Parts for those are not too difficult to come by.

There is a better than good chance that it does not have hydraulic trim (optional believe it or not) but rather the standard worm drive tilt motor (major downfall of the Penta).

The only reason I would talk you out of that boat is because of the transom cutout. NOTHING else will fit in that hole.

Mercruiser Alpha/Bravo drives, Volvo SX, Yamaha outdrives, OMC Cobra and some of the old Hardin marine drives all use the same transom cut out. Making a change a piece of cheese.

Hate to say it, but I would walk.

Don't buy it unless you can steal it for $2000 and pay for an upgrade.

A new 275 HP Mercruiser repower package will cost you in excess of $9000. You also have to replace the transom to do the swap. Figure another $2500 if you got a smoking deal. My math works out to over $13,000.

Pass.
