I believe the cutoff for PCM in a MC was somewhere midcycle of 1987.

To me, this forum is about love of inboard boats. It is about the sharing of information and, on a good day, some humor. It is not about post count, brand of boat, or any other superfluous labels that lend themselves to a false sense of superiority. Please, respect one another, try to pass on accurate information, and keep your eye on the ball.

I can tell you the Ilmore seems to be a great engine. Super easy to maintaine due to the extra thought put into the motor layout. Super smooth and quiet. They are big, I kind of miss the PCM and Indmar size.

I cant say anything bad about Indmar. I had a Malibu VLX with and Indar and for 8 years i never had one problem with the engine and it took alot of abuse from the extra weight.

I will say I am happy with illmor but when we first got the boat after two hours the water impellor went out and on the 6.2 its a pain to change because you have to remove the belt and pulleys to get to the impellor and now the belt whines. Had to bring it to the dealer this week to see what is wrong.

I'm on a Ilmor bandwagon, They have been in the marine industry for a few years as well as car and motorcycle. I like that Ilmor puts more into R&D improving their performance daily.

Doug...I purchased that 87 as HULL ONLY...SOLD it, prior owner before Brian, he repowered it. (MASTERCRAFTMARK). A combo or INDMAR, PCM and what ever he could strap on a Ford 351.

PCMINDMAR Hybrid!!!

MC did a midyear change in 1986 and went from PCM to INDMAR

Okay, got it. Looks like, at the least, it's using PCMesque exhaust risers, alternator, and water pump.

I think a better story would have been that that engine was the exact point that they went from PCM to Indmar.

Indmar all the way.

Why you ask? They stand behind their product. Let's just say I "know somebody" that was purchasing a repo'd boat. During the inspection it was identified that the engine had an oil pressure issue. Even though out of warrantee Indmar rebuilt the engine at no cost so the dealership could sell the boat. Now that is service you just don't find these days.
