    I'm changing the water impeller on my 73 20hp merc and I have it all apart but in the new kit it has 2 O-rings and I can not figure out where they go. Here is a picture of the kit they are the ones below the set key for the water impeller.

    Did you take the bottom of the water pump out and replace the oring down there.

    No, so the water pump housing comes off completly? I took it down to the getting the water impeller off the saft and I replaced the gaskets and the plate that came with the kit. I did not take the water pump housing completly out.
