Default Where to buy parts for older OMC's ?

I've got a 1994 Evinrude and a 1999 Johnson motor to buy parts for.

Where do you guys with older OMCs get your parts from?

Depends on what you're looking for. I have good luck with original OMC parts on ebay (sometimes). I run twin 1989 70 HP, which was a popular motor, so parts seem to be widely available.

Hope this helps.

Try Sea Way Marine in Washington State
also Marine engine dot com has an online catalog and lists available OEM and aftermarket parts when the OEM is NLA.
Ebay too

I've used all the above except the Washington state recommendation. Not sure where you're located but if near a coast I'm sure there are plenty of local suppliers too. At least that has been my experience in the Carolinas.

Trixie's Landing has been in business since 1948 and has the largest group of outboard parts I have ever seen in one place. I have not called them in many year's, but when I did the always said the same thing. "We have it...somewhere. Bring it and we will match it up!" They are located in Bayville, NJ (732) 269-5838. I had a 67' Johnson Super Seahorse 80 hp(the largest motor they made in 1967) that was 20+ years old. They had seem to alway have what you are looking for.

The Outboard Exchange usually has a good supply of used parts.

An asditional thought here is that ebay (Amazon too) has the ability to choose "North America" or "US" only suppliers.

I do try and keep my money in the US, but there may be suppliers that buy from overseas and stock in the US. Having the OEM p/n can sometimes eliminate non-OEM crapola.

Do a little due diligence to prevent yourself from potentially getting crap products.

Crowley Marine is a good starting point.

Well, 1990's motors don't quite qualify as "older" in my book, though sometimes I have to remind myself that that era was half a lifetime ago! You should be able to get most stuff from former OMC dealers and Mercury has taken them over so I guess that's your "OEM" source now. My guess is that not a few former dealers will liquidate their OMC stuff as they're forced to sell other makes, so look for salvagers to be selling it all on eBay, etc.

Trixie's sold their inventory a few years back. The owner updated me today. Sorry this was not helpful.

Just to update this thread, my experience dealing with Crowley Marine has been positive. I will definitely be using them again the next time I need parts.

picked these up as spares on ebay, freshwater used OMC Cobra 4.3 outdrive and Cobra transom mount.
I have many other spares as well, spare carb, fuel pump, alternator, power steering hydraulic cylinder, exhaust Y pipe, distributor, points & condenser sets, ignition wires, ESA module etc. The idea is to anticipate what might wear out on an over 30 year old boat and have the parts ahead of time so you are not searching in the middle of a season.
