Well, another issue with the changing of the exhaust tips. I took my sketch and checked the hole placements and nothing lined up. Not even from the center of the pipe out to the three holes.
Reason is because your replacing a rubber dealio that is a 3" dia pipe with a 6" dia flange and putting in a 3" dia pipe with a 5" dia flange. It can be done but it will not be as easy as I thought. All 8 holes need to be filled and avoided with the 3 new holes. And I dont even know how these are attached. Anyone know if these are bolt through with a nut on the other end??

I have my exhaust out right now with the floor. I am doing a cam replacement going on with another post. I will go look bc I will be putting some things back together tomorrow at the boat storage. I will let you know the 100% answer.

If your boat is anything like mine, those are simply pointy screws, not bolts. I'm working through some of the same issues with my exhaust system at the moment. Thanks for the great thread so far.

They are stainless screws. (Some would call them, wood screws. http://www.stainless-fasteners.com/Sharx.htm

Well went to the Marina last night to pick up my new Fuel Sensor and Thermostat and talked to them about the exhaust tips. They said they could do the work in about an hour if I pull the tank, which I HAD pulled last night when I was talking to them (not anymore). A bit longer if they need to move the tank, which to me took 10 minutes. Anyway, they said as long as the new flange covers the existing holes we can just fill those with a specific sealer (that doesn't get hard) and drill some new smaller holes for the new screws and then chamfer the hole with a bigger bit to prevent gel coat cracking when you tighten the screws.

Still undecided.......

So, as it stands now, there are no stainless tips on the market that fit the 94 PS 205 existing flange hole pattern??

Not that I am aware of, but I only looked at the two places suggested by people on here. Remember, the ones that come on MC's are only a 3 hole flange so I doubt they have anything either.

Guys....Check with Teague Custom Mariine out in California. I just got a set of custom tips that he made and the customer bailed out. He can make anything you want. Mine are 3.5" with a 6" flange with three holes. He could of made me 3" with either a blank or 8 hole flange but I opted to take the ones he had since I can make them work. I'll get some pics posted once they arrive.

That's awesome!! Anyone particular you talked to? Phone # or e-mail?? Did it come with the internal flapper??
I understand your situation but I would choose the 3" pipe with the 6" flange and 8 holes. No extra filling and drilling...
