Riser gasket help

Recommended Posts

Hey guys!

I'm new to boating, and Monterey. Took me about a year to finally decide on a boat after much research and boat shows, and I finally decided on a Monterey.

I can honestly say, I'm extremely confident I made the right choice.

I do have a few things though that I am looking to repair little by little.

Does anyone know the part number for the gaskets on the risers? (maybe even a website where I could purchase them)

I have a 1999 Volvo Penta 5.0 GLPWTR.

Also, I'm pretty mechanically inclined and have a garage full of tools, but can someone tell me, would this be an easy replacement for a first time boat owner?

I've always done my own auto replacements and I'm thinking that changing a boat gasket would take the same common sense as changing a gasket on an engine block on a car.

Am I correct?

Any help would do.

Thanks guys!

It's not that hard of a job. Just make sure you clean the gasket surfaces right down to bare metal, before installing the new gaskets. Any Volvo dealer should have the gaskets in stock. If you boat in salt water, have good look at both the risers and the exhaust manifolds while you have it apart. Posting some pictures would be good too. wink.gif
