Engine Cover Seal - for Johnson or evinrude

Post by Tinny Fleet »

Have several motors that the engine cover seal has hardened or crusted away in places. Can't find replacements online.

This is the part that is stapled onto the cover that makes a nice vibration free seal with the engine housing, and alo keeps the rain out.

Reminds me of a fancy version of one of those plaastic trip pieces that we used to put on the edges of our car doors to avoid denting the next car over.

Can anyone point me toward a source, or is there an alternative to getting some heavily marked up (yet unavailable) OEM replacements?

Thanks!

You kind of spotted a possible source in your question. Why not try an auto supply store. The thickness would be the key factor,but mostly the door bumpers are hard plastic/rubber with a steel liner to hold them rigid.


just a thought.

Best wishes.
