JSRE built 280

I have a CHERRY bone stock block ( all nic/no welds ) 280 that I am starting to put together with the desirable 260 drag electrics. It will have Low Hour top pinned Wizard pistons with new TiN gold rings , Sport jet 5 petal reeds, lightened and balanced big 5250 rods, JSRE 1" spacer plate with angle cut horn and reed plates. Injectors cleaned and flowed by Brucato an A-48 style Mercury ECU stock O ringed 280 heads with 155 lbs cranking, JSRE light weight racing flywheel all fitted with new Mercury High Performance bearings and gaskets....Only "MOD" I would do if this was MY motor would be to cut the front half to increase the torque.. With the cut front half motor should make 325/335 ish reliable HP on pump gas...This motor will be built and ran in my shop so it could be un crated , bolted on and ran no fiddling with..

All for $7500.00 USD + freight...

Interested parties call Jay @ JSRE 1 281 576 5088 cst or E-mail me @ hitman6563@yahoo.com

This is a factory matching 280 block , front , half , crank and heads that were from the same motor.It has attached to it a complete 260 Drag Motor electrics , fuel system from another source. 260 HP electrics don't come on a 280 HP engines they are a retrofit that is a desired premium in the states as the 280 electrics will not turn the RPMS of this system...

The point of your question is what ? I know of VERY few 2.5 engines that are still equipted with everything OEM as it was from its origin. If your veresed in 280 2.5's the 280 with the drag electrics are of a premium in the states and are worth more on the sales market...They are MUCH more tunable and vesital for the high performance 20' or less sand bar racer application ...

So it is a parts motor ie parts from many different engines ...

The reason I asked is i've owned 6 2.5 efi's . 4 of them original that had never been touched . Engines that after re ringing them ran great without any major problems.

The other 2 engines were parts engines made from parts of different engines . These engine both blew up destroying the blocks resulting in major cost.

I'm in the market for a 280 efi for a winter project but I don't want one assembled from parts .

Jay Smith all the way, he has built his business on reputation and stands by anything he builds, rebuilds or services. With no quibbles. If I wanted another 280 I would happily part with my hard earned on the motor he has for sale.
I have had my engines over the years looked after by many marine engineers/mechanics. (I have not tried them all, I appreciate but I cant affored to keep on trying and getting let down). Not one has given me the service/advice/after care that JRSE has. The only thing I would have done over here, is gear box work done by Nick Barsch.
This is my own view, I understand that there are mechanics on this site. This is not intended as any direct criticism to any of them, just my view/personal experience as a customer over the last 11 years.

Thanks Bad Boy for the kind words , I think our work along with customer satisfaction, TITLES won, and successful Global use of JSRE engines and products speaks for itself...

I have even had people that buy NEW Drag motors through the years send them to JSRE to have them torn down and re assembled before adding fuel because they are afraid of the factory assembler with no warranty motors...

We have an old saying in the states " Don't go shootin ALL the dogs cause YOUR dogs have flees " I could care less if the parts I build a motor are from the same motor or from ten, I mike and measure every part to ensure success..

BTW : Some of engine failures or a result of customer errors also, NEVER take THAT out of the failure equation either , I have built some motors in the past for folks that should have been playing golf instead of having/owning any high performance combustion engine of any configuration.. . Now that JSRE is established I'm picky who I sell engines and do work for. After a 30 minute conversation I choose to either do the work or pass..

Good luck,
Jay @ JSRE

I've sent MANY engines to the Super Mare ( UK ) area but I never got into the freight costs ( that always was taken care of by the customer ) . I DO know that sea verses air is allot cheaper and I think it takes 14 days via sea... I also have several "tricks" to avoid the normal huge tariffs .....

Good question , maybe Bad Boy can help.. BUT he normally did shipping with 3 others customers and they sent 4 at a time...

Whole engine crate is near 72" X 48" x 36" with approx weight 400 + lbs verses power head crate 23" x 20" x 18" and weighs 225 lbs ... BIG different in weight and girth...Twice the weight and near 3.5 times the girth....Freight cost will surely reflect those differences..

I've tidied this thread up a bit, and would ask that people show some respect for someone offering something for sale. You all have the choice to buy, or not to buy.

Thanks Jon,

Things always seem to get off the beaten path when egos get involved ...

Still have the engine for sale as of this AM although I have several interested parties...Just no $$$ as of yet...

PS : I might even think about "helping" with the freight !

Cheers,
Jay
