If it has a VRO and dark blue sounds like a 1987 to 1990 do you know if it is a Crossflow or looper (looper will have V4 written on the back of the block) Lopper are newer motors 1990 it think until 1999. Hope I helped

thank you i know its a 3 cylinder nit v-4 not sure of the looper
All three cylinder OMC's back to 1968 were loop charged. Try taking off the engine cover and looking for a silver looking freeze plug on the top of the powerhead. That should have the model and serial number stamped in it.. Post it..

That is the engines serial number. I will call the warranty dept. on Tuesday to see if they can provide some info. Alot of times they cannot on a vintage outboard. Vintage to them is over 10 years old.
