3.0 Litre Update Kit

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.
