CLEANING, INSPECTION, AND
REPAIR
GENERAL 11\ISTRUCTIONS
Clean all parts, except float and float valve, in
solvent and blow dry with no more than 138 kPa
of shop air. Do NOT dry parts with a cloth as lint
3Y cause trouble in the reassembled car-
ouretor. Be sure all particles of gaskets are re-
moved from gasket surfaces. Flush all passages
in the carburetor body with solvent and remove
any gummy deposits with OMC Engine Cleaner .
Certain solvents will not remove this gum which
accumulates, particularly in the f loat chamber
and on needle valves.
litffi!;"li l NOTE
Do not use OMC Engine Cleaner (OMC Engine
Tuner) on rubber or similar parts.
FLOAT AND NEEDLE VALVE
a. Inspect float and arm for wear or damage. If
the cork float has become oil-soaked, discard
it and install a new one. Check float arm
wear in the hinge pin and needle valve con-
tact areas. l=leplace if necessary.
b. Inspect the inlet needle valve for grooves,
nicks, or scratches. If any are found, replace
float valve assembly. See Figure 2-30. DO
NOT attempt to alter the shape of the needle
valve.
c. Check the float with a magnifying glass; if
the seat is nicked, scratched, or worn out-of -
round, it will not give satisfactory service.
See Figure 2-31. The valve seat and valve
are a matched set; if either is worn, both
parts must be replaced. Use a new sealing
washer when reinstalling the needle seat .
NEEDLE VALVES
a. Inspect the tapered end of t he needle valves
for grooves, nicks, or scratches; replace if
necessary. See Figure 2-32.
b. DO NOT attempt to aher the shape of the low
speed valve .
ENG LISH
CARBURETOR BODY
a. Clean out all the jets and passages, and the
venturi making sure no gum or varnish
deposits remain. Dry after cleaning with com-
pressed air. Keep clean for final reassembly.
b. Check all gasket surfaces for nicks,
scratches. or distortion. Slight irregularities
can be corrected with the use of a surface
plate and emery cloth.
c. Check throttle and choke shafts for exces-
sive play. Check operation of choke and
throttle valves to be sure they correctly shut
off air flow, yet move freely without binding.
Replace carburetor if valves or shafts are
excessively worn or damaged.
DNOTE
The threaded edges of the choke and throttle
valve attaching screws are staked during car-
buretor assembly to prevent loss during op-
eration. Disassembly of these valves is possible,
but replacement of the carburetor body i s
recommended.
CORE PLUGS
a.
b.
c.
If necessary, remove core plug to clean out
slow speed orifice holes. If leakage occurs at
a core plug area, a smart tap with a hammer
and flat end punch in the center of the core
plug will normally correct this condition.
If leakage persists, drill a 3 mm hole through
the center of t he core plug to a depth of not
more than 1 ,5 mm below its surface. With a
punch, carefully pry out t he core plug.
Inspect and clean the casting contact area. If
nicks, scratches, or an out-of-round condi-
tion exist, the casting will have to be
replaced. If casting opening is normal, apply
a bead of OMC Adhesive "M" to the outer
edge of a new core plug. Place the new core
plug in the casting opening, convex side up.
Flatten to a tight fit with a flat end punch and
hammer. Check f or l eakage.
LEAD SHOTS
If leakage occurs at a lead shot area, follow these
corrective measures:
a. If leakage is slight, a smart tap with a ham-
mer in the center of the lead shot will nor-
mally correct this condition.
b. If 1 eakage sti II exists, remove the lead shot
with an appropriate sharp tool.
c. Clean and inspect casting opening. If the
casting opening is normal, install a new lead
shot in casting opening and flatten out w1th
it, I ight hammer taps. Check for leakage.

LEAF VALVES
a. Inspect the leaf plate assembly and dis-
assemble if necessary. The leaf valves must
be free from all varnish and gum, and the
leaves must be perfectly flat and without dis-
tortion so that they form a perfect seal with
the leaf plate base.
b. DO NOT attempt to bend or repair a dam-
aged leaf; replace the complete assembly if
damaged. DO NOT under any circumstances
bend or flex the leaves by hand.
c. Replace the leaf stop if any leaves are
broken.
FUEL RECIRCULATING VALVE
When servicing the leaf valve assembly, remove
the recirculation valve leaf and clean the hole in
the plate and the leaf with OMC Engine Cleaner.
TESTING ELECTRIC CHOKE -
50/60(70(75
For effici ent operation, the plunger should be
free from corrosion so that it can move freely in
the solenoid housing. It is not necessary to lubri-
cate the solenoid plunger since the oil film will
only attract dust and cause sluggish plunger
movement. Choke solenoid should test 2,0 0,5
ohms between purple/ white stripe lead and black
ground lead. See Figure 2-33.
PRIMER SYSTEM - V-4 AND V-6
For efficient operation, the solenoid plunger
should be free from dirt and corrosion so that it
can move freely in the housing.
Primer solenoid should test 5.5 1.5 ohms
between purple/white stripe lead and black
ground lead. See Figure 2-33.
To disassemble primer solenoid remove cover
screws. See Figure 2-34. Lift off cover and
gasket. Remove seal. filter, plunger and spring.
Clean or replace filter . When reassembling use
new gasket and seal.
Replace any cracked or deteriorated primer
hoses. Clean nipples in bypass covers with
Special Tool Part No. 326623. See Figure 2-35. If
damaged replace bypass covers.
CARBURETOR REASSEMBLY
GENERAL INSTRUCTIONS
Reassemble the carburetor, paying particular
attention to the following procedure. Keep all
dust, dirt, and lint out of the carburetor during
reassembly. Be sure that parts are clean and free
from gum, varnish and corrosion when reas-
ENCiL. ISH
r..._ sembling them. Replace all gaskets and sealing
DO NOT attempt to use original
gaskets and washers, as leaks may develop
after the engine is back in use.
CARBURETOR BODY
a. 2 thru 35 - Install low speed needle valve.
Install orifice plugs. Replace float valve seat
and gasket, float valve, float, and hinge pin.
b. To check position of float, turn carburetor
body upside down, so that weight of the float
closes float needle. Top of float should be be-
tween steps on gauge no. 324891. See Fig-
ure 2-36.
c. Check for correct float drop dimension. See
Figure 2-37. With carburetor body in normal
running position, the float must drop open to
dimension shown.
d. Using a new gasket, install the float cham-
ber to the carburetor body.
e. V -4 and V -6 - Invert carburetor and place a
small drop of Loctite Part No. 290 sealant to
base of idle tube where idle tube comes out
of casting. See Figure 2-38. Allow sealant to
wick around tube but not run down tube or
run down into idle air bleed orifices. Allow to
dry.

TROUBLESHOOTING THE C.D.
SYSTEM - 4.5 THRU V-6
!he magneto capacitor discharge ignition system
IS easy to t roubleshoot. Remember these tips to
obtain fast, accurate test results:
a. Visual Inspection - Check wiring for broken,
pmched, or loose leads. Connectors should
be securely fastened and free from moisture
or water accumulation.
b. Test Equipment Condition - Be sure testers
are in working order. Many hours can be
wasted by replacing working components
needlessly.
c. Follow Procedure - Troubleshooting can seem
difficult if you vary your technique for each
problem. Many times items in the system are
overlooked because you "thought" you tested
them. By following the same procedure each
time you troubleshoot, all items in the igni -
tion system are sure to be tested.
d. Test the Complete System - There may be
occasions when more than one component is
defective. If this condition is undetected,
repeated ignition system failure may occur,
or damage to replacement parts could result.
Test everything.
TEST EQUIPMENT REQUIRED
a. Spark tester. See General Information.
b. Stevens or Electro-Specialties C.D. Volt-
meter Tester. See Figure 3-35.
c. Ohmmeter - Capable of indicating low ohms
(RX1) and high ohms (RX1 ,000).
d. Jumper Wires (4 required) . Jumper leads can
be made as shown in Figure 3-36.
e. C.D. adapter available from Stevens or
Electro Specialties.
CONNECTOR PLUGS
Two water-proof connectors, male and female
plug-in type, are utilized in the ignition system.
Each connector is secured by a retainer. The re-
tainer must be removed to unplug the connector.

OHMMETER TESTS
Ohmmeter tests are necessary to determine if
the sensor coil or charge coil have failed in a
manner which could cause ignition failure.
Ui;j\t l NOTE
Resistance readings should be checked when the
motor has completely cooled to ambient air tem-
peratl!re. The higher temperature, caused by
runnmg the motor, will increase the resistance
reading and may result in unnecessary parts
replacement.
Sensor Coil Test (Ohmmeter)
a. Separate the four wire connector between
the armature plate and power pack See Fig-
ure 3-41.
b. Insert a jumper wire to terminal "B" in the
armature plate end of the connector. See Fig-
ure 3-44.
c. Insert a jumper wire to terminal "C" in the
armature plate end of the connector. See Fig-
ure 3-44.
d. To test the resistance, connect an ohmmeter
(calibrated on low ohm scale) between the
two jumper wires. The sensor coil resistance
is good if the meter indicates 40 1 0 ohms
(4 thru 60}, 45 10 ohms (55 rope model)
Replace the sensor coil if the resistance
reading is not within this range. See Figure
3-44.
e. To test for shorts to ground, calibrate the
ohmmeter to high ohm scale. Connect the
black meter lead (-) to the armature plate
(ground). Attach the red meter lead (+)to the
" C" terminal jumper wire in the connector .
See Figure 3-45. Any needle movement
indicates the sensor coil or leads are shorted
to ground. A shorted sensor must be re-
placed, or the grounded lead repaired to
remove the shorted condition.
f . Remove the jumper wires from the connector
and continue the troubleshooting procedure.
Charge Coil Test (Ohmmeter)
a. Insert a jumper wire to terminal "A" in the
armature plate end of the connector. See
Figure 3-46.
b. Insert a jumper wire to terminal "D" in the
armature plate end of the connector. See Fig -
ure 3-46.
ENGL. ISH
c. To test the resistance, connect an ohmmeter
(calibrated to high ohm scale) between the
two jumper wires. The charge coil resistance
is good if the needle indicates 575 75 ohms
(manual start) or 475 75 ohms (electric
start). See Figure 3-46.
d. To test for shorts to ground, calibrate the
ohmmeter to high ohm scale. Connect the
black meter lead (-) to the armature plate
(ground). Attach the red meter lead (+)to the
"A" terminal jumper wire in the connector.
See Figure 3-47. Any needle movement indi-
cates the charge coil or leads are shorted to
ground. A shorted charge coil must be re-
placed, or the grounded lead repaired to re-
move the shorted condition.

IGNITION TIMING
It is possible for the ignition system to produce a
good spark and yet the engine will not start . If
the engine "pops" or "backfires" dur i ng starting
attempts, the ignition timing could be 180
degrees off. Check the following:
a. Sensor Wire Positioning - On the four wire
connector between the armature plate and
power pack be sure the white/ black stripe
wire is located in the " 8" terminal of both
connector halves.
b. Ignition Coil Wire Positioning - Check t he
three wire connector to be sure the No. 1
(TOP) ignition coil orange wire is in terminal
"8 " of connector, and that it mates with the
orange/blue stripe wire from the power pack.
4.5 thru 15 - No timing adjustments are nec-
essary. Correct wire positioning in the three and
four wi re connectors is all that is required to
maintain proper ignition timing.
IGNITION TIMING ADJUSTMENT -
20 THRU 60
a. Connect a timing light to the No. 1 cylinder.
Start and run the engine at full throttle.
b. The timing mark must align with the mark on
the flywheel grid. See Table 3 and Figure 3-
53.
c. Loosen the timing stop adjustment screw
locknut, and turn the screw in or out as
necessary to correct the timing. See Figure

OHMMETER TESTS
Ohmmeter tests are necessary to determine if
t he sensor coil or charge coil have failed in a
manner which could cause ignition failure.
lrsi\r l NOTE
Resistance readings should be checked when the
motor has completely cooled to ambient air tem-
perature. The higher temperature, caused by
running the motor, will increase the resistance
reading and may result in unnecessary parts
replacement.
Sensor Coil Test (Ohmmeter)
a. Separate the four wire connector between
the t imer base and power pack. See Figures
3-62, 3-63 and 3-64.
b. Insert a jumper wire in "A" terminal of the
t imer base end. See Figure 3-68.
c. Insert a jumper wire in terminal " B" in the
timer base end of the connector . See Figure
3-68.
d. Insert a jumper into "C" terminal.
e. Insert a jumper into "D" terminal.
f . To t est t he resistance, connect an ohmmeter
(calibrated on low ohm scale) between the
"A" and " D" terminal jumper wires, then the
"B" and "D" t erminals, and then the " C" and
"D" termi nals. The sensor coil resistance is
good if the meter indicates 17 5 ohms.
Replace the sensor coil if the resistance
readi ng is not withi n this range. See Figure
3-68.
g. To t est for shorts to ground, calibrate the
ohmmeter to high ohm scale. Connect the
black meter lead (-) to the timer base
(ground). Attach the red meter lead (+)to the
" A" terminal, then "B," then "C," then "D,"
jumper wire in the connector . See Figure 3-
69. Any needle movement indicates the
sensor coil or leads are shorted to ground. A
shorted sensor must be replaced, or the
grounded lead repaired to remove the shorted
condition.
h. Remove the jumper wires from the connector
and continue the troubleshooting procedure.
Charge Coil Test (Ohmmeter)
a. Separate two wire connector (CHARGE COIL).
b. Insert a jumper wire to terminal "A" in the
stator end of the 2 wire connector. See
Figure 3-70.
c. Insert a jumper wire to terminal "B" in the
stator end of the connector. See Figure 3-70.
ENG L.I S H
3-30
d. To test the resistance, connect an ohmmeter
(calibrated to high ohm scale) between the
two jumper wires. The charge coil resistance
should be 550 75 ohms.
e. To test for shorts to ground,calibrate the
ohmmeter t o high ohm scale. Connect the
black meter lead (-) to the timer base
(ground) . Attach the red meter lead (+) to the
" A" terminal jumper wire in the connector .
See Figure 3-71 . Observe the meter . Then
move red lead t o "B" terminal. Any needle
movement indicates the charge coil or leads
are shorted to ground. A shorted charge coil
must be replaced, or the grounded lead
repaired to remove the shorted condition.

eye protection and rubber gloves or
other non-porous hand protection
while working with Gel Seal and
Gasket Remover Compounds.
To prevent possible fire and ex-
plosion, after reassembly of any
motor, always:
Check fuel system for leaks.
Make sure electrical leads are
routed and clamped securely in
original position away from
rotating parts which may
damage insulation and make
electrical sparks.
To prevent sudden movement of the
boat when starting the motor and
possible man-overboard situations,
after reassembly of motors
equipped with a start-in-gear-pro-
tection system, test the
shift/throttle interlock systems for
proper operation before returning
the motor to the field.
CLEAI\IING, INSPECTION, AND
REPAIR - ALL MODELS
CYLINDER BLOCK AND CRANKCASE
Check cylinder walls for excessive wear and
check cylinder ports for carbon accumulation.
Cylinder walls wear in various degrees, depend-
ing on lubrication and conditions under which
the motor is operated. Major portion of wear is in
the port area and the area covered by ring travel.
Check cylinder for size and wall straightness by
using an inside micrometer. Replace cylinder
block, or rebore block for oversize pistons if wear
is in excess of 0,05 mm. See the chart below for
maximum tolerance.
Model Maximum Tolerance

Oversize pistons and ring sets are available.
Carbon accumulation in the exhaust ports
restricts the flow of exhaust gases and has con-
siderable effect on performance of the motor.
Carefully scrape carbon from cylinder heads and
exhaust ports with scraper or other blunt instru-
ment. Exhaust ports and all exhaust passages
must be free from carbon deposits to insure
maximum performance. Avoid getting carbon in
water jackets.
If equipped, check recirculation orifice in crank-
case. Clean as required. Also, clean nipples in
by-pass covers with Nipple Cleaning Tool Part
No. 326623.
55 Model - Be sure compress ion relief holes in
cylinders are clear.
With continued operation of the motor, the cyl-
inder walls will take on a glaze which reduces
the effectiveness of the seal between the piston
rings and the cylinder walls. The result will be
reduced compression and a decrease in perform-
ance of the motor. Before reinstalling the pistons,
break the glaze by using a f ine cylinder hone to
refinish cylinder walls. Use low rpm on drill with
rapid up and down movement to obta in a good
cross-hatch pattern for good oil retention . Use
hone with medium stone (220 grit). Blow out all
oil passages and drains. See Figure 4- 1.

GASKET SURFACES
Remove all traces of dried cement, using OMC
Gel Seal and Gasket Remover Part No. 390928.
In using Gel Seal and Gasket Remover, spray the
area to be cleaned and let stand for 5-10 min-
utes before cleaning off the remover. Care should
be taken to prevent overspray of Gel Seal and
Gasket Remover on painted surfaces as the paint
may be removed.
& Wear eye protection and rubber gloves or other
non-porous hand protection while working with
Gel Seal and Gasket Remover.
Check all gasket faces for flatness. Under certain
conditions, gasket faces may warp or spring,
particularly where thin sections or flanges are
employed and are subject to temperature
changes.
To check for flatness, lay a sheet of No. 120
emery cloth on a surface plate or piece of plate
glass. Place the part to be surfaced on the emery
cloth and move slowly .. back and forth several
times i n a figure 8 motion, exerting evenly dis-
tributed, light pressure. Lift part from surface
plate to observe results. See Figure 4-2.
If the surface is actually warped or sprung, high
spots making contact with the surface plate will
take on. a dull polish, while the low areas will
have retained their original state. To insure
flatness over the entire surface, continue sur-
facing until the entire gasket surface has been
polished to a dull luster . Finish surfacing with
No. 180 emery cloth.

THE USE OF GEL SEAL -
4 THRU V-6
Utili NOTE
On motors that use neoprene "spaghetti" seal.
Do not use OMC Gel Seal in place of OMC Ad-
hesive M.
SURFACE PREPARATION:
1. Remove all traces of old Gel Seal (crankcase
sealer) by using OMC Gel Seal and Gasket
Remover Part No. 390928. In using Gel Seal
and Gasket Remover, spray the area to be
cleaned and let stand for 5-10 minutes
before cleaning off the remover .
~
a=:! NOTE
Care should be taken to prevent over-spray of
Gel Seal and Gasket Remover on painted
surfaces as the paint m a ~ be removed.
& Wear eye protection and rubber gloves or other
non-porous hand protection while working with
Gel Seal and Gasket Remover.
2. Use OMC Cleaning Solvent Part No. 390905
to remove all traces of Gel Seal and Gasket
Remover. See Figure 4-8. Use a black light to
check for any remaining Gel Seal. The black
light should be used i n a darkened room.
Hold black light at an angle to the power-
head being inspected.
APPLYING GEL SEAL:
Iii) NOTE
Be sure your hands are clean and free of oil or
grease before applying Gel Seal.
1. Apply a small amount of OMC Needle
Bearing Grease Part No. 378642 to the
crankcase and cylinder block labynnth seals
to prevent engine "lock-up" from excess Gel
Seal. Again use Cleaning Solvent to remove
any oil or grease on flanges from assembly.
Oil or grease on flanges will cause leaks.
2. Squeeze out a ball of Gel Seal, 5 mm on
1
4
0
-
40 models, 6 mm on 50-60 models and
mm on 70 - V-6 models, and dab it along one
flange of the crankcase.
3. Dab the Gel Seal over one crankcase fla
1
nge
from end to end, being sure to apply sea ant
inside all bolt holes. Avoid getting closer than
6 mm to the labyrinth seals. Repeat for the
other crankcase . flange.
& Safety Related
4-4
4. On 50 - V-6 models, add additional dabs of
Gel Seal to areas of crankcase flanges where
they narrow down. See Figure 4-9.
If the motor is to be run the same day, the
surface opposite the one Gel Seal is applied to
should be sprayed with OMC locquic Primer Part
No. 384884. Wait several hours before running
to allow Gel Seal to cure. If Locquic Primer is not
used, the assembly should sit overnight before
being run.
If excess Gel Seal has caused the motor to "lock-
up," it may be loosened by turning the flywheel
with a wrench. The motor may then be started
and run with no detrimental effects.
Since Gel Seal begins curing as soon as it is
confined (especially on those motors where
Locquic Primer has been used), the assembly
should be completed and all screws torqued
promptly after assembly.
lit;i(J;![i l NOTE
If Gel Seal is allowed to set up before drawing
down and torquing screws, Gel Seal may act as a
shim. This may cause bearing misalignment,
improper bearing location, and tight armature
plate bearings.

CHECKING MOTOR
TEMPERATURE - ALL MODELS
The Markal Thermomelt Stik, a heat sensitive
stick similar to a crayon which melts on contact
w ith a surface at a specific temperature, is used
to measure powerhead temperature.
The motor is best checked when operating on a
boat . If this is not possible, run the motor in a
test tank for at least five minutes at a maximum
speed of 3000 rpm. Mark the cylinder water
jacket wit h the St ik. The mark will appear dull
and chalky. When the surface temperature
reaches the temperature rating of the Stik, the
mark will melt becoming liquid and glossy in
appearance. On some painted surfaces on which
the Stik will not leave a mark, it will be neces-
sary to hold the Stik against the surface. See
Figure 4-10.
2 thru 4.!5 - Using a 73 C Thermomelt Stik,
mark the side of the cylinder .
Uimwl NorE
DO NOT use the Stik on the cylinder head The
center of the cylinder head on the motor will nor-
ma//y run slightly hotter than 73 C.
The mark wi_ll appear dull and chalky. If the mark
melts and appears glossy, the powerhead is over-
heating. Check for a worn water pump or a
clogged or leaky cooling system.
6 thru V-6 - Two Thermomelt Stiks are necessary
to check motor - a 52 C Stik and a 73 C Stik.
With the engine at operating temperature, the
52 C mark should melt and the 73 C mark
should not melt .
If the 52 C mark does not melt after a rea-
sonable length of time, the thermostat is stuck
open and the motor is running too cold. If the
73 C mark also melts, the cooling system is not
functioning properly allowing the motor to over -
heat. Check for a worn pump assembly, leaky
water system, or restrictions in the cooling
system.
TESTING TEMPERATURE
SWITCHES - REMOTE CONTROL
MODELS
Temperature switches, installed in each cylinder
head, are i n series with a "HOT" warning horn
in the remote control box. Should an irregularity
develop in the cooling system and cause ab-
normal water jacket temperatures, the switches
close the warning circuit.
ENGl..ISH
4-5
A switch may be checked by submerging it in hot
oil. Use a test light to check the contacts and a
thermometer to check oil temperature. The
contacts should close at a temperature of 99 C
3 and open at 79 C 4 See Figure 4-11.
To remove switches for testing, pull back
insulating sleeves and open knife terminal con-
nections. Remove cylinder head cover(s) and
switch(es). See Figure 4-12. On installation,
clean gasket surface thoroughly Apply OMC
Gasket Sealing Compound lightly to gasket
surface(s). Also apply the same sealing com-
pound to top surface of heat switch grommet and
again after cover has been installed. Install
cyli nder head cover using a new gasket. Re-
connect temperature switch leads and slide
insulating sleeves over connections.
REMOVAL OF UPPER
CRANKCASE SEAL - 2 THRU 15
The presence of oil under the flywheel indicates
a leaking upper crankcase seal. The upper main
bearing seal can be replaced without disas-
sembly of crankcase. Remove flywheel. Use Seal
Remover Special Tool No. 319060 to remove and
install the seal. See Figure 4-13.
Use tip " A" on 4 and 4.5 models, tip " B" on 6, 6
Com. and 7.5 models, and tip "C" on 2, 9.9, 10
and 14 Com. and 15 models.

REASSEMBLY OF POWER-
HEAD - 20, 25, 25 COM.
AND 35
Proceed slowly. Make no forced assemblies
unless press fits are called for , and make no
"dry" assemblies. Be sure all parts to be as-
sembled are clean and free from dirt and grit .
Perfectly good cylinder walls, pistons, and rings
can be ruined in a few minutes of operation
unless all forms of grit are removed before
assembly. Work in clean surroundings and with
reasonably clean hands. Coat all bearing
surfaces, cylinder walls, etc., with clean oil
before assembly. Where the use of oil is
specified, we recommend 50/ 1 Outboard
Lubricant.
[J NOTE
Always use new gaskets throughout when re-
assembling the powerhead. Coat gaskets with
OMC Gasket Sealing Compound No. 317201. Do

PISTONS, WRIST PINS, AND CONNECTING
RODS
a. The relative positions of pistons and con-
necting rods must be considered when as-
sembling pistons to rod. Pistons must be in-
stalled in cylinders with intake side of
deflector toward intake port. See Figure 4-87.
Oil hole in connecting rod must be toward
top of motor.
b. Apply a coat of oil to wrist pin, making sure
surface is clean. Place a drop or two of oil in
each pin hole in the piston.
c. Insert wrist pin through hole in piston. Oil
wrist pin bearing in connecting rod. Place
connecting rod in position, then proceed to
install the wrist pin using Piston Cradle
Special Tool Part No. 326573 and Wrist Pin
Pressing Pin Part No. 321434.
d. Replace retaining rings using Special Tools
Part No. 318600 and 318599. See Figure 4-
87A. Make certain rings come to rest
securely in the groove provided for this
purpose.
e. Check piston with micrometer to determine
whether piston has been distorted during as-
sembly. Replace the piston if variation in
diameter at the bottom of the piston skirt is
greater than 0,08 mm.
PISTON RI NGS
Install the piston ri ngs on each piston. Spread each
ring with a ring expander just enough to slip it over
the head of the piston and down into place. Be sure
the rings fit freely in the piston r i ng grooves. The ring
grooves are pinned to secure the position of the
rings, primarily to prevent ends of the rings from
catching on the edges of the ports in the cylinders,
but also to assure staggering of the ring gaps.
ENGLISH
PISTON AND CONNECTING ROD
INSTALLATION
Coat pistons and cylinder bores with oil and install
piston and connecting rod assemblie!?. being sure to
match each assembly with the cylinder it was
removed from. The intake side oft he piston deflect or
must be placed toward the intake port. The piston
rings must be compressed before the pistons can be
replaced in the cylinders. Makecertainthatthe rings
are correctly positioned in their grooves with respect
to the groove pins. Damaged pistons and broken
piston rings may result from imperfect alignment of
the ring gap and the piston dowel pins.
The use of automotive type ring compressing tools
should be avoided, as these frequently cause
damaged pistons and broken piston rings through
imperfect alignment of the ring gap and piston dowel
pin. The use of Special Tool No. 326591 is
recommended. See Figure 4-88. Using one hand to
push the piston into the cylinder, use the free hand to
guide the connecting rod into place.

GEARCASE PRESSURE AND
VACUUM TESTS - ALL MODELS
To t est all gearcases for correct sealing, proceed
as follows:
NOTE
All gearcases must be completely empty of gear -
case lube before performing pressure or vacuum
tests.
a. Remove drain plug and screw in a pressure
test gauge. See Figure 5- 1. Stevens Experi -
mental pressure test gauge illustrated.
b . Pump pressure up to 3-6 psi (21-42 kPa). If
pressure gauge indicates leakage, submerge
gearcase in water to determine source of
leakage as evidenced by bubbles. If gearcase
pressure gauge does not indicate leakage, in-
crease pressure to 16- 1'8 psi (11 0-124 kPa) .
If pressure does not hold, submerge gear-
case in water and check for source of leak-
age. Make necessary repairs and repeat test.
c . Screw in vacuum tester . Pump out to 76-127
mm of mercury and see if vacuum holds.
Then pump out to 381 mm of mercury and
check. If gearcase fails to hold on either test.
put oil around suspected seal. If leak then
stops or oil is drawn in, that seal is defec-
tive. When gearcase checks out OK, refill
with lubricant. See Section 1 Lubrication
Chart.
FILLING GEARCASE
a. 2 models - lay motor on side with fill hole
facing up.
4 thru V-6 - gearcase must be in an upright
position.
b. Remove oil level and oil fill/drain plugs.
c. Fill gearcase with OMC HI-VIS Gearcase
Lube until lubricant appears at oil level hole.
See Figure 5-2. Insert and tighten oil level
plug first . Invert gearcase and remove oil fill
hose. Install fill/drain plug and tighten.
d. Inspect gearcase oil level after motor test.

GEARCASE REMOVAL - 35
It is possible to remove the lower gearcase as-
sembly without removing the powerhead from
the motor. However, if disassembly of the ex-
haust housing is required, it is necessary first to
remove the powerhead. See Section 4 for
instructions.
The gearcase assembly may be removed from the
exhaust housing as follows:
,& a. Remove upper motor cover . To prevent acci-
dental starting of motor, disconnect the
charge coil connector.
b. Remove both port and starboard water intake
screens. See Figure 5-141. With two
wrenches, hold lower shift rod and turn
upper shift rod connector . See Figure 5-142.

upper connector cannot be removed at this
time. The connector will fall off when the
gearcase is removed from the exhaust
housing. See Figure 5-143.
c. Remove screws and nut attaching gearcase
to exhaust housing. See Figure 5-141.
d. Remove gearcase assembly from exhaust
housing, taking care to avoid damaging drive-
shaft, which extends upward to the power-
head ..

ADJUSTMENTS
SHIFT HANDLE ADJUSTMENT -
20, 25, 35
If removed or replaced, check shift handle
register with REVERSE, NEUTRAL, FORWARD,
on lower motor cover.
a. Place gearshift in neutral. Propeller should
turn freely. The roller on the shift lever
should be centered on the neutral detent on
t he shifter lock lever. When shifted into for-
ward gear, you should feel a slight shifter
dog drag when turning propeller shaft back
and forth. This indicates full engagement be-
t ween clutch dog and forward gear.
b. If out of adjustment , shift gearcase linkage
into neutral. Propeller shaft should turn
freely. Loosen shift lever clamp screw and
adjustment screw.
c. Move shift lever into neutral detent on shifter
lock. Tighten both screws. Shift into forward
gear and feel for slight shifter dog drag. If
you do not feel the drag, then readjust shift
lever slightly toward reverse position and
tighten screws. Recheck for drag. This drag
in forward gear assures that the shifter dog
and gear are in full engagement.
STEERI NG FRICTION ADJUSTMENT
Adjust steeri ng friction with motor mounted to
boat by simply loosening or tightening screw
with screwdriver as shown. Steering friction
should be adjusted so that a slight drag is felt
when turning. This will allow smooth steering.
Minimum friction is required when remote steer-
ing is used. See Figure 5-182 or 5-183.
& SAFETY WARNING
The steering friction screw is not
intended to allow "hands off " steering .
IDLE SPEED ADJUSTMENT
If disturbed, adjust idle speed knob. Turning
clockwise on the knob increases idle speed.
turning counterclockwise decreases idle speed.
Make certain that throttle is in slow position and
the motor is at normal operating temperature
before making the idle speed adjustment. s ~ e

tion (propeller shaft will turn freely when in
neutral). Note amount of free play in shift
lever, and position lever in center of this
travel.
Determine mid-point of shift cable backlash
by first pushing cable and trunnion nut
toward each other. and then pulling them
apart.
Position backlash at mid-point. Then place
trunnion adjustment nut of shift cable into
trunnion pocket of anchor block which aligns
with the shift lever . See Figure 8-20.
Turn the trunnion adjustment nut until hole
in cable is in line with pin on shift lever.
Attach cable to pin using washer and lock-
nut supplied with engine.
f. Move throttle lever on engine so that idle
stop screw is against its stop.
g. Grasp throttle cable and trunnion nut. Pull
firmly on cable while pushing on trunnion
nut to remove backlash from cable and
remote control.
ENGLI SH
Ul1 NOTE
Unless backlash is removed (as in step "g"
above) before adjusting and connecting throttle
cable. engine may not return to a consistent idle
speed.
h. Position throttle cable in notch in anchor
block. Turn trunnion adjustment nut until
hole in cable is in line with pin on throttle
lever. Attach cable to pin using washer and
locknut supplied with engine. See Figure 8-
21.
& The throttle cable must be adjusted just tight
enough to insure that the engine throttle lever
returns to its idle stop. If this cable is too loose.
the engine idle speed will be high and incon-
sistent. causing difficulty shifting out of gear.
If it is too tight. the control will feel stiff through
the shifting range, and the warm-up lever will
tend to move up when shifting to neutral.
&i. Slip rubber grommet onto control cables.
and press grommet into groove in lower
motor cover. Snap cable retainers shut. See
Figure 8-6 or 8-7.
