    Converting to Diesel power. Have a complete, good running (NO SMOKE) Volvo Penta 260 motor for sale. Its youre basic GM 350 V-8. Its a 1987 with approximately 1800 hrs on it and been well maintained. Newer Holley Carb, petronixs electronic ignition+ spare filters, cap and rotors ect... First $300 takes it.

    JD if you don't sell and are willing to take $100.00, I'll take it. Is it RW cooled? If so, what condition are the manifolds and risers?



  3. CaptnJD

    The manifolds and carb alone are worth the $300. Yes it is raw water cooled. Always flushed with flush kit and Saltaway regularly.

    What's your bottom line on the engine?

    Geees, Dude, give him the $ 300.00 man, thats a hell of a deal, we spent about $ 9000.00 on ours a couple of years ago, just the carb is worth the $ 300.00 probably, not including all the other stuff......

    Just my .02

    The mechanic said its worth at least $1,000.00 and has an interested buyer already. So I guess that I need to retract my Post/Deal..... Sorry to get your hopes up, but I gota grab what I can if ya know what I mean..

    I should have offered you the $300 and been done with it-my fault!! It is a more than fair deal. If your deal doesn't go through, contact me and I'll pick it up. Sorry for the procrastination and low offer. I'm a little short right now, but I can manage the $300.00. With some recent engine troubles it may come in handy.
