For another thread, I'm searching for a Volvo Penta outdrive poster, showing all their outdrives over the years. I actually have the poster at home (I'm not there for another week), but I know that it is also linked somewhere online.

While looking for that I ran across this and thought it was pretty cool. Near the end it explains the melding of OMC and Volvo technology into the King Cobra offering.

Found this, too. It's been posted before but maybe not all have seen it.
It's titled "The Invention of the Stern Drive"...

Good info. Thanks for posting it up.

Is this the chart you were looking for?

That article mentions nothing of the dog clutch KC, or the cone clutch one, just the "OMC" (Volvo) Cobra
