Customer: replied 1 year ago.
can any other moter b put in without modifcations
Expert:  Tan replied 1 year ago.
The only motor you can use is the motor I gave you. Anything else is going to cost allot more as it will require modifications.
The cheapest route you can go with is the motor I posted either used or remanufactured.
This is going to be your best bet a used motor. http://www.ebay.com/itm/Mercruiser-140-3-0-GM-good-running-engine-/191664021094
