Not really sure what I was expecting out of a 60 dollar starter but still.......half a year? Sounds like from some of the stuff I'm reading online I was just lucky to not be in the water.

Mercruiser/Quicksilver parts can be bought ANYWHERE! Try West Marine or the local Bayliner dealer. Do you have a part number for the OEM starter?

I just bought this one. I dont like ordering online and my dealer sold it to me for cost $130 plus tax so I went that way. If I have an issue then I can get a new one quicker than fighting back and fouth online.

Looks like that should do the job.

I got one ordered from baws. Atleast I know I'll be taken care of and it will get here quick. Called a few places and everyone gave me the "well we don't have 1 but we can get it in a week or 2".

I'll keep this updated since its probably the strangest thing I've seen and thats coming from my weird freaking boat.

Well not good news. Got the new starter in (pita again) and the starter was def toast however the boat will not start and it sounds pretty bad. Looks like it tries to turn and then locks after about a turn. Sounds pretty nasty and def some clunking. Not too sure what changed after 5mo of sitting in a heated garage but it sounds pretty mangled. Going to pull the plugs today and see if it will rotate but not the outcome I was expecting.

I'm thinking your starter is either too close or too far away from the ring gear. I know it will be almost impossible to check the fit, but that is what needs to be done.

I went through this on a truck. I slapped a new starter in thinking "no shims on the old one, no shims on the new one." It ended up being too close to the ring gear. The ring gear isn't perfectly round due to manufacturing tolerances and when the "lobe" would come by the starter it would wear the bushing on the pinion. After enough wear on the pinion bushing, the pinion was sloppy and was chewing up gears on the ring gear. Guess who had to replace a flex wheel on an old 4WD.

Good luck on this, I really feel for you.
