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.

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 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.

Sorry to thread jack but ETS you zip tied your oil drain hose up. Just curious what's the purpose of this looks interesting.

Previous owner may have done that. I still have it zip tied with a metal clip holding it in place, but a little more out of the way. Seemed better to me to keep it out of the sludge that might make its way into the bilge over time. It doesn't get all that hot in there and the zip tie has held up fine.

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?
