Default 98 2800 scr

Im looking at purchasing a1998 2800. The motor is missing, but does come with The Bravo 3.
Hes asking $3000 for the boat and $2000 if I want the Bravo. Obviously, I want the Bravo.
It had the 7.4 motor, and I THINK(?) I want to stay with that.
Any thoughts?
But my real question is: when Im looking for a replacement motor, do I only look for a (marine) engine, or can I was a standard car/truck engine. Has anyone done this before. Will the exhaust manifold cross over? Etc.
Thanks for any info you can give me.

Oh this question again. ��

Does it come with any of the engine components, carb/injectors, alternator, raw water pump, distributor, … if no you are looking at big costs. A non marine engine cannot be raw water cooled as it doesn’t have the right components to prevent corrosion so a closed cooling system would be needed, add $1K. You cannot safely use a non marine carb/injection system, alternator, starter, ignition as these are not ignition protected and the result is you may explode. IMO bargain boats seldom are.

I have the same boat and I agree with Mike. You should install another 7.4 Mercruiser and the bravo 3 for 2000 is a good deal unless it's damaged or corroded.

A single Engine 2800 SCR would have been a 7.4L Mercruiser.

Direct replacement will be:
