Default 500 EFI factory seal location

Does anyone have any pics of where the factory seals are located on a 500 EFI engine. I am about to purchase a boat and I want to know if this engine has been opened up. I am not local to the boat so I cant just look myself.

Thanks

Ronnie

My Innovation engine had one on the intake(front two bolts of the odd side I believe), crank pulley bolts and oil pan bolts.

Ronnie,
I was out all day today (family stuff) ... got your phone message this evening and left you a message back. Send me the pics to the e-mail address I left on your phone. Iv'e had 8-9 blue Mercs over the past several years and they always put the seals basically in the same locations.

I like the 500 EFI's - had a bunch of them. They are great engines (if they are left in stock trim).

Bob
