Trapped inside my own mind.
There are a couple marine salvage yards, take a look in the phone book in the marine section, I forget their names. I know there are a couple in the portland area.
If you strike out at the yards, give stevens marine a shout. They have treated me well every time I have gone in there.

i recently picked up a parts motor at oregon city marina, $100 for an 18 horse motor, complete cept for the coils and prop. was $50 cheaper than just ordering the part i need...

I recently bought some parts at Cascade Marine. They had everything I needed for my 78 mercury outboard in stock and at a reasonable price.

I had a good experience at Cascade Marine when I took my outboard in for repair. The stator and voltage regulator burned up on my 2000 25 HP Mercury Bigfoot 4-stroke (motor died on an outgoing tide at Netarts, but that's another story...). They did have to order the parts, but they got it done on time and very close to the estimate (actually a few bucks under their quote). The total for parts and labor came to about $600, at least $300 less than the quote I got from Stevens (they estimated $900-$1000).

I was very happy with the service before, during, and after the repair.

Good luck finding that part!

:lol:

Maybe a new topic, How I survived a dead motor in out going tide waters?


Didn't mean to stomp on the thread, but this caught my eye and I had to make a response.

For future reference, If Mike's outboards on Foster is still around he used to have everything I ever needed.

Its tough to find parts and service for these little motors. I bought my 6hp merc on ebay and ups helped out by dropping it somewhere along the way, broke the cover into two pieces (they said it was not pacakaged properly, so no $ help from them). It took me about a week to make contact with someone who works on this little motor. The drop also broke the fuel float. I've got a good man to work on it now, so its time to go fishing...
Glad to hear you found your source ninj.
