TOPIC: I belive I need a Bear Cat starter

I belive I need a Bear Cat starter 6 years 1 month ago #62349

I have gone through thls starter 4 times now. Changed the top bushing so its not draging. But for some reason the starter had no power. Just did a compression check WITh the plugs out and it ran the battrie down plus got hot.
Now has anybody out there got a good starter for a ressonable price?.

Check with Billr. I believe he can sell you just the motor or the brushes or whatever you need. Bearcat 55.com. Did you do a systems check to see if it was the motor?

I'm not sure exactly what Billr has, but, I'm sure he can set you up with something. I'm pretty sure you can by just the motor. I work on cars and airplanes as well. Sucks when it's the starter.

Believe me, I know. These outboard motor parts are expensive. Here's what I did. There's a an auto parts store that I go to where a friend of mine, George, works. If I need something, like that motor mount I made, I go there to se if they have specs on what I need. If you took you starter motor to an auto electrical shop that can rewind the motor, it might cost less. Aside from the design of the Bearcat parts, the common parts, bearings, bolts, seals are standard in the industry. The starter you have, might be the same motor they use , for example, VW, or Ford. By the way, that motor mount cost 5 bucks to make. If you'd like, since my starter is off, I'll take it to Hap's and see if they have a crossover and let you know.

I've got a rebuilt Bearcat F series, and enough spare parts to build another Homelite with parts left over - for sale for $1200. I'm selling off all my old stuff and concentrating on one boat and one motor! :S

There's one at www.vintageoutboardparts.com . It's $40.00, but, it's used and it says it's welded. I'm not sure about this one. Sounds like Bill has one for you. Thing is, if you buy a used one and that one burns up, your SOL. On something like that, you want a good starter, especially if your out somewhere and that starter doesn't work. My friend George at Hap's auto says that to rebuild a marine starter is mucho bucks. I know these parts are not cheap. I'm living on a fixed income and sometimes I have to wait awhile to get something I want. But, Bill will stand behind his stuff.
