Only 98 and early 99 150-175 hp blocks had the problem - They where the only ones issued the formal notice by the Coast Guard. OMC offered an updated head (pinned head) and strengthened injector bracket kit for the 150-175. The head was not a problem on the 200-225 and though not a problem on the 200-225 a strengthened injector kit was offered too.

Bought a used 99 200 hp with the kit installed that had a little over 250 hrs on it two years ago. Had it gone over with a fine tooth comb compression, serial number, computer diagnostic, etc. Traded a 99 150 carbed Johnson for $2500 + tax installed and one year written guaranty. Two years and over 500 hours later Im still happy as clam and the engine has been flawless.

Thats cool - I've got a 94' Johnson 150hp O Runner that I'm interested in trading too.
Where did you find the 200 hp ?

I may be looking to sell both of mine if but would consider spliting if you are interested in a 2000 225.

m3taco is right on the money !

My tip is to tell you that Fichts like full synthetic. Much less plug fouling. Evinrude XD100 oil works well although it is expensive. My friend use Pennzoil full synthetic with good results.
