TOPIC: Scott outboard question

Scott outboard question 6 months 2 weeks ago #143029

I am restoring a 1959 performer t-bird 14 ft boat and it came with a 40hp Scott outboard. I got the motor running but it is a pullstart and takes a bit of force to get going- has anyone ever converted these to the electric start? i have the service manual for the motor and there are a few geared flywheels on ebay, but it looks like the ignition system would be the wrong size? i know it would be extreme to replace, but i was thinking about using a battery for starting only, and retaining the current ignition.

Also, cables are in okay shape, the outer rubber is worn in a few spots but fully functional. I broke one of the black clips that fits on the motor transmission- do you have an extra or know of any place that has one?

Thanks to all for the vast info on this site...it has helped me alot
