Anyone ever put one of these in a Mastercraft? I wonder how much it weighs...

Wouldn't this bolt up to a 72C Velvet Drive?

here's a similar thread of a rebuild using a different diesel...

I was thinking this would be a more straightforward conversion than the one above. The block on eBay is a GM block. So, I was thinking if it came time to re-power from my 454, it would be a unique option that would just drop in.
