    Hi All,
    I'm trying to narrow down the year of my MC-1 out-drive.

    I've read that the later models have the side mounted rotary trim / tilt / cutout switch.
    My drive does have this.

    What year did they start putting this on the MC-1 ???

    Cheers,
    Mike.

    OK i've narrowed it down more.

    The numbers after MC-1 relate to horsepower.
    Can anyone tell me what number was use for chev 350

    Thanks,
    Mike

    350 was labelled as a 255 when it was in the tr trs package
    Then it became a 260 in the 1 drive
    Imho its torque number but they wont say tbat.
    I seem to remember 78 as the year the trim indicator went on the side of the gimbal ring
