Way to go!

I paid for my dirt bike racing by doing that in the 70s, and my little boats over the past years by messing with old Merc OBs.

Lots of SB Chevy parts out there to convert those weirdos Chris Crafts to "normal" engines.

Went and checked these out friday, stored without distributors on either engine, no carb on one, rusty dipsticks,missing parts left and right. I passed. Altbough it was probably worth it, its more work than would be worth it to me.... i Went up to duluth and cruised lake superior for the weekend, 318 ran perfect as usual!
