    1983 2.0l 200 cooling and props

    purchasing a 200 but the cooling lines are ran a little funky but would like to see how it is suppose to be ran and cannot find any pics on it or info online. if you have the motor can you put a pic of the water lines from the heads to the pisser.

    what props you guys running on a smaller 19ft low v boat. with a 200

    thank you

    Any ideas what a guy should prop one of these 1983 2.4L 200hp finger port motors using a 6" jackplate on an Astro 18FS ?

    I'm thinking of repowering with the 1983 2.4L 200hp in place of my 2.0L 150hp

    Absolutely! Always try what ya got! lol If RPM's are too high, then trade it to a buddy for a 23 or so.
