    Default Are marine engine blocks unique

    78 Ski Nautigue. Engine failure this summer so we're planning a rebuild pending a good result with the magnaflux. If we do need a new engine, can I source any block or is a marine block itself fundamentally different?

    Marine blocks are cast from the same molds as industrial and truck blocks but have more nickel content in the nodular iron

    If it was a standard production, GM or Ford, there is nothing 'special' about the blocks used for marine engines....high nickel discussions are tribal knowledge...
