boat motor/Tecumseh bone yards

4 posts in this topic

Hey Yall,

I have a 15 hp Gamefisher from 1978 or so, I braught it to a guy and found that there is no spark on the upper cyclinder. He infromed me that the Magneto went out, I searched around and found that the motor is made by Esko. The engine is a Tecumseh. The part is no longer available according to Sears and several other parts dealers online, I will check some parts stores when they are open. The part that I have found in aftermarket places is between 150-250 (yeouch), Can anyone recommend a place to find a bone yard near Chisago, or st paul if I have too. I would even concider Cheeseland. grin.gif

Thanks for your help guys

Shawny, please don't double post, today many people is out fishing and responses are slow.

Try a search for used motor parts here on FM, or contact Twin City Outboards, or Boat Motor Recyclers, lookup phonebook for numbers.

Thanks

Ive attempted to do the search on here, its not the best search function there is, Ive dont alot of reading on the web also, Was just thinking maybe someone with more experience and knowledge would have a recommondation and thought I should post in both sections to make sure that both groupes of people would see it.

      Making sure all equipment is in working order is one thing I always try to take care of before taking my first trip of the season. Nothing is quite as frustrating as a flasher with a dead battery or an auger that wont start.  I have always been a big believer having the proper equipment with to stay safe come first ice.... These items include a spud bar to check ice thickness, a section of rope,  a life jacket and a set of ice picks. Having a second person with is also a smart move when the ice is thin. Talking to those "in the know" about local bodies of water and current ice conditions is also a good thing to do.  Remember, first ice is usally not a consistant thickness, so use caution...and trust your gut...if something feels not right, it usally isn't. Good luck and stay safe, my friends :-)
