1978 Evinrude 85hp.
I'm looking for the rubber seal that goes around the bottom of the cover. Old one is severely cracked/split.
I'm looking at marineengine.com at part number 14 on this page and want to know if anyone has gotten one of these.

Hard to tell from the picture if this is the correct one. I really don't think it is.
A while back I think Bob (Waterwings) was looking for one also. don't know if he found one or not.

Found one on EBay yesterday. Used. Contacted the seller that is a marina in lower Michigan. Said it has no cracks, splits, and is soft and will fit the '78 Rude 85hp. Marineengine.com has them also but for $41+ new. I purchased the one on ebay, $26 with shipping.


Update....
Got the part I ordered on ebay from the marina.
What was confusing is that all the pictures of the product look nothing like the original so sometime along the way OMC redesigned that seal.
Anyhoo, the part came and looked almost new. A very different configuration and profile but with some stretching it fit perfect at half the price of new.
