This is a question that someone sent me... some of you might know the answer and can offer some other insight...

"I've been looking for a 1991-1993 MC 190 PS because I like that style and wake. Because I don't have time to register & wait for a response, I was hoping someone could tell me if the 1994 MC 190 PS is the same hull and wake as the 1991-1993?

I'm looking at a 1994 and dont want to have to ski behind it to verify! Can you help me??

(ps...I'm a convert from a Supra)"

91-94 same hull - 94 first year for "standard EFI" engine 275 hp
93 had the "first"EFI with the LT1 option

Actually, didn't the '94 hull have a little nub between the 2nd and 3rd tracking fins.

Nah, I'm just kidding.

George is the man. 91--94 all have the same hull in the PS 190 (don't know if the TT Edition had any mods).

It was kind of funny about two months after I got my boat the then local dealer tried to tell me to upgrade to the 94 efi because the hull was different. What it really was he had someone else that wanted my stars & stripes and wouldn't buy the 94 and he was triyng to get me out of mine. Glad I kept 93

With the 4010 issues, I wouldn't be surprised if you didn't at least consider it. Not a better lookin' boat out there though.

What are the 4010 issues?

Many people, myself included, had hot stall issues with the Holley 4010 carburetor that was used on MCs equipped with the 351 HO roughly from 1992-1993. The 4010 is a dual feed carb, which is the easiest way to spot it. Correct Craft used this carb as well, but PCM recalled it while Indmar did not. The "fishbowl-style" carb is heat sensitive. Another part of the issue, as my local boat mechanic explained it to me, was that the carb tends to experience a good deal of fuel slosh back down the venturis when coming off plain (forgive me if I'm not explaining this detail very artfully). Thus, if you shut it down, you'd often have to pump the throttle to restart as it was starved for fuel. Often, at idle speeds, the carb would sputter and start.

I finally gave up on it after a rebuild didn't solve the problem, took George's advice (and followed his example), and had a Holley 4160 carb retrofitted onto my boat. My problems disappeared with this modification.
