a good remanufactured engine seller? I have found a couple of sites online, but was wondering if the brothers knew something I didn't.



    The engine I am looking for is an 85 Buick/GM/OMC 3.8 v6 I believe it is a 229 cu. in.

    Thanks!

    Just make sure someone isnt selling you a car engine.. Make sure it is a marine engine.
    Marine engines are put together with different parts.
    In boat use, engines are run alot harder then they are in automobiles.
    From idle to wide open and extended full throttle operation a car engine wont hold up long.

    Are you talking for an I/O, or for an air boat?
