I have Buick 200hp engines circa 1967/68 (tue 15S) coupled to omc stringer sterndrives. Anyone know where I can get head gasket sets? I am loosing cooling water through the exhaust and want to investigate/repair.
Also good source of parts for these sterndrives.
Thanks in advance.

Hello Mick, first thing I would check is the exhaust manifolds. Pull them and have them pressure checked. If you do need head gaskets, you can get it at any auto parts store Cool

Thanks Mike. In fact I just purchased a Felpro head gasket set (same engine as the skylark) and plan to pull the manifolds tonight.
Any good parts sources for OMC stringer stringer outdrives? Electric shift.
