    Recently bought this motor for pretty cheap but upon further inspection the whole throttle assembly i.e. the gears were all shot and frozen. Not sure what the proper term is for these but everything needs replaced from the tiller up to the throttle connector inside the motor. Pics would help and will be posted later today. Any help would be great in finding these parts or a simple your screwed would help. T :-/hx

    Hello AH,

    I don't think you have a big problem. There are a great number of those engines out there. Go find an old OMC (Johnson or Evinrude) mechanic or dealer and see what they want for a used control handle. Don't buy the first thing you see and when you have checked around go for the best deal. You may want to think about getting remote controls for that engine instead?

    Best regards,
