Very cool...
by David from Chico, California on August 23, 2013
I was experiencing an intermittent problem starting my 1987 Mercury 2-stroke 115 HP outboard motor. This engine is original equipment on my Alumaweld river boat of the same vintage. With the approach of salmon season, I wanted to be confident I could get the main motor started quickly and reliably when in river currents. I was surprised that I was able to find several different starter motors currently being manufactured, that fit my Merc. Although it was more expensive than the cheapest make on the market, I elected to purchase the Arco starter because of some positive reviews of the company. I also chose to replace the solenoid at the same time, though the two items are separate, and made by different companies. I installed both these parts myself. The straight-6 outboard is easy to work on, and both the removal and installation went smoothly. Starter motor fit perfectly in the mounts. Tested it out first on a local lake. Each time, the Mercury 115 started up more quickly, and I have not encountered any problems since, on subsequent river trips. Seems the new starter motor and solenoid solved the problems I was having. Time will tell, on the motors longevity, but for now I am very happy with it. BTW, the starter I took out was the original and bears a Mercury stamp. I intend to get it rebuilt, and keep as a spare. The install was easy enough that I could imagine doing it while afloat if need arose. Dave Cooper
