Hey guys does anybody have experience with OMC Sea Drive? My father has found a Grady he wants to buy but knows nothing about the OMC. Its an '86 2.6L OMC Sea Drive. If you have any opinions, stories or know a great technician that has experience with these please share.
Thanks
Pete

l Had a 1991 OMC Seadrive it was a repo sold it to a friend we're still friends!! The lower unit is bullet proof ,very heavy duty,still a lot of spare parts around. It is an odd looking Beast at best

Had a buddy with a 115hp. The "mounting bracket" is the obvious and only difference I remember, or am aware of. The manual is available on Ebay and as far as the motor goes...it's an OMC with the same dressings, as the Johnson/Evinrudes of the same era. Have seen a few in the last few years, wouldn't be terrified of obsolescence but would take a close look at the "sea drive portion" of the motor for any serious corrosion or potential soon to fails. No real special skills required. Your local trusted Johnson Evinrude tech will not have problem with this one.

Same motor as Johnson/Evinrude. Other than changing out the occasional stator and power pack this motor will perform fine.
