I'll spend some time searching down the used power head route then, so basically any 50hp Mer/Mariner block from around the same period should be a near enough fit?

Would there be any implications to fitting a 50hp powerhead with the magnum's carbs?

I'd just use the whole lot-50hp carbs as well. They were crankshaft rated so you'll only get a gain of around 4-5hp anyway.
Need spares,consoles,consumables,hire,training or even a new boat?

Had a bit of a breakthrough with the engine. It seems it's sheared part of the reed casing which apparently is normally quite easy to weld up.....
