Default 1984 Diplomat small block?

Haven't been on the site since I sold my restored 78' Predictor (2014') and I'm looking to purchase a 1984 what looks like a Diplomat.Tried researching on line but found no info on the motor options for that model .Current owner says it had a s/b that cracked but has replacement 350ci out of boat to replace.just want confirmation that model had the v8 option.Thanks for the help

My 82 Diplomat has the 470 in it, which Mike Combs told me was the biggest inboard they put in that boat that year. Not sure if that changed over the years. You might want to look at the brochure section and see if you can find any info there.
