1986 Mastercraft Indmar 350

I just purchased this boat and it needs a new starter. Any suggestions on the best place to purchase online?

Your saying a Indmar 350 Chevrolet?

Discount Inboard Marine is the place to go. But I am wondering if you have a 350 or 351 and being an '86 is it an Indmar or a PCM?

An 86 should be a 351 PCM 240 hp engine unless someone has changed it out ??

'86 was the transitional year for the changeover from PCM to Indmar and both marine engine companies had a 350 Chevrolet available as a option.
Maybe the poster can post a picture of the engine just to be sure what he's got, in case he is mistaken.

Harold should have referenced you on this one because I was not completely sure on the year of change over. Thanks.

But iit is/was not made with spark protection features and could blow your boat up if there are gasoline fumes in the bilge, RIP.

Your asking for problems, You are putting your love ones and friends at risk. Hi risk of blowing up your boat. Please get a marine starter.
