      No, I have looked here and other sites. You know, I am starting to work on this OMC with no knowledge of them this old so I am at a loss as to some things. I want to try to find a ID on it but I cant find one in all the places one would look. but there again it has a thick coat of paint on it. I shall check the website. I think I checked there but shall check now just to make sure.

        Might try NAPA auto parts. They have a surprising catalog for marine parts. Fact is I have an old NAPA catalog. May need to find some sheet neoprene and make one.

            Checked with NAPA today and no luck. I guess I may need to just scrap the drive. I hate to because I wanted to restore it to original. Keep a look out, and thanks for the help.

              When I was outfitting my 197? something Stringer with some of the more exoctic parts no one had I found these guys quite helpful in sourcing the parts out and getting them for me. I have found up to 4 versions of this transom seal but I have only been able to back to 1968. But, when you get to the site below, search on OMC Part#: 308456.

                Hi, Ok well I did the search you sugjested and did find a listing of the parts but with no image of the part it's hard to tell if that is what I will need. As I said in the first post It's outside edge is round and has 12 holes to mount. Most all I have found are the 16 holes and somewhat square. I am starting to think this was made for or by Cobia for the G24 Offshore. But I may be wrong, some one may say,,, "Oh yea I know where one is." or so I am hoping. Thanks.

                  The OEM part number I gave you is for a round one. I have the numbers for the three other styles if you want them. Understood your situation just fine. Just can't tell how many holes it has from the Diagram I have. I doubt very much you have a seal custom to your G24 Offshore. Give them a call. There are very helpful.

                    Hey Lyndy

                    OK

                    [I] The OEM part number I gave you is for a round one. [/I]

                    Sorry, I must not have done it right, all I got was A listing of the part nothing other..... Help me out here on how to see the Diagram.

                    Just can't tell how many holes it has from the Diagram.

                    I would bet that is it if it's a round ID, and OD, it must be the one...
                    I have 2 types I have come across of OMC seal #'s both were some what square on there OD .... and a normal round ID....

                    I doubt very much you have a seal custom to your G24 Offshore. Give them a call. There are very helpful.

                    OK I shall call them.Well I did not think I did have a custom seal but I was not having any luck in finding a Model # on the string drive the most important thing to do any thing.,,,,,, Other places I had posted and were looking said, Only 2 types were made... It must have been a Cobia Part but now Maverick Boats has no real info on 66 the models... And I am no stranger to Forums and did not want to just keep hounding with no more info to give the members. than Duhhhhh, It's round and has 12 holes...

                    I own a automotive repair shop and know how frustrating it is when some one comes into my shop and Has a Thingey Broken,,, and it's about that big. And around the side it hooks up next to the big round thing on the top of the motor....

                    That's about is clear as mud to me...... And I know my problem is to you all to.

                    I shall. go back to the site you gave me there and see if I can pull up the diagrams........ A exploded view would be great... Checking back soon.....

                      I have OEM Parts Catalogue for 1968 OMC Units. That is where the Diagrams are that I was looking at and is where I got the part# I gave you. Marine Parts Source does not have a picture of it. If you call or email them they will try and source it for you. Just let them know that the Transom Seal has to have 12 holes. I will try to scan the page and upload it here for you.

                        no way is that gearcase holding lube....
                        just because you found it that way does not mean it is supposed to be that way.

                              I am sorry, I will rephrase. From this thread and the picture of the outdrive supplied, how did you determine the gearcase could not hold lube?
