OMC Cobra parts books contain all of the information you need to know to make repairs to OMC Cobra sterndrives. The first model year for Cobra products was in 1985, so that is also the first year for Cobra parts books. The last available year for OMC Cobra parts books was 1993, when OMC replaced the Cobra line with the new SX and DP (for single and dual propeller) sterndrive designs.

Parts and parts books for the Cobra engines are still relatively easy to come by. Bombardier supplies all Cobra parts now, as OMC has gone out of the sterndrive business. Older, original OMC parts are also still available, especially from Internet boating sites, auction sites, and enthusiast forums.

OMC Cobra parts books are organized very similarly to other parts books. The parts book is a thick, comprehensive service manual that is designed to guide you though everything from common maintenance for your engine to replacing difficult parts that are buried in the center of the drive, and everything in-between. Parts books also contain detailed exploded-view diagrams, which are numbered, easy-to-read graphical breakdowns of the structure of the engine.

Ordering Cobra Parts from OMC Cobra Parts Books

When ordering marine engine parts, especially parts for older engines like the Cobra engine, it is necessary to know the part number of the original part. All parts manufacturers, including aftermarket parts manufacturers, label their parts with the original OMC catalog number. It helps simplify organization, and eliminate confusion about ill-fitting parts. By ordering with the original part number, you are insuring a perfect fit for your Cobra engine.
