    I think from seeing that, it could run again without much if any machine work.

    Yeah, I'd agree, if the block checks out, renew the reciprocating assembly, the bores and put it back together. Likely nothing a good boil and a hone wouldn't take care of, assuming you're not asking more than 250 HP out of her.

    pity your half a world away, i have a 225 4 barrel mercruiser block and heads sitting in the yard. the blocks used to sell for good money used because they are a high nickel content block, a lot stronger than a car block.
