Water Jacket Gasket Failure


I have an '89 E-Rude 175XP. While going over the boat this evening to make sure my impeller job went well, I found that the gasket on the water jacket cover between the cylinder banks had failed at the bottom edge. Looked like about a 3/4" portion of the gasket was pushed out and making a nice spray.

I had about 5# of pressure at idle, which is plenty and I suppose I could run without fixing right now since I'm leaving tomorrow night for TR.

What I want to know is: do I need that specific gasket or can I use something like RTV sealer and make my own?

I know Bullet, just replace it with a Merc. emoticon

While it might not be a proper repair,my 7 hp evinrude did the same took paper matches as same thickness and poked in the crack in place of a gaskit (soft permatex paste on it )was away on a trip,meaning to repair later when not [sign in to see URL] so well used it for 5 more years and never ever did the proper repair as held so well.
Id say you can make one as mine was a cardboard.
As for switching brands there are more 89 year rudes needing patching still running and the black ones are generally gone when that old,inline six being the exception.
