Hello, my name is***** you for allowing me to assist you today.
Always do a compression test when looking at a marine engine. Make sure that all cylinders are within 15% of each other.
The 5.7 engine has been around along time. There are not really any big issues with the engine as long as it is maintained properly.
Make sure that you change the oil and water pump impeller every year and the engine will last for a while.
