  • 470 for sale

    I acquired a boat with a 470 in it. It has 8 hours on a rebuild, but there's a catch...


    Complete 470 engine and outdrive with controls.

    Took engine and outdrive to mechanic for review:

    Outdrive: good for parts. Upper gears shot

    Previous owner had engine rebuilt, but still needs some work. Maybe rings haven't seated yet, I honestly don't know. Hour meter said 8 hours on rebuild. See my mechanics invoice for details.

    Does have new alternator conversion.


    Make me an offer

        Why do you say that rings have not seated yet? Burns oil? Smokes? Or because of results from compression test. Based on your mechanics report it appears that whoever rebuilt it was not very well qualified.
