Not sure here bill so please dont send the cavalry but i think this type of engine on a marinised version doesnt have a dipstick as the sump has been cut down ,look on side of engine and see if you have oil feed pipes running to oil cannister on the side near the engine somewhere ,like a dry sump type design ,with a oil reserve outside the engine ,even posher types have a integrated oil reserve with a oil cooler which is sea water cooled .

When you look at the engine from the front, the dipstick should be to the right, almost halfway toword the back, if I remember correctly. The possibility exists that the handle has broken off the dipstick, and so it will be harder to find. It could be missing. In either case, it's going to be hard to find it without really getting in there or feeling around for it. Another suggestion would be to just have a friend or neighbor or anyone look at it, four eyes are usually better than two!
Good luck, and hope this helps!

My husband needs the point gap , timming & dwell settings for 1978 351 ford windsor that is in our boat. Is there a link we could get this info? Or does anyone have this infoThanks Sandy Chuck's wife


I would look up a Websearch for the brand of motor and the year and engine size. Marine engines have different camshafts and timing is different than on an auto engine. You would look up Mercruiser if it is an inboard/outboard outdrive and has Mercruiser emblems. Same for Volvo or OMC embled outdrives. Ford makes the basic block but the specs go by outdrive makers.

This is because the gearing in the outdrives make a difference in what the engine needs to do.

3.0 omc sterndrive. I am getting no spark beyond my points. I installed a new cap, rotor,and plugs. any ideas?


Is the rotor turning? Check your coil and condenser.
The OMC drive system uses Micro switches in the linkage. They switch when the throttle positions are correct. The Micros operate the ignition Module.

Some of the outdrive systems have a starter cutout and some have an ignition cutout for the UP positon of the outdrive. The angle of the outdrive is too severe for the U-joints to move so they fix your boat not to start when the outdrive is UP.

Move your outdrive down and see if the igniton comes back.

Omc 3.0 motor fires but will not start


Yes, the ignition switch or ignition wires on the Run side of the switch may be bad. Most people don't know that the Start side of the switch can power the spark plugs. But when you stop cranking and let the key go to Run you can lose the spark to the plugs

There is also a safety feature in the OMC system. The micro switches on the linkage have to be adjusted or timed. This is so the throttle is not set too high to engage the outdrive. So it does a lockout of the module or a lockout of the starter.

A second feature prevents starting if the outdrive is up too high. This prevents breaking Ujoints and dangerous planing conditions from an improperly trimmed outdrive. Lower the outdrive.

You will see the microswitches, see if the linkage can be moved to line up the contacts. They are simply contact switches and you may have to temporarily disconnect some linkage to test start.

All the gear lube on my bravo III leaked out. The oil came out where the prop and the lower unit meet.


we had replaced the engine in our 87 4.3 star craft and when we put the omc cobra stern drive back in we now dont have foward gear, we have nuetral and reverse. could it be the linkage or could it be the shifter cable or any other idea's that could be the problem.

Looking for electrical diagram-wiring- for 1989 Four Winns 251 Liberator with twin 350 chevys and OMC outdrives


I would try a johnson/ evinrude/ bombardier dealer for the diagram. OMC was bought out by them so they should be able to help. However in the marine industry it can be hard any literature on older products b/c they only produce a limited amount of their products.

Omc sterndrive


You can try Bombadier(Spelling?) who bought out OMC. They still make some parts and should know.

Looking for water inlet holes on my omc outdrive


You should have slots on either side of the lowest part of the outdrive, above the skag or fin. There can be a difference if you have what is called a closed cooling system. The closed system has a radiator in front of the engine like an auto. The water from the lake goes through heat exchangers and does not make direct contact with the water in the radiator. The older open system uses lake water directly and it goes through the slots on the lower unit.

Buick regal oil cap


a6b6ca9.jpg A 90 Buick Regal Oil filler cap unscrews all the way out and does not "half-twist". It's just stuck. You may want to buy a replacement (about $4) before applying more force or tools to it, just in case it's brittle.
