    In all seriousness, try going to the Johnson website and looking for a kit or emailing their customer service. I know that conversion kits are available for some Mercury outboards. Of course the age of the motor may be a factor as well.

    you might be able to find one,depending on age of motor.but,it will probably cost several hundred dollars.depending on the age and condition of your motor,you might be better off looking for a decent used one w/elec. start.,
