    If it came off the exhaust manifold it sounds like the drain cap. On the OMC's you remove that when you want to drain the manifold (winterizing).

    this cap is located on bell housing and is on the up side. Not a drain. The exhaust goes into it at other side of engine.

    The bell housing was used for both V-6/V-8 mtrs. When used with a 4 cyl they capped the other side.

    i just went thru this myself. I have a 4 cyl and the starboard cap developed a crack and exhaust gas was coming in the engine bay and suffacating the motor becuse the exhuast was being sucked down the carb, also water in small amounts was shooting in the boat.

    Then the crack let loose and in the water it shot like a cannon all over my motor.

    I went to home depot got a cap and was done with it 6 bucks american.

    I nearly screwed up big time; wife had be taking care of stuff before kids got here. Looked in a shopping bag and there was the new end cap. I thought I had put it on. Getting older sure as heck isn't making me smarter. I will do it now. I got the aux. mount on last night. Put a 5 hp Force on , it will have to do for the time being. Ken
