    Welcome to the site. I did a couple of searches on the number with no luck. Does the engine have any other identifiers? What type of carb does it have? From the chart at this link it looks like several 454s were offered in the late 80's but it may help some.

    Where in NC are you?

    Thank you for your quick response.
    I live in greenville nc.
    carb quard jet.
    Can't find any other numbers
    The numbers I have are off Mercury Marine tag.
    I want to idenify the engine, I'm pulling it out to freshen it up a bit.
    I have 14 years experience as a mercury mechanic, back in the late 70's but the tech
    has changed a lot since then. I need to re educate my self. I want to bring the hp up to around 400. which should get me into the 70mph range. now I running in the very low 60's. thank you again Travis. I'm Wes
