Never jeopardize safety and performance or risk expensive repairs by fitting a non Genuine Mercruiser part or using non Mercruiser trained service personnel.
Genuine Mercruiser Starter Motors are made to exacting standards to withstand the harsh salt water environment in which marine outboards engines operate. Some websites claim that their non OEM Starter Motors meet or exceed the quality of a genuine Mercruiser part. This is clearly not the case. They are always inferior and in some cases dangerous. Only fit a Genuine OEM Mercruiser Starter Motor to your engine to ensure the safety of you and your family out at sea.
