South Coast Merc Dealer

Hi, I need someone who could supply a powerhead gasket for a 3cyl 1990 merc 50 ASAP!
Unsure of part number so need someone who I can explain to what it is,
It goes between a plate on the bottom of the phead (base plate?) and the mid-section.
Cheers, Maxim

You could try Ron Hale in Pompey or Fairweather in Fareham either should be able to look it up for you but it will prob not be in stock and will need to be ordered.



You could try looking up part first to get part no using:

Urgh! Stay well away from Ron Hale.

Item 20 in the pic is Part no 27-88451 1
Item 34 is 27-38501 1

Try American Marine Imports - fair chance they'll have it in stock and can post the same day. 01789 491673

I know they are not a merc high performance dealer but I've always found them helpful for the standard bits and bobs?

Bad experience with them Matt?

Currently the cheapest place for parts I can find is Geoff 07747445897 - But dont mess him about as he will then no longer help you out when you need help.
