    Prefer to sell as a package as I am about to install an MPI 454 and BIII transom assy and one sale/ pickup is desirable.

    My (completely negotiable) asking price is $2200.

    The Alpha transom assy is in excellent condition throughout and does not need a thing. The Gen1 out drive installed as a new unit prior to my purchase in 2015 and still has the original paint. Impeller was replaced in 2018 and has (maybe) 10hrs of run time on it. Gear oil is fresh, no leaks, comes with transom-mounted gear oil bottle (that doesn't leak!). Shifts are as designed, clean and crisp. I believe there's a 19p prop mounted, a few spare props to go with it and a couple Quicksilver hub kits. (Will update with gear ratio once I have that info.)

    The Bravo 7.4L engine is somewhat of another story. I rebuilt the Rochester carb with ethanol-compatible parts. Both heads were rebuilt by me (due to a stuck valve on intake 5), valves were lapped, new valve guide seals installed and all associated gaskets to R&R the heads. Brand new Mr. Cool oil/ power steering cooler and new raw water pump, to name a few things. All of the deteriorated hardware was replaced with new during the head work. The engine runs and makes power and does not leak fluids of any kind however it is showing its age in the form of considerable blow by. My belief is that there are a couple stuck piston rings. Pretty much the only thing not included with the engine will be the manifolds/ elbows. I have a number of spares for this engine including a Thunderbolt IV module (sans wire harness), oil cooler, belts, possibly steering pump and possibly alternator.

    Delivery available (terms to be agreed upon)

    Please feel free to comment, ask questions or advise on what I'm missing for information.

    Thank you.

    Can't seem to find the Edit button for the 1st post.

    Outdrive gear ratio is 1.8

    Edit button is on the lower left below your “thank you” in the OP.

    Click the 3 bars and edit option should drop down.

    Good deal BTW. Good luck.

    Thank you. I see "Report" on the left side and "Reply" on the right side of the OP. Even crazier than that is, I clearly see the "Edit", "Delete" and "Report" buttons in post #3 but it does not exist on posts 1 and 2.

    Anyway, I wanted to say to any interested parties that I am willing to break these two items out if it helps with the sale. A package deal is preferred but not mandatory for this sale.

    Misread the gear ratio back when I posted on 5-28. It's 1.30.

    Still unable to edit posts 1 - 3

    I can help with delivery if need be.

    For anyone reading this, I'm far more interested in passing on a great deal to someone as I have limited storage when it comes to multiple engines and outdrives. I can move quite a bit on the asking price so please don't hesitate to send offers.
