an OMC out drive is worth WAY more on ebay than in a scrap yard. could even be a fast $400 in the owners pocket on CL.

 

Too late for that now! It's in pieces!

Will, any way to find something on the wiring for this thing?

 

I'll ask the mechanic. I've made a note, and put on my bench.

He's off right now, probably snowmobiling.

Have I got the model # right? 985680   T0190303

 

Cityboy is right there. Most parts for those are NLA. Maybe list it

just as it is. The gears/shafts are worth a good buck.

I'll check the #'s when I go out side. From the pic, it looks to be 9B5680.

Brian is probably right on the wiring, but knowing which goes where can help.

 

 

Edit: Model # is 985680 as best I can tell!

Yep, I bought an outdrive unit at a local scrapyard a few years ago.  Paid maybe $20 for it at most.  It was a Mercruiser Alpha II model with prop.  I sold it in 3 sections, upper unit, lower unit, and prop......got over $1,000 for it all!

actually, thats better. just the housing with no gears sells for $2-$300. look on ebay for those same parts...take their prices and sell your parts at half. at rock bottom prices they will move fast. and, this is the time of year when everyone has things torn apart and getting fixed for next season. win win

 

an uncle of mine scraped an OMC cobra. a month later i bought a boat with a cracked housing. i could have kicked him in the nads for such a dumb move.

If you could do one of those deals a week you could give up on the cows.  :D

Found the wiring. It's in a 608 page PDF! :wallbanging:  Now I can go out and see if this matches to the wire colors on the pump. If so, I know what goes where and can test it. This has the solenoids right on it. Wires going out are for +/- and the switch i believe. Will know more later.

I will see what Aaron's Dad says about the CL/ebay deal.

 

I went on out and checked the cut wiring. Matches to what the diagram says. So I should be able to test after a bit.

We'll see about selling this stuff. I sure he will enjoy more money coming into his church's coffers as that is what he does with the scrap metal money.

I got the trim pump going! :thumbs:  Wiring was exactly as the manual said. Hooked it up and ran the cylinders back in. A bit slow by normal hyd. standards, but it works. Have 8+" travel. I got a SPDT switch for it and all is well.

Cylinders closed:

Cylinders extended:

Now to figure out where to use it.

I thought about that! One on each side. When one goes out, other goes in!

Definitely a good score there Kenny.

That pump, has 2 hoses from it going to a manifold, and then the 4 hoses to the

cylinders?

If so, you could replace that manifold with a selector valve, and have 2 cylinders

operate independently.

That's how it goes, Will! I have time to figure this all out. Where would you find a selector valve with these small fittings?

Does it say anything in that manual about PSI that pump puts out?
