Are you prepared to spend $25-3500 to have a slowish boat?

If the motors been sittin awhile id reccomend changin all the gaskets. Something i wish i would have done right off the bat with mine. Make sure it has a gate valve off the pump to drop the water pressure to the motor down to make sure you dont push any by the gaskets and you should be good to go

The article most people follow (myself included) when building a 455 for marine use is The Practical Olds by Timm Jurincie that was published in the June 2006 edition of Hot Boat.  It details the steps he takes to build a reliable and moderately powerful Olds 455. 

The only link to the article that I know of is on another forum so I'm hesitant to post that link here (most forums don't like cross-linking).  Google "Practical Olds" and the 1st 2 results have links posted. ;)
