Re: Year of outboard

Just purchased an older boat and trying to figure out the specs of my motor. All markings point towards an OMC and has no name or hp decals on the cover. Below are the markings that I have found but have matched up with no luck.

The block tag shows G3226780.

Stampings on the mountIng bracket show the following numbers:
07LR1
190078

Any help is appreciated so I can learn more about what I am working with.

Post pictures of the sides, front and back, of the powerhead section, in focus with good exposure, then a shot of the whole side of the motor and the back, from flywheel to propeller.

 

From those images we may be able to narrow it down.
