    engiine brand question-gctid358125

    OK I have 'US Marine' Engines but never seem to be able to pull parts up on my google searches.

    Am I a Chrysler? Mercruiser?

    I even found a place to enter the serial # of the engine and returned no results

    they are 454's

    US Marine is a rebuilder that offers almost any brand that you can think of. If you email them the serial #, they should be able to answer your questions. The color of the engine may also be a key. What drive do you have on it? The engine will usually be of the same manufacturer.

        Joe, Bayliner was using OMC during this year and OMC was big into the 460 Fords back then. Was the 1989 3485 Avanti using any BB Fords by chance?

        Not sure about I/B's with V-drives nor Marine Power w/ BB Fords, however.

        Can you post photos of your engines?

                  Yep, pretty standard looking BBC with what appears to be a Q-jet and Prestolite ignition distributor.

                  The Marine Power unique items may be the CC System T-stat housing configuration and the exhaust manifolds.

                  Other than those immediate items, much of what you may need should be pretty much industry standard.

                    Rick he called them US marine not marine power.

                    Having said that his thermostat housing , mounting of the fuel pump and the throttle cable mount looks identical to mine which are marine power engine so maybe that is what he has.

                    Marine power engines of that period are not the same as those of today. A completely different company. I believe that perhaps the were struggling back then and the name may have been sold various times.

                    Now my engines were made by marine power but were really chriscraft engines.

                    Do your engines have cast iron oil pans? If so the are the chriscraft engines. If that is the case go here for parts

                    Even if you don't have a cast iron pan they still maybe I chriscraft engines.
