OMC Stern Drives

OMC Sterndrives

Beginning in the late 1960’s, OMC has been one of the leaders in the engine and sterndrive market. In the mid 80’s OMC or Outboard Marine Corporation introduced the OMC Cobra, a sterndrive that was modeled after the leading Volvo outdrives. We stock OMC Stern Drives for all of the OMC models including OMC Cobra, and the mechanical and electric shift OMC Stringer.

OMC Cobra Outdrives

In 1985 OMC redesigned their sterndrive product and named it the Cobra, after the expiration of a few Volvo Penta patents. OMC Cobra outdrives built from 1986-1993 are all virtually identical to each other except for the gear ratios. The upper Cobra gearcases come in six different ratios while the lowers are available in only one except for pre 1990 2.3 and 3.0 litres.

OMC Stringer Full Mechanical Shift Outdrives

The second generation OMC Stringers or OMC mechanical shift stern drives were produced from 1978-1985. All of the later (1981-1985) sterndrives were full mechanical shift while some of the earlier (1978-1980) outdrives were hydro-mechanical. These early units can supercede to a full mechanical design by purchasing a full mechanical shift cable and altering the shifting cap.

EXCELLENT - - I have purchased from Crowley Marine in the past and their products have always been top notch. They ship immediately and package items with care. They are true Professionals. I would not be able to keep my old items running smoothly without them. Thanks -

Problem fixed: Rebuilt carburetor & recoil starter. Replace fuel pump & filter unit. Replaced throttle cam.
Accomplished all necessary repairs using replacement parts ordered from Crowley Marine. I have been using this wonderful ole trolling motor for over 4
8 years now. It has done me no wrong. The last fishing trip it began to act up. I was on a 2 week fishing trip to Montana so a little JB weld got me through the trip. It was time to finally do a little repair work on the old gal. I rebuilt the carburetor and the recoil starter spring and upper unit. The fuel pump was leaking- JB Weld closed it up until I could replace with a new unit. The throttle cam was worn to the point it wasn’t allowing full throttle. A new cam fixed the problem. All parts were ordered from Crowley Marine. Getting old replacement parts is becoming harder and harder to find. Crowley Marine really helps in locating necessary replacement components.

Price is fair, service is fine, but reported stock is not accurate making for slow delivery
