    Anybody have a source or idea on replacing a blown engine on our Sea Ray 16ft xr 175 Merc Jet Boat.

    Or cut losses and get a different used one and sell the current hull and trailer?

    Welcome to the forum.

    Most engines can be fixed, rebuilt or have short and long blocks available, for component replacement. Which engine do you have? Do you want a crate engine or can you preform the work (engine and component swap) yourself?

    Ty for your reply. We have the 175HP Merc XR@ Sport Jet. One of the cylinders had complete failure with a hole blown through it. We could do the work ourselfs( or have a mechanic that could here in Michigan)

    You should be able to get a rebuilt engine from Jasper. If there are no dealers in your area, I can arrange to have it shipped to you. Look for the model and serial number on the block to make sure you get the correct replacement.

    Dave what is the engine? Is it an Optimax or a Black Max powerhead dropped on a jet? In either case there are several remanufactures and suppliers of short and long block assemblies.
