  1. I just bought an elgin 5.5 boat motor (my 1st mistake) and the bendix gear was broken, at least i think that is what its called. Does anyone have one or know where i can get one? Or is there any way to get one made? I live in Navarre and ive looked at a couple places but they said they cant get anything, and that they dont even make the elgin motor anymore. But if anyone can help it would be greatly appreciated.
  2. i dont know if its called a bendix gear. But i know its a plastic piece on the pull start that turns the flywheel.
