    The LT1 short block will work! The marine parts will fit the block! I have done it before on a 1984 Galaxie with a OMC 350.

    ""The LT1 short block will work!"

    Ayuh,... I'm sorry,...
    But the LT1 is a Reverse cooled block that doesn't interchange parts with ANY of the other SBCs....

    My WAGuess is,... You were workin' on something Other than an LT1 block....

    "you have proved that automotive engs can work for marine purposes!"

    Ayuh,... Myself, nor Any of the other Regular Posters have ever stated automotive motors Can't or Aren't used in marine applications,....
    Most I/O motors are Based on automotive motors...
    But,...
    All automotive engines can NOT be installed in a boat.....
    Just Some,... And only after swapping out a few parts..."

    Default Bondo et al: Remember the m

    Bondo et al:

    Remember the man who tried to use a 350 truck engine this summer? He even tried to marinize it by changing the head gaskets and installed a marine cam but had a continuous pinging problem.

    I think he finally bought a marine engine.
