Hi, have a 4.3 vortec that was purchased in pieces the engine number is OF873871, trying to find out if the cam which is stamped 7324 over 18 over6038 is the correct one for this marine motor? also the balance shaft is missing, should I buy a new shaft and have it balanced to suit the motor when the motor is rebuilt or could I use a second hand one?(would it be close enough to use?) any tips/tricks for rebuilding this motor would be appreciated as I not rebuilt a marine application engine before. also would anyone out there know what year this motor was manufactured?, many thanks for your time, -- Waugh.

Waugh, the information you have requested would be obtainable through an engine rebuilder in your area, they generally have all the specs on hand along with any cross reference that may be needed. The approximate year according to the serial number would be 1996-1997, we do not have any used parts for the missing shaft but appears we can special order a new one from Mercruiser.
