Can I buy parts for my MasterCraft at the local auto parts store? You got any part numbers?
The answer is (1) maybe, and (2) yeah, some of them. For the record, you can buy them for Chevys, too. But I don't have any part numbers for those. If someone wants to email me some, I'll be happy to add them.
First of all, there are some automotive parts you DO NOT want to use on a boat. A few of these are (1) Carburetor (you can marinize one, but it won't work out of the box), (2) Alternator, and (3) starter. You want marinized versions of all of these things. The reason is simple. You don't want your boat to explode. The marine alternators and starters are sealed to prevent spark. The marinized carb has bent j-tubes (and probably some other things) that keep gas where it's supposed to be. There may be some other things, but they've slipped my mind at the moment. These part numbers are not exclusive. You can probably cross reference them to whatever brand you prefer.

To me, this forum is about love of inboard boats. It is about the sharing of information and, on a good day, some humor. It is not about post count, brand of boat, or any other superfluous labels that lend themselves to a false sense of superiority. Please, respect one another, try to pass on accurate information, and keep your eye on the ball.
