"Daniel..... OMC did not make a electric or hydro electric shift engine in 1974. The last hydro electric shift engine was made in 1972. However, if you are certain that you have a hydro electric shift engine, make sure you're using "Premium Blend" lube and not "HiVis" lube. The HiVis is too thick and will not operate correctly.
