    Default "I recently bought a 1986 bayl

    "I recently bought a 1986 bayliner with a 50hp force. The motor has been changed because the transom bracket is white and the motor is black. Just wondering if these numbers mean anything. The number inside the dial is 87
    Thanks GrahamForce 50hp

    Default "The 87's were built by Me

    "The 87's were built by Merc using mostly Chrysler parts (and possibly some Merc parts depending on the exact model).

    Chrysler never actually built any of the Force motors - the ones that state "by Chrysler" were actually built by US Marine (Bayliner) after they bought out Chryslers outboard division.

    When Bayliner was bought out by Brunswick in 86, Merc kept cranking them out until all the old parts were used up...."

    A "professional" is someone who gets paid for their work - it doesn't necessarily mean they are good at it :)

    Default Thank's Graham I am still

    Thank's Graham I am still confused as when I google 1987 force 50 hp it shows the motor cover as the angular one and mine has the more rounded modern look. I want to replace the impeller and maybe a bottom end kit but unsure which one I need.
