    Short answer, there are several differences. Use a marine engine.

    If the block cracked why not get a new block and reuse the heads. Get a new or used block. It is a gm 305 block

    I’ve used these folks several times when someone would bring me one that froze. https://www.michiganmotorz.com/305ci...nt-p-3621.html

    I did one once where I sourced a used block, had it machined, can bearings brass freeze plugs, etc, throw in n the extra time disassembling and reassembling and itís a wash against the new engine

    Might try Marine Repair Shop off O road in Laurie. He had a bunch of those motors pulled out of junk boats sitting on pallets last time I went by there. 5733749333
