So the Chris Craft I just recently purchased, the motor is gone, no good.
Apparently the previous owner let it sit over winter with water in the engine and the risers and block are cracked, leaking.
I'm needing the find a 1980 305K Reverse rotation replacement engine, new used or rebuilt.
any and all help and advice would be greatly appreciated.
thanks so much,
The 305 can be replaced with any small block chevy motor (283,302.305,307, 350,383) as long as its the correct rotation. I think it will be easier and cheaper to go with a 350. The 350 has all the same accessory mounting locations as your 305.
If you're replacing the motor anyway, why do you need a reverse rotation? Guessing that would only cost more.
Was this a surprise, or did you know beforehand that the motor was gone?
