    Try http://www.boats.net/ - don't know if they go back that far or not but if they do, you can use their online parts diagrams to find the part you need.

    Otherwise find a local Yamaha service shop and they can get the part for you, probably about the same price as ordering on the internet after you pay shipping.

    if you can't find it there try www.iboats.com. They've got just about everything that has to do with a boat.

    Thanks for the help guys. Couldn't find one on either site. I might need to covert it to one of the newer style filters. Do you think there would be any problems doing this?

    Bypass the engine filter. and install an inline filter between your fuel tank and your engine. It should be no problem.
