Re: crusader 350 hp engines and trannys

I think they are 2to5to1 they are valvet drive type w/gear reduction on the 454s . I think 350hp each is plenty of power for the sea skiff . I have pictures but i don't have a clue how to post them,the boat is pictures are already on this site under( new owner needed in Cleveland ohio )
