Hello. My name is Tan.

The Yamaha parts are not available anymore as they quit making them in 1999. The only thing you can do is replace the entire drive and transom assembly. There is no drive that will work with Yamaha transom assemblies.

These are some examples. You can use any Mercruiser sterndrive R,MR, Alpha1, Alpha GenII.

Here is a complete transom assembly. http://www.ebay.com/itm/like/400997329093?lpid=82&chn=ps&ul_noapp=true

Here is the drive for the GenII transom assembly. http://www.ebay.com/itm/MerCruiser-Alpha-One-GEN-II-Sterndrive-Outdrive-1-84-Ratio-FRESHWATER-ORIGINAL-/252272584508?hash=item3abc9e273c:g:hpUAAOSwFMZWriKX&vxp=mtr

Here is a used assembly. http://www.ebay.com/itm/Mercruiser-Gen-1-I-Alpha-One-Sterndive-Transom-Assembly-Gimbal-Housing-2-5-3-0-/221934250288?hash=item33ac4fe930:g:0RQAAOSwo6lWPXsk&vxp=mtr

Look on Ebay. If you decide on a specific one let me know and I can verify that it will work.
