Anyone need a shortblock, set of heads, or both??

1999 L29 454 shortblock used 2 season and then has sat in my basement for nearly 10 years. $500
Gen 6 heads off a HP500 carb engine with approx. 150 hours. Sitting on a shelf for 8-9 years. $500

I've got lots of other parts too. Like to sell these parts to someone that might actually use them.
Rather someone come pick the goodies up vs. shipping.

Is that a 365mag or base 310?

I bought this VP test engine with 37 hours and ran it for 2 years in my 24' Superboat pror to replacing in with a 502MagMPI. It is the same basic engine as the Merc 7.4MPI rated 310HP at the prop/340HP at the crank. It is not the Mag but it is a better base engine than the old 330s. It has 4 bolt mains, cast steel crank, flat top hypo pistons, and roller cam valve train.

310HP 454 shortblock/base engine still taking up space. Going to start selling parts off it ie. merc bell housing and drive coupler...
