"I just bought a boat, and it has a omc stringer outdrive and a chevy 250 6cyl. Can anyone tell me about this combination? I have never owned a omc outdrive, what should I know about these units? Thanks"

"What you should Know,.....

Is that those are Dead Horses,...... Parts are somewhat Hard to get,.....
And,...... If,+ When you Do get the required parts,.......
You Can't find Any Techs that are willing to Work on them.........

If it runs Good,.. Now,......
The Best thing you could do is Sell it,+ Buy a boat with either Mercruiser, or Volvo power.......

OMC is Out of Business.......... And,... The Stringer Drives were Marginal, At Best, When they were Brand New.........

Good Luck with it......."

"I have a stringer and I think its great. You can't beat a stringer for simplicity.
Never operate it without the drive all the way down. There is a manufacturer, GLM, that still makes all the parts you need."
