I know now it doesn't have one, had it apart a Few weeks back.

Have you checked the online workshop manual? This is where buying from Black Dog comes in as I'd ring them up and ask! When I did the Merc impeller they were very helpful on the phone with inside tips/knowledge that the mechanics have.

So did you just have that straggly rubber "O-ring" bonded to the reed block?

OK thanks. I'll check the carb flange on a flat surface and if it's totally true I'll have the choice of putting it back as it was or adding the paper gasket.... still likely to add the gasket.

What might help is if you check the parts microfiche for your year-it should be visible online at Merc's website. It'll show you if/where/what gaskets are used on your particualr motor.

How about a tiny bead of silicone or liquid gasket?

Max silicone/liquid gasket NO! I would use the paper gasket if the carb flange wasnt straight, so when you fit the carb do both side up equally so it doesnt either distort or brake the carb flange.Some I have had to use the paper gasket and some I have not.

Yep silicone would seal but if by any long shot you needed to pull the carb off because of a problem at sea or while on holiday a paper (or just the original embedded rubber thing) gasket is easier to deal with than cleaning off silicone and applying new on assy.

Nos yes the parts book does show a paper gasket. The detail is not good enough to see if you had a new reed block if it would come with the embedded rubber seal on the carb side like my original. Perhaps they have made that a plain flat face now so it needs the paper gasket hence it being listed.

Yeah, the manufacturers do that to cover more model variants under a single part number, since the majority of parts in the kits are common to a number of models. No doubt dealers like having fewer carb kits that they need to carry in stock.
