If possible PLEASE use the QUOTE FORM instead for part number & price inquiries,
you WILL get a much faster response.
Due to the volume of business during the day we can't always
respond immediately to phone calls.
Please DO NOT phone us for engine problem diagnosis; we simply do not have time during the workday for "on demand" troubleshooting. You may use the Technical Assistance form below for that. During slower periods during the day we can then research your problem and reply with possible solutions. We do not do repairs.

"QUICK QUOTE" INQUIRY FORM --THIS IS THE PREFERRED
METHOD, AS YOU WILL GET MUCH QUICKER RESULTS THAN LEAVING A PHONE
MESSAGE. There are only 2 of us and there is limited time during the course of the day to devote to phone calls. Most common parts are listed here on the site and are easy to find. If you are on EARTHLINK please pre-authorize us for emails. The earthlink auto-responder usually does not work and we can not contact you.
Use this for inquiries about parts NOT
LISTED on the site or if somerthing is unclear. You may also use the parts help email HERE. If you do, please make sure you have manufacturer, HP, serial and model numbers of the motor. If inquiring about an order status or problem please include the order number you were given; if not available, then at minimum the name and phone number used on the order so we can search for it. If you follow these guidelines we can have all the information ready when we reply to your inquiry.
Please DO NOT use either method for technical questions, The form for
that is above.
to know what motor you have?
Here are the model-year guides.
US-made Mariners (which is most motors over 40 HP) use same SERIAL NUMBER blocks as Mercury motors- -
the Japanese Mariners are not listed there yet
Did you check out the MOTOR
MANUFACTURERS' INDEX pages? There are
a LOT of parts available here, as well as info on fixing YOUR motor!
If you know what you need, fill out the quick form at the bottom
and I'll get right on it.
If you have an ESKA,
SEARS TED WILLIAMS, WARDS AIR COOLED ETC. Built by ESKA, and need parts, here is help. Call Vern at
Certified Parts Corp. His number is: 1-800-356-0777.
They don't have everything as they stopped
making ESKA in 86, but they bought all remaining stock. They also have
parts for CLINTON.
you need parts for "antiques",
put an ad at the ANTIQUE
OUTBOARD SITE. I don't have any real old
parts, and cannot take time to locate them. That's up to you! Use
the same sources above for obsolete motors such as: Scott-McCullough,
Martin, Chris-Craft, Oliver, etc.
DID YOU READ THE FAQ
HAVE YOU READ THE
is an apocryphal story about "photographer-to-the
great" Yosuf Karsh (may have misspelled his name) who used
to charge $10,000 a portrait against an old army blanket. He would
place his subjects there, fiddle a minute with the lights, and
shoot off a few photos (believe he used an 8 x 10 so had to change
the plates) but in all, about 5 to 10 minutes. He would then tell
his clients he had finished.
What? They would say, $10,000
and you just took 5 minutes?
Ah, came the answer, but
it has taken me 40 (or maybe it was 50) years to be able to take
a beautiful portrait in 5 minutes....
Same as the famous surgeon
called into the operating room, who examines the patient carefully,
reviews the x-rays and steps up to the table and makes his incision.
He then turns to the other surgeons, says "You may continue" and
walks out. The patient, aghast at the $10,000 invoice for 5 minutes
and one cut, complains. The surgeon replies, "The $10,000 is for
knowing where to cut."
And you're right, Bunky.
This does apply to many of us. Most of us are quite dedicated to
our profession, craft or trade. We work very hard to stay up-to-date,
remain knowledgeable and creative. We do a great deal 'behind the
scenes' to be able to make our work look effortless.
I suppose that's why Doctors,
Clergy and CPAs all worked hard to keep their professions cloaked
in mysticism. The more obscure their work, the more they could charge.
So be glad you have the
MASTERTECH'S expert advice available here, and please support my
effort with a parts order!!
THANKS! GOOD LUCK!
