Got a 59 Johnson 50hp. Can I hook up and alternator? If so where do I get one? It has electric Start. But I would like to have an alternator hooked up to help out. From my Google searching I seen one on eBay that sold that looked like it bolted into the hole on the opposite side of the starter
Welcome aboard! So that hole you see on the other side of the motor, that looks like another starter would fit, is for a generator. They are as hard to find as hens teeth and if you do find one it will probably cost you and arm and a leg. I have a '59 Evinrude Golden Jubilee 50hp "Fat Fifty" and have the same empty space. I don't know if you can adapt an alternator to work or not. Maybe someone who had can jump in here.
