Thanks Joel,

It is at a shop now. What I want to do is obtain a back-up and keep it
aboard. I plan on leaving for an extended trip to the Bahamas and ????

I have taken photos of the motor and hope to obtain a new one shortly.

Roy ,Unless it is completely destroyed or solid with rust ,I am all but
certain that any good automotive/truck starter and alternator repair
could easily replace the consumable components and it would be as good
as a
new one for !/5 the cost of a new one ,if you can still find a new one
.Additionally ,any good marine shipyards' electrical shop will find it
to rebuild this motor for you .They are really very simple .Even I can
do it
and have .

All the best,
Joel F. Potter
