Customer Question

I have a 1994 Crownlike 196 with a 5 liter Ford engine and OMC King Cobra outdrive. My local boat mechanic says it is the coupler that needs to be replaced, that the engine and drive must be removed and that the cost of the repair parts and labor will be around $1000. Does that sound right?

Hello. My name is Tan.

The coupler is $419.07. The coupler is obsolete from OMC so you will have to go with an aftermarket coupler. They will be the ones to chose that part.

What is their labor rate?
