    Default Make sure the ratio's are

    Make sure the ratio's are the same and steering helmet fasteners will work but why would you want to do that? The 280 is a stronger drive although it basically looks the same except for the exhaust and P/S length.

    Default "b/c I can get a good deal on

    "b/c I can get a good deal on a 250...and my 280 leaks...I think it would cost me more to have the 280 repaired, than it would to buy the 250...but if the p/s and exhaust are different, I think I'll pass...I am trying to get the most out of the boating season here in NJ..."
