Older OMC Outdrive ?'s

3 posts in this topic

Alright a couple of questions on the "new" boat.

Does anywhere sell new props for the older (my boat is a 75') OMC outdrive or am I limited to scouring online auctions and Marine dealerships?

The shaft seal on the power trim gearbox is gone. Are these difficult to replace?

Do you need to run the special OMC gear lube for OMC electric shift lower units or will a good quality aftermarket lower unit lube work?

Does anyone know what the recommended WOT RPM is for a marine 351W-235 hp?

For the prop try

The seal? Are you talking about the tilt quadrant on the outside of the boat that raises and lowers the outdrive? That is not a power trim unit and that outdrive MUST ALWAYS BE RUN IN THE FULL DOWN POSITION. If that is the seal you are taliking about, it's not too hard to replace. You remove the tilt gear and lift the drive up and secure it. remove the tilt clutch housing cover to access the seal.

You must use OMC's Premium Blend gear lube. This is not to be confused with any other "premium blend" gear lube such as Quicksilver Premium Blend gear lube. OMC specifies their Premium Blend oil as it is special for electric shift gear cases.

WOT throttle range for the ford v-8's is 3800-4200 rpm.

Thanks that clears things up. I've never owned a boat with an OMC outdrive before last week.

Yup I'm referring to the tilt on the left side of the boat with the gear drive. I'll check BRP to see if they stock any parts.

    •   Exactly! As long as politics ( And trump) stick around old silly town will still be around. 
    •   I did consider texture changes as well and all I can tell so far is that folks sharing online recipes and photo's didn't have serious issues with that.  They did mention having to cook out absorbed liquid when they heated up the canned slices.  When I get around to my experiment I believe I'll do some jars with fatty slices and some with cased sausage.
    •     If it gets here anytime in the near future, del is either going to have to start making trips to Mexico or go visit Dr Juice..      

    • I'm thinking the same thing, it's coming.
    •     As of 2013, (four years ago) 58 percent were in favor of legalizing marijuana too, and the FDA and DEA haven't even budged...
    •   1.  You don't have to be Michelangelo to know that Jackson Pollock was a terrible painter. 2.  Yes, that's 100% true. 
    •   Actually he is a hypocrite in 2 different ways.   1. He called out someone else's skill but was unwilling to show us how it is done. 2. He likely only called you out because you are a liberal picking on his republican buddy. If someone like Uncle Bill had made that picture he would have probably just "liked" it and moved on.
    • Don't forget, single payer is what Trump was backing many years ago. He may be angling to get it now.   Think about it. As far a partisan politics go, this would be a genius move for the republicans if the think tanks could come up with a way to spin it to the base.    Whatever party passes single payer will solidify at least a couple of consecutive presidential terms like the Democrats did.
    • I don't think he's a hypocrite, even though I question his skills as he failed to even identify the tool I poorly used.  He's just capable of identifying objectively poor photoshopping and a tool for pointing it out.  There isn't much that can change that.
    •   58% are already in favor of single payer. I bet after last week's fiasco, those numbers go up even higher.
