I am considering purchasing new 25hp Merc Sea Pro. The motor is pull start only. I would like to have both pull and electric start. The dealer says they don't make a electric start kit....

Do you experts know if there is a electric start conversion kit for a 25hp Mercury Sea Pro?

tks

I have done it...

This guy did it here: http://www.customgheenoe.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=18085&postdays=0&postorder=asc&start=90

You will need the starter, flywheel ring gear, solenoid, starter button harness, starter button housing, and misc wiring.

Thanks Matty, that's my conversion you referenced. :cool:

Fly Wrecker, you don't need a conversion kit as long as you understand how things are supposed to be wired up. Basically, it's just a couple of switches wired together. I recommend you gather up the part numbers you need for all the major components and then watch ebay and CL. You can save yourself a ton of $$ that way.

I am very glad to know that it is possible.

We are the sellers of the sea pro engines.
To convert the motors to electric start or remote you will have to get the parts from Tohatsu. It is possible I have had customers do this.

What's the reason for replacing the flywheel?
I didn't replace the flywheel, I added the ring gear to it. Pull start motors don't come with the ring gear that has the teeth which the gear on the starter needs to spin the motor.

I bought an old, cheap flywheel so I could remove the ring gear from it and move it to my newer flywheel. Saved almost $100 that way. :cool:
