  1. Does anyone in Columbus have experience in outboard motors? I have a 74 5.5hp Evinrude that needs the re-coil spring for the flywheel/pull start installed. It looks easy but I do not have enough mechanical experience to fix it. It appears to be just a coiled spring metal that fits in there nicely but I can not make it fit. Thanks!
  2. Did you get it fixed yet. If not, I could help you. You should also replace the pull start rope now while the assembly is apart. I live in north Columbus, and have the required tools and repair manuals.

  3. PM sent. Looking fwd to hearing back from you. Thanks!
