WENT OUT TODAY AND JUST GOT INTO THE BAY WHEN SHE OVERHEATED BUT I KNOW WHY - JUST DON'T KNOW WHAT THE PIECE IS CALLED. IT'S THE LONG COPPER TUBE THAT RUNS FROM THE FILTER BASKET ON TOP TO UNDERNEATH THE EXHAUST MANIFOLD. THE GASKET WORE OUT AND I HAVE IT ALL APART BUT WHAT IS IT CALLED AND WHERE CAN I GET THE GASKETS FOR IT. HOWEVER BOTH ENDS ARE FLARED SO HOW CAN I GET NEW GASKETS AND THE BOTTOM END FLANGE IS NOT FLAT BUT LOOKS LIKE THE GASKET FITS IN THERE. THANKS FOR ANY HELP.

Is this where the water goes thru a rubber impeller to the water pump?

"Try this, from Sierra Marine. I have found that I can go to O'Reilly automotive, ask them for the Sierra book, and order this in a day or two.

NO - IT IS A COPPER TUBE LIKE AN ELONGATED "S" WITH TWO FLANGES ON EACH END ATTACHED WITH TWO BOLTS (10MM) TO THE FILTER HOUSING ON TOP AND INTO SOME SORT OF MANIFOLD LOOKING PIECE ON THE STARBOARD SIDE. THE SIERRA LISTING ABOVE IS NOT THE GASKETS I NEED BUT IF I KNEW THE NAME OF THE PART I COULD GOFROM THERE
