PMC motor is out- looking for new power for Riviera

Postby Yakima » Fri Jul 29, 2016 8:11 pm

PMC tells me that due to new EPA rules, all new power sales (note, this doesn't apply to repower) must have catalytic converters. Fine with me. However, PMC design team has to review boat plan to authorize sale of new power plant to me- and there is no time frame for that to happen. Hence, I need to find another power source. I was thinking their small block 350 Chev engine would be just more than enough for the Riviera. Any -I'm in the Pacific Northwest.





If I could only have my old Porsche back, I could steal the engine out of it!

Many thanks!

I've been very happy with my Crusader 5.7 mpi. I purchased the Captain's Choice with a Liberty A transmission.

Awww balony,
the actual year of manufacture determines whether or not it needs the emissions criteria.
when you 'laid the keel' is the year of manufacture, not, the 'year you launched'
your salesman is trying to tell you the year you launch is the year of manufacture.
make him check his data.
Oak is over rated, everything about it takes extra time; then it warps, splits or checks !!! :roll:

1. Find another dealer
2. You are repowering
3. I wouldn't debate, W.C. Fields said it best: "never smarten-up a chump".
