Vib-E, I happen to have a customer boat equipped Cobra drive at the shop now. I'll take a look at his drive tomorrow to see if I can be of any help. Seems to me last time I had to address this issue that OMC didn't show any available components for that piece of hardware on their parts breakdown. It's been a while though....not sure yet. Mike

The nut for the bolt is probably in the upper housing now, you have to take the outdrive off to get it out. It's in the cavity on the inside of the upper gear housing. Try parma marine for the parts, thats where I found them for mine.

The cost of replacement parts these days is astounding sometimes. I was trying to find a starter mounted solenoid for a customer's 90 HP Honda outboard this morning. MSRP was a whopping $ 188.00. It's available through online vendors for just a little bit less. Prices like that make it very hard for a dealer to justify the investment in their inventory to service a customer's needs right away. Mike

Hey Vibe. I took my outdrive off and found the back plate to mine. I couldn’t believe it was sitting right there by the port hole. I got it back on and will never take that out again. Have to have some cables replaced or adjusted. My boat won’t slip into reverse. I know for a fact it’s the cables. So I m gonna get that fixed and should be ready for the water. You have yours out. Anxious to hear how your boat does.
