1997 (LK) and Early 1998 (BY) 3.0 Litre
Several issues have come to our attention that affect the running characteristics of
certain 3.0 Litre engines.
An update kit has been designed to address these issues. The kit has three functions.
First, it is designed to optimize cooling system water flow.
Second, the kit will eliminate the possibility of a voltage drop in the
boat's electrical system, causing the alternator to overcharge the battery.
Third, it will retard the ignition timing and allow the engine to run
properly on low octane fuel.
When working on a manual steering engine, order Upgrade Kit, P/N 3858269. All power
steering engines require Upgrade Kit, P/N 3858253. These kits can be ordered through your
OMC Genuine Parts distributor.
After the work has been performed, submit a warranty allowance request that covers only
the installation of the upgrade kit.
