"Hi All,

Am considering purchasing a 92 21' Renken with this motor setup. Motor hasn't been run for a while but seems clean, oil is up on dipstick but hadn't checked the lower unit oil yet. Anyone know of any potential issues with this setup other than hard to get parts for the I/O? Owner says shifter cable sticks and will have to be replaced? Anyone know if this is big problem as I am used to outboards?? Thanks."

"yamaha stern drive badly supported. some backorder parts take months to get, and expensive. I'm not too familiar with the 4 cyl. versions, but they did oddball things to 6, & 8 cyl. models exhaust, ignition, cooling. I would leave it alone."

Have heard that this unit can be swapped out with a mercruiser unit and the bolt holes line directly up for the gimbles?? The boat is in excellent shape and suits my needs perfectly..but was just a thought..
