No offense taken. You may be correct. If I seem a bit desperate, itís
because I arranged to have someone help me finish a head gasket job. I am a
bit over my head. Anyway, my friend asked me if I had them and I didnít
know what he was talking about. The OMC book that I bought from one of the
guys on here is for another engine but helped with the stern drive. I
havenít acquired any other books yet and Iíve googled to no end. Anyhow,
any help would be appreciated but I do not expect this from you. My
apologies.

Hi Ryan,

 

It may be out of line on my part -- but I'd like to politely suggest that
this type of question is the sort that you will be well served to discover
on your own. Your recent request to the list (someone?) look up a spec
strikes me the wrong way, as in a bit selfish, perhaps?

 

Why do I bother to try and point this out? Well, I humbly would suggest
that YOU should probably own more than one manual: Clymer, Seloc and OMC all
have their good and bad points when covering the OMC "electric-shift"
stringers and their power plants.

 

And something of the nature of your engine spec question is covered in the
numerous manuals covering Buick and later Kaiser Jeep engine manual on
vehicles that used the odd-fire 225 V6. I am willing to bet that a few
minutes using Google would yield an answer to your question from numerous
other sources on the Internet.

 

Look, I'm not trying to sound snooty or "holier-than-thou," but if you're
willing to dive in and spin your own wrenches, then be willing to have the
correct specs and tolerances at hand. I don't think few if any of us on this
list memorize this kind of detail on our boats' engines. Heck, I can't
recite the firing order, but I do know where to go find it without bothering
everyone on this list.

 

Look, I'm glad to welcome and appropriately help out all members to this
hobby and particularly to the world of classic OMC boating. But please don't
ask me to: "please look up the valve clearance specs."

 

BTW, I've enjoyed the pictures you've shared with us. Keep 'em coming.
