Just the top seal? Might try matching it with something at a plumbing shop.

The manufacturer on the label, if readable, and plugged into Google, should get you some results.

I hate that type. Had one, and it sucked air intermittently - ruined quite a few boat trips with the engine dying. Presumably that's why you want a seal? Ours never worked from new.

Now have a Quicksilver set up with disposal canister filters.

Changed mine yesterday. Took the old filter to a car spares place, they matched it up, the new filter came with new seals too for the princely sum of 4. I'd try that

They are bad for air getting in, we had a Lifeboat go through two powerheads until we worked out that the boat was drawing in so much air through a leaking seal causing detonation on one of the pistons.

Got two new filters on order but they are slow in coming and need to try and sort something for the port side for sat so , what I am thinking is if I cut some rubber inner tube in a big washer style and nip it between or just bypass it for the day.
