    Default 1.6 Litre OMC Sea Drive Identification

    Greetings everyone, from a new member!
    I have recently purchased a 22' Sylvan with a 110 HP, 1.6 Litre OMC Sea Drive.
    I understand they aren't particually well liked!
    This one has been sitting for an unkown time period, (5 or so years, I have been told by one source)
    There are many issues as you would expect!
    I would like to get a model year so I can purchase a manual.
    The numbers under the engine hood state: Model # 983775 Serial # 366956.
    Would anyone be able to help with the year?
    Thank you in advance!
    Regards
    Brian

    The boat was built June/1986, so I'm thinking it should be about an 86 model, but would like it verified!
    Thanks

    Likely it is a 1986 model.----Have a couple of seadrive V-4 motors for rebuild / parts and I am about 1-1/2 hrs away.----Please recheck those 2 numbers as they do not appear to be model numbers or even a serial number.

    Hi racerone
    I just braved to rain to double check those numbers on the mid section!
    It is possible there is an I or J (it is so lightly marked) at the start of the serial number, but other than that it is correct.
    I may need some parts, where are you located in Ontario? I am guessing the Georgian Bay area.
    Regards
    Brian
    I can send a picture of the plate if you provide an address!

    I am about 1-1/2 hrs south of you.------------The numbers you posted do NOT represent a model # or a serial # at all.

    Thank you for trying o help me!
    Those are the numbers from both plates mounted on the engine!
    One is on the port side of the mid section, another plate inside the engine cowling on the port side. Where else can I look for numbers?
    Are you near Durham or Hanover? Or are you down near Kitchener?
    I can call you to try sorting this out!
    Let me know how we can contact as I really need this running!

    Ok, so I think I finally found the right plate! Located inside starboard side bottom engine cowelling!
    Model # 2BBXCOM
    Serial # J860332
    What year does this make my motor? (assuming these is the right numbers)
    Why would they put different model and serial numbers on the same drive assembly???????
    Thanks again!
