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

Thanks Valv,

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.

      Don't beat yourself up over it at all. I moved several times and you still caught more than I did. Looking forward to this weekend's weather, will not even need a shelter to check depths and move around..... Fingers crossed, I haven't found fish all year. Sure am amazed at the wheelhouses though, absolutely mind numbing the #'s...

      Fished Cannon lake this evening. I bounced around from 12-5ft of water and started to mark fish in 8ft so I set up there until dark. I saw a bunch of fish come in for a look but not one nibble. Tried every color and style spoon and jig I had but nothing.

      Best thing you can do if you won't be around is to put the house on fresh ice, don't drill any holes, and put it on blocks.  When people get into trouble is if it gets windy and they have open holes under the house, that rain starts blowing around on top of the ice, and starts swirling down into the holes under the house....that swirling water EATS ice, and can sink a house pretty quick.     As as far as the ice on the lakes, if you have 14-15 inches of good ice like most places around, you'll have no worries if you do what is posted above.
