    John,
    You might try Dan at ganotech.com 1-712-336-3297. Dan is a very nice guy who stocks old new stock OMC parts. Been a few years from the last time I spoke with him. Anyone use his services lately? He is in Spirit lake, Iowa .
    Just looked up his web site, he is still in business & Dan offers links to other sites if he doesn’t have the part needed.

    Dan is definitely around. Bought some parts from him for a 1956 Sportwin a few weeks ago. Great guy.

    one more question. Can Loctite be used on the connecting rod cap bolts in lieu of the original metal keepers ? Thanks again

    I wouldn’t make that substitution….Although a few drops of loctite in addition to the keepers cant hurt. But, be sure the threads are nice and clean beforehand, those rods are hard enough to torque properly with those goofy rod cap screws…The torque spec is pretty low, so you want to make sure you have it right, or you know what might happen….D

    Where abouts are you located? I have a few extra sets of AD rings here.

    Am I correct in assuming this engine has no ‘top seal’ other than the oil slinger plate on the crank? Thanks again

    No upper seal, just the crankshaft slinger…

    305119 is completely different and for another motor. 303391 is the correct carbon seal fo your motor.

    Thank you, and is this seal necessary as there was none there when I tore it down…
