Outboard Repair in KC Area

Postby cyoung24 » Tue Jan 22, 2013 8:02 pm

I have a 7.5hp '84 Sears Gamefisher that won't start. I picked it up a couple years ago off Craigslist. The guy had a external electric fuel pump to run it cause he said the part was not available to fix the regular pump. I know nothing about engines so I was looking for someone to fix it if possible so I can have it for fishing season. If anyone on here can fix motors or knows someone or a place that can do it at a reasonable price around Kansas City I would appreciate it. Thanks.

I've heard good things about them unfortunately I also heard they charge $100 an hour.

U.S. Boatworks on Osage avn. in Kansas City Kansas . Knowledgeable , reasonable , and also a duck hunter. I have used them a number of times with great success . They also have an extensive stock of NOS parts . You may get lucky and find the part you need. I would also recommend trying an Internet search for the fuel pump part you need, there is a good chance someone out there has one . Good luck .
