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.

      Just got back into town from a slightly too long "vacation" dealing with relatives. Anywho, how has the fishing been on Superior, are the fish local or have they migrated N.E?

      I just bought a new Elite 7TI and the sun cover it came with doesn't really snap on very securely.  I'd say it just rests loosely on the outside.  It won't fall off if I flip it upside down, but it feels like it wouldn't stay on going down the highway or withstand any sort of jarring.  It takes hardly any pressure to pull it off.  Is this normal or is it a defect?  I've never owned a graph with a sun cover so I'm not familiar, but I imagined it would be a lot more snug.

      I have a Lowrance Elite 7 and was curious what lake chip most of you recommend for Lake of the Woods.  The insight pro chip that came with my unit is very basic for up there and was looking for a more detailed chip.  I'm not sure what brands are compatible with the Lowrance and which ones aren't.        Thanks in advance!

      Glad it didn't take a swim. My buddy had one of the cheaper Minnkotas deploy while he was up on plane using the main motor.  Needless to say it was a weak pin in the release system. It was a rental boat so he didn't have to deal with it. Bent the heck out of the stem portion. It was fully modified!   Didnt know now you were still going up to LOTW. Thought you were selling the place. Assuming you don't have the Sportcraft anymore since I don't think you'd put a Minnkota on that. If you still have the Sportcraft I know someone that might be interested in it.    I head up to South end out of Wheelers point tomorrow after work. Up for 2 weeks. Touch base with me if you are coming up or have the Sportcraft still for sale.   Ryan

      Thanks for the information. I believe yours must be different by the sounds of it. Mine looks like the one below. A bolt actually goes through the pin and bolts onto the actual trolling motor and you have to pull the lever completely out to remove it from the boat.

      Crawlers work great for a mixed bag of fish.  Fresh cut bait like suckers or shad work great for channel cats.  I've never fished North Lake in Red Wing. Have fun!

      Have you or anyone tried North Lake in Red Wing by Treasure Island?? Just curious if anything have been biting there?
