    Billy, that center section you are using had a GT clamp bracket on it when I got it, we took it off.

    Oops, missed that row, I agree, stock cast wheel.

    flywheel..needed cleaning and service often.

    1968 was the first year of the 3 cylinder looper and I think OMC made a mistake using the X/GT 115 gear case..took away to many horses just to turn around..

    Same problem with my 65SS 1973..
    The year after.. (1974) the same power head with standard mid section and the new Nitro gear case made my SE boat 15+ MPH faster..
    Wasn't the new 75 hp powerhead legal in 74?

    What about the swivel? Was it the same one that was on there when I got it?

    Hi again,

    The Evinrude 75hp came out first 1975..but the 70 hp 1974 we raced was more or less like a 75hp with the nitro gear case..

    Yes I think your mid section is from a FT-10s 1968 model year taatto.

    Does anyone have a picture of that shifter cable bracket? I have that shifter lever, but I don`t have that bracket. So I must make that.

    I have that green(Johnson) FT10 transom and gearcase. I am building 1970 60hp powerhead to it. But I use newer pistons and crankshaft(70hp). So I get newer ignition to it.
