Mine is a 74 220SRV and I think this is the most beautiful boat ever built.
boat was near mint, a garage queen. PO blew the 302. considered many options, but finally found and installed a similar 188 Mercruiser engine. nearly done, weekend project. runs great. should be a fun summer.
Very nice! Back on the water where she should be..
well I don't have a big budget for this job, so it took a while. Its ready for its first test run in the water. I have checked everything 3 times. I set the shifter, and throttle by the book, its all tight. Changed unit oil, topped off power tilt, and trim tabs oils, found a blown fuse in trim tabs, and they work perfect. I have to mount the marine radio, the stereo, and the hummingbird, but I know the water where I will test it.
We have a '77 SRV220. We are in the same boat (pun intended)--engine issues, also a Mercruiser 188--no spark after pulling out of winter storage. Checked battery, plugs, points, plug cables, dist. cap, coil...no luck. Turns over but no spark.
Our first (only) boat, bought in '04 from original owner's son. Hate to part with it, but it may be time.....:-(
I just bought a 78 220 powered by a 188 and a alpha 1 drive. I'm being advised to go gm that the 188 won't push this very well. I don't see this being fast anyways and don't want a gas hog.
How do y'all like this engine?
It doesn't seem cost effective to swap I already have everything ford and could go 351 or stay 302 and ad a few hp . what's your thoughts?
