Converting an I/O motor to Inboard

Postby DuckHunterJon » Thu Aug 09, 2018 6:53 am

Hi all, starting to think about a new build, specifically about the power plant. I'm looking to build an inboard (leaning toward a Monaco, but not positive), and in looking around, I see many used I/O motors for sale. I actually have a chance at a 4.3L Mercruiser/Alpha 1 combo with very low hours for a very decent price. If I remove the outdrive, what besides a transmission would be required to convert it to inboard use? Just trying to guage whether the savings up front would be worth it over buying something specific. Thanks!
