Why don’t you try a starter motor alternator rebuilding company ? I just had a motor rebuilt here on Long Island last week.

To all fellow Amelians
I have a 1988 Mango with a 4-236 Perkins engine with 13000 hours. Engine runs great, no smoke and good oil analysis. Unfortunately the engine starter has failed. I’m in a busy marina in Connecticut and over last 3 months they have found 4 replacement starters but none have worked… either they did not fit, had wrong voltage (my boat is 12 volts) or defective actuator. I am now wondering if I will ever be able to secure new starter and I am now considering a new engine…
I am asking for any advice on what options I have for a new engine… Any opinions would be greatly appreciated..
