The starter on the 9.9 Yamaha kicker I bought the other day is frozen up. it is kind of odd because the rest of the motor under the cowling looks like new - no signs of corrosion rust etc. it even smells new. The outside shows a very small amount of corrosion in places but basically the motor has seen little useage.
In any event I obviously need to fix or replace the starter. Is there anyone in Anchorage that does starter repairs. can I send it off, or break down and pay a small fortune for a new one?
