    I need a riser for my 2006 merc 496 for my 06 38 sundancer. My mechanic found a small leak in it and said it can either be repaired by a very good welder or to purchase a new one. Merc does not make those risers anymore. Does anyone know where I can find one ? Seems I can only find the standard and 2" riser.

    I would hunt Ebay as I was able to find some risers for my hard to find parts for 470's. They will be used most likely but in good condition.

    Are you sure your boat has 3 inch height elbows? I've just pulled mine (also 2006 38 da) and mine have the 2 inch elbows i.e. 10.5 inches tall as per the following link.

    My mechanic was animate that they were 3” which I thought was strange . Then he measured and the measurement was 10.5 inches but he was still calling them 3” . I ended picking up a pair on Great Lakes skipper for a great deal .
