    Seems like the parts diagram I am looking at for the swivel bracket has the parts listed in wrong

    Can some one people give me the correct order of parts numbers from the top of the swivel to the bottom yoke

    Mercury part# 87735 is a seal that is placed on top if you look at the parts diagram but it doesn't fit at the top, it does fit on the bottom of the swivel

    I've looked at a few different year parts diagram from 80s 90s and 2000s they all use the same swivel bracket but the seals/orings/ and spacers are in different configurations.

    hopefully you guys can see the numbers
    part #2 is draw on the top but it actually fits in the bottom, its description is "lower" so what would replace it on top??

    No I got it all apart, yokes off and the steering arm is out of the swivel bracket, trying to put it all back together now. I cant exactly tell what seals/spacers go back on the right way because the few swivels I have look like they have different parts and most of the parts deteriorated

    It's a lot less boogered up than I expected. Do you have a factory service manual?

    Like to see a picture of splines but by the looks of what you have showing I would anticipate they are OK.
    Your bottom seal which is one of the most important thing looks to be in very good condition.
    Below the seal you have a plastic split bushing which looks OK but very hard to tell exact condition from that picture. Reason I bring that up is the section of the pin in that area looks a bit scratched up so I suggest to check it while you have things apart.
    It is #3 in your exploded view in your #35 post. If you need to change it also get a new seal and maybe a snap ring while at it.
    The way you have it now is the way it should go back together, washer above yoke.
    Most OS setup come with a similar washer with a yellow looking paper with holes that it actually works like a bearing to slide easier and it will hold a bit a grease when some gets by the seal, it's called a bearing not a washer in the parts manual. Some also have a wavy lower washer.

    Can you get a serial# and casting number from your bracket?

    I see two possible diagrams, there may be more, but depending on the casting number it looks like the seal part #87735 you mention is either above or below:

    perfect the plastic split ring and seal are brand new I just installed them. I will also use the wavy washer I have in the picture to go above the yoke. So seems like the bottom of the swivel is correct. Now what about the top, should there be an o-ring, plastic spacer and metal washer?

    On top side o-ring, spacer, large flat washer. Bottom wave washer, yoke, then snap ring.

    Yes looks like #5 and #4 and swapped with #2. I don't have a serial number on the one I am working on. Going to put #2 on the bottom and #4 and #5 on top since I was already able to fit #2 on the bottom ok...I will have to order parts #4 and #5
