What sort of nick is the Yamaha in? Must be getting on a bit![/QUOTE]

Let him get over the glass work before you start worrying him about the engine lol!!!!

That's the 421sti by the looks so less stressed than the 24 valve versions & hopefully the boats spent it's life slowly decaying while the engine remained unused

Beamishken yes its the 421 engine, replaced a few years ago now. Only just over 100hrs then boat laid up and left to fall apart round the new engine !! bad news for the previous owner but good news for me, have sold some parts that I didn't need as they are going to be replaced so the current spend on the project including the purchase price is just 4100

That was a bargain engine alone is worth 5k I think the achilies heal is the raw water pickup which is too small but cured by fitting a thro hull scoop
I just bought a 7.4 delta minus it's engine & can't decide weather to fit a 421 I have or a merc 250 D-Tronic I have

I would stick the yam back in it . 421 onwards is ok the pipe diameter is bigger the 420 which was only inch on the seawater side .

I was leaning towards the yam but I'd need to either make an adapter to fit a mercruiser v8 Bellhousing or find a yam inner transom shield as im using a bravo drive, spline is the same but rear mounts on Bellhousing are different
