    I think I found the drawing. Ugh, it looks like it is at the bottom of the boat close to the Transom.

    That looks closer. Here is a pic I found of the one that was in mine before I pulled it and upgraded to the Bravo 2.

    That is for the outdrive the one for the engine is on the engine. I made up a three binder with all the imformation about the outdrives and engines with all their models and sn#'s plus some repairs that are common, all the insurance and registration docs and anything else that may come in useful. This comes in handy when ordering parts when a sn# is needed, no need to go out to the boat and grub around the engine looking for numbers. I have twin 470's and the shutters are in the top of first pipe. Other than having to drill out a rivit and replace it with a bolt and getting the shutter to slide into position it wasn't to bad. Your setup looks like it could be a little difficult and hard to get at.
