    Default Need help in search

    I need some help locating a starter kit, (starter and bracket, solenoid and bracket as well as a starter button for a 1961 to mid '70's Evinrude 18, 20, or 25 hp outboard. It's all the same parts for these motors and years. If you can point me to someone who might have it, It would be greatly appreciated. Thank you. Eric, aka "jamesdean"

    There used to be a guy in Grove OK (I know that a bit of a drive for you) that helped me alot on a 1980 Merc that I had. The name of the place was Frankie's marine but I'm not sure if he is still open or not. Several years ago he had a couple old chicken houses completely lined with older motors so even if was something that was no longer made he might still have what you are needing. When I was there he said during the season he wouldn't work on the older motors but really helped me alot on how to do it myself

    Thank you all. I just got off Phone with Frankie's Marine and awaiting a call back on if he has the parts. He's pretty sure he does to include the battery leads that I was going to make. Will keep this post up to date as to what I find out.

    Thank you again sweathermon for telling me about him...And yes he's still in business....
    Thank you everyone for the help and leads on older boat parts. One never knows when you'll need them...

    Glad to hear he is still open and had what you need. He was pretty good to me when I needed help on my boat just kinda your cranky older mechanic Need help in search but didn't hesitate a bit to drive me over to his house to see if we could find a motor identical to mine to figure out my starter situation so that's a pretty good guy to do business with in my book.

    yep, He's still open. He didn't say he had it, then again he didn't say he didn't have it. He said he was sure he had the parts, wasn't positive on the starter but said he probably could come up with it. When he told me what he wanted, well I have to wait till the first now. He said he would get all together in a box and then call me. Tim's Outboard Service up in Michigan has some parts but don't have what I need right now. Said he'd have to wait till he got some more motors in to put a kit together, but said he didn't know when that would be...N.W. Boat Co in Farmington Hills Michigan is currently moving stuff out of an old warehouse to their new building, thought they MIGHT have what I was looking for but said it would probably be late next month before he knew...All very nice people to talk with, BUUUT.....
    Waiting on Frankies call. If I don't hear from him by Friday, I'll drop him a call and see how the search is going...

    Called Frankie's back today, He has All the parts I need. He's getting the starter rebuilt now. Now if that stimulus check will come before I get my Disability check I'll go get it. Thanks again everyone for the help, I have added everyone's suggested contacts for parts to my phone index so I got them should the need arise for it again.
