Has a .030" over 454 w/a stroker crank and is at 493 cu ins I believe.
All good parts (rods etc) but dropped a valve.
Has an '06 Bravo 1 thats perfect.
Seller guesed 625 HP's. 82 mph GPS.

Once I get it home, that all comes out and goes up for sale.

Should be a fun project.

Nice looking 251!
Did the i/o only have a 57gal tank?

My '82 twin o/b 251 Convincor has a 90gal tank.
I replaced it in 2016 with a new one when replacing floor and cabin. Orig tank was 98gal, but sending in exact dimensions to the tank manufacturer (near Jersey Shore), resulted in a 90gal tank. I presume adding baffles and thicker alum are reason for losing capacity.

Last year Demag replaced my transom (pour in) and stringers up into cabin (discovered they were worse than previously thought in 2016), and floor again, and we're finishing off the cabin fitments this Winter.
That, and an engine rebuild, and I should be ready to go by Spring.

Good luck with the build. Reach out to Demag, Droptop, Ramifications or I if you want to get input on all the work done to our twin o/b Convincors in last few years.

Thx for all the help guys and sorry for the delayed reply.
Messages were going to spam.

Sold the exhaust today,and a friend has spoken for entire outdive system.

Motor is still assembled and unspoken for.
mudshark, call me if interested. 937-571-1239

I will open up the motor for an autopsy as soon as my new shop is built or weather breakes. Both looking like spring ;(

ezstriper, thats what he told me. Said it dropped a valve this time.
He was sick of writing the checks for little on water time.
The Stainless exhaust would have passed as new!

knarloid, 67 gls. You can see the ID tag under the rear bench seat.

Im going to start a new thread on the conversion/restoration.
