                        You can always call Mercruiser with the M/N and ask them.

                            • Man that really came together awesome! You should be proud.

                              Never heard of a power steering motor without the power steering cooler... I know 3.0Ls had a version with no power steering, and you could tell them because the anode over the prop had the fin on it. I would assume if you have power steering there should be a power steering cooler... but then again, Im definitely not the expert... the gentlemens over in the merc forum would probably have the answer for you, and 20 other things you did wrong.. lol no offense to em, they have all the knowledge, but a lot of it comes with some cynicism.
