    Depends on part needed and availability of said part.

    For parts I usually go the the Crowley Marine site and get the part numbers. Then I search the part numbers and then search those on ebay,amazon and duckduckgo. Sometimes the marine suppliers want more for shipping then they do for the parts. Many times Ebay and/or Amazon will wind up being cheaper.

    Yep, I agree with Crowley Marine. They will also say whether or not the part is available at most parts houses. Some parts are no longer that way and you end up, most times getting used...I searched for parts that way, and so far everything has worked out for the best.

    for my 100HP 1980 'rude I used MARINE ENGINES.COM they've got more parts for OLDER marine engines than anyplace I found.
    P.S. I never tried Crowley.

    As an FYI, I've never purchased from Crowley either. I use their site to get the part numbers

    Another question, can someone tell me the color paint used on the 1972 50hp Evinrude. Its white and a greenish brown, I believe I found the white but no clue about the (green/ tan/ brownish) color, unless its artic white. Appreciate the help.
    Thanks Ray

    What I did to match my 1961 Evinrude Fastwin 18 was take a paint chip from the motor and go to an Automotive Paint supplier. Have them match it. The Evinrude grey blue from 1961 happens to be a dead ringer/ Exact match for a 1952 Cadillac. The paint Supplier can even make aerosol spray cans of the paint.

    Good deal thanks for the info. How does the auto paint hold up on an outboard? I read that sometimes its hard to get paint to stick to aluminum. Appreciate the advise.

    I finally got around to pulling the power head, is it recommended to use any type gasket sealer on the new gaskets? And is there anything else I should do while I have it broken apart? I'm replacing both of the gaskets between the power head and exhaust adapter, the water pump, thermostat and associated gaskets. Appreciate the advise.
