Complete Marine Engines

We love rebuilding inboard marine engines! We currently rebuild for over twenty different marinas throughout the Illinois waterways. As you can see below we carry a large variety and inventory on Marine engines built by Ford, General Motors and Chrysler. These engines over the many years were used in Christ crafts, Volvos Pentas, Crusaders and Mercruisers. They go back to the early 1960`s thru to the 2008 models. These engines are built for marine us only and will not work for any other applications. They come with most marine gasket sets to complete the installation process. All cast iron camshafts are replaced with new marine powered camshaft profiles. Brass freeze plugs and stainless steel head gaskets are also used to complete our marine engines. Read More
