What Company Would You Rather Have A Marine Engine By?
 
And Why?

Indmar?
Mercruiser?
Pleasure Craft?
Or Other?

Ilmore..... Mostly because it seems like there is very, very little issues with them. Not to mention, they are a little bit easier to service.

I have a fourteen year old Ford engine marinized by PCM and it has been trouble free (knock wood) for the 5 years I have owned it.

Is this engine for your '91 190?

Hard to say...Ilmore still a bit too new for me to agree with... It's the serviceability down the road.

I like PCM and Indmar because I have a '95 350 and I can get most parts at the local NAPA Dealer. Plus my local independent mechanic can work on it.

I have had engines with marinization by BOTH Indmar and PCM.... Although I have never had any significant issues with either one I prefer Indmar.....

Why do you prefer Indmar?

Just Curious...mine Is Running Fine. Just Wondering For When I Start Looking For A 197 And What That Boat Has

Your options are going to be limited by the years of boats youre considering. Pretty sure MC hasnt offered PCM since the mid-80's. Indmar was the only option through 2010. Ilmore and Indmar were offered in '11 and now its all Ilmore starting in '12.
