Personally I stay away from anything OMC. You may have a time finding parts since they are no longer in business.

i have a 1994 four winns fling
when i purchased the boat used it had and overheating problem.
i had the engine rebuilt, the carbs rebuilt, and the thermostats changed. it still overheated. i took it back and the mechanic backed it into his pond and ran the dog out of it. it still overheated. he finally filled the two ports (low pressure and high pressure) on the top of the drive with set screws. and it seemed to run fine.
then the battery went bad and i took it to a new mechanic (a lot closer to home). he found that the stator and the power pack were bad. he replaced these, but also found that the impeller was slightly hitting the wear ring. he replaced the stator and the power pack and reworked the impeller. after this it started great, but when i put it back in the water the engine was overheating again.
the 2nd mechanic suggested pulling the thermostats (practically new, but several years old by now) - i live in houston where they may not be needed. the problem is that the $50.00 thermostats are buried under the engine and cant be reached without pulling the engine.
my guess is that the original owner probably beached the boat and sucked crap into the intake.
1. any idea how to clean out the engine cooling channels?
2. any idea on how to pull the thermostats?
3. is there another engine that i can replace the original omc115 with. i know this is a stupid idea, but i like the boat and after several thousand $'s it's really
