mercruiser charging system

The black box is apparently fried in my 1986 mercruiser 170. Should I replace it or change over to an alternator system?

Submitted by: jim

The water cooled voltage regulator will cost about the same as converting over to a real alternator. Make the change and double the charging amperage.

They are called a cable gland.

In the marine industry, the common term is Cable Outlet.

I am looking for a shifter switch located inside the throttle assembly for a 1972 Mirror craft

I am looking for a shifter switch located inside the throttle assembly for a 1972 Mirror craft. It has the original 100hp johnson outboard on it. This is a small part about the size of a half dollar. Any ideas?


You will need to contact a vintage Johnson dealer for that part.
