Mercruiser Volvo Penta V6 block question

Can anyone tell me the difference between a marine block for a 4.3 V6 and one that comes in say a Chevorlet Blazer of similar vintage? I have a 1998 Volvo Vortec engine that has a cracked block and the option on a 1999 Blazer engine in very good condition but don't want to buy it if I am wasting both mine and the sellers time. Any help would be much appreciated as I am new to this particular engine and the variations, cheers, Si
