View Full Version : 1993 OMC Cobra outdrive question

I got a friend looking at a 1993 19ft Christ Craft boat with a 5.0 with a OMC cobra drive. Question is how are these drives as far as reliability and parts availablity. The boat had low hrs, a freshwater only boat, and has been well cared for since new.

Took a BBF 460, stroked it and bored it to 502 with 514 HP. The King Cobra never missed a beat. They get a bad rap by some "Mercruiser Only" people. Broke 2 Bravo Ones on the big boat with just 500 HP. Parts are very available as I had it serviced just a couple years ago. No worries.

I don't think the 5.0 came with a KIng Cobra... ;)
