    CL - New 5.7 volvo penta complete with duo prop drive for $2500-gctid807274

    I just saw this on San Francisco area CL: https://sfbay.craigslist.org/pen/bpo/6115363750.html. Seems like a good deal to me and may be good for some BOC members. Note: I have no connection to the listing.

    Look closely at the Holley carburetor. This is an automotive carburetor. The fuel bowl "peep sites" and the external float adjustments are not USCG approved.

    Given that the carburetor is incorrect, there is a good chance that the engine has also been built for auto use..... not Marine!

        The lack of details in that add makes me think something fishy :whistle: If I had a engine/drive combo to sell I'd definately have some better pics than those and several of the drive too.

          Looks like it is the back of a van.

            There is a lot of shady business on Craigslist. Often something big is advertised at a fraction of its worth. Tractors are one big item I see all the time.

            Same post on many different Craigslist, even in other states.

            I don't know what happens if you answer one but I am sure they will try to get your money.

            Anyway, this may be one of them.
