WANTED: Looking for Mercruiser Alpha Gen 1 Outdrive
« on: November 18, 2019, 03:14:48 PM »
Anyone have one of these laying around?

Looking for a 1.50:1 gear ratio (hooks up to a 5.0L or 5.7L mercruiser).  Mine would've been a 1989.

Would appreciate anyone with a lead on a decent functioning outdrive.

Thanks,
Stang

Think i've got one to pick up tomorrow from a guy from Belfair.

I'm fairly mechanically inclined, but don't know a whole lot about outdrives.

I'm going to pressure test it.  If it holds pressure, I'm going to bolt it on and give it a shot.  if it doesn't, I guess I'll replace the seals.  watched a pretty good youtube on it, but it does seem like I'll need a few specialty tools.

we'll see how it goes, nothing looks all that hard as long as corrosion hasn't ruined your life.  seems easier than a cylinder head replacement, which I did a couple of years ago.

Picked up one down in Fife for $200.  Looks like a freshwater unit.  I'll be doing a pressure test on it and i'll probably replace the water pump, even though I don't really want to.  We'll see how it goes, for $200 its a worthwhile gamble.
