Johnson/Evinrude gearcases or lower ends

I have a 1987 Johnson 150 on a Outrage. There is a local dealer going out of business and he has several OMC lower end cases, some with all the gears and the others are the cast lower unit itself without anything inside . I know sooner or later, I'll probably hit something and my question is there a difference between the 150hp gearcase housing vs 175, 200, 225 in the 1980s? I would really like to pick up one as a spare, as the prices are great and there is no tech help at the shop and any advice would be appreciated

That might depend...
If he had typed this on his laptop while at high speed, in the Whaler, heading for a submerged rock, he could have asked this question prior to the actual point of impact and by the time it was posted, it would be in the right forum.
But THIS is in the wrong forum, sorry...

Not only that but it is the 2nd or 3rd forum he posted in.

only- Don't buy any of these items. You're going to get stuck with it. Actually, if you are running an '87 150 with high hours, and the lower unit goes south, you may be better off getting into a new/rebuilt engine. .03 David

Sorry about the double post. I am working too much and not boating enough.
