Customer Question
I HAVE A 28...

I HAVE A 28 BERTRUM WITH 351 FORD LOST A ENGINE CAN I REPOWER WITH 6 .0 EASILY

Mechanic's Assistant: Sometimes things that you think will be really complicated end up being easy to fix. The Marine Mechanic I'm going to connect you with knows all the tricks and shortcuts. Tell me a bit more about what's going on so the Marine Mechanic can help you best.

I DONT WANT TO REBILD THE FORDS BUT WILL THE 6.0 FIT WITH OUT A COMPLETE IN THE HULL . WILL IT MATCH UP WITH THE TRANYS , VELVET DRIVES ECT.

Mechanic's Assistant: Is there anything else important you think the Marine Mechanic should know?

THATS IT FOR NOW

What kind of 6.0 are you planning on putting in this boat?

S​o a modern GM based 6.0 engine? This would work as long as you also replace the bellhousing and flex plate. Of course you will also need to rework the exhaust and some of the wiring. And you will need the engines complete, including mounts and bolt ons. There is really nothing interchangeable between the engines.
