I have a question regarding the outdrive I can use to mate up with my 1972 Mercruiser 888 (Ford 302). My boat is configured to run Ford and I already rebuilt the engine so I don't want to switch to Chevy. I talked to a shop that said a complete outdrive package to fit the 302 would be $1500+. One shop said I need the "R" style outdrive and another one said I need the #1 drive (I think that was the name). Can anyone help me figure out my options? What kind of outdrives will mate up to the mercruiser 888? Thank you.
