The engine is NOT made by OMC.
It's made by GM.
Virtually every gasoline engine installed in small craft in the last 20
years has been GM.
My concern would be the OMC drive. Parts are available from aftermarket
sources, but some years had all sorts of problems with the shift cables.
What years I don't recall, but it was a MAJOR issue.
1992 was pretty much it for the OMC Cobra as later production was the King
Cobra , which was really a Volvo.
