Parts that are no longer available?

17 posts in this topic

Anyone have any ideas on where to locate parts that are no longer available?

I am trying to locate a Merc 8140 Fuel Bowl. I have called around a number of places but have not been able to locate one. It's off an 83' 25hp.

Is Twincity a sponcer?

I see them mentioned often,but dont see their name in Sponcer List? If their not How do the posts refering them stay up when other referals to non sponcers seem to disappear?

There is nothing wrong with recommending any business. We just cannot post direct contact info or web links.

I would also recommend trying Twin City Outboard. They have a huge inventory of early model parts.

Google "Merc 8140 Fuel Bowl" it looks they are about $16 plus shipping.

Also the Carburetor manufacturer would have this part I would assume.

Did that. The places that have them listed don't have any stock of them any more....they just have not updated their sites.

I will call the other places listed here....and possibly try to find the carb manufacturer.

Thanks.

Well, still no luck. I guess this is a hard part to find.

Anyone else have any trick up their sleeve?

Somebody tried to repair this one and it shows. I guess I can try to undo their repair and do my own fix. Not sure exact what they were attempting to repair in the first place....but they did some melting on the bottom of it. It's a plastic bowl.

Anyone know if I can retrofit a new merc carb to this engine? Say fitting a carb from a 1985 20hp Merc to the 1983 25hp merc. Engine looks almost identical other than the carbs. Maybe the ICU maybe be different also.

Hard to think that this engine is just junk.......but maybe so.....

Did you call mercury to see if they have a replacement part? Often part numbers are discontinued and repalced with new part numbers. At times they aren't good about listing the replacement part.

One time I had to take a photo of my tilt and trim switch as it did not resemble any part listed and after taking with 3 separate marine parts dealers with the original part in my hand it was still a mystery. A couple of close up photo revealed two part number and appearance changes.

Good Luck in your search.

I did not call Mercury....but it's worth a shot. Twin City Outboard knew the exact part I was looking for and said they are hard to come by, so I would assume they would know if there was a replacement. Either was I will still call Merc or the carb manufacturer.

I got the engine for cheap....so I need to make sure the rest of it is still in decent operating order before investing any money. It feels like one cylinder may be a little low on compression...but I lost my tester so I need to get another this week.

I am going to try to clean and coat this piece with resin and fiberglass to try to stop the leak.

    • He was talking about updating and upgrading our nuclear weapons,  which aren't related to the middle east.    Getting the 53 brigade combat teams up to readiness standards also will cost money.  
    • How much of that $6 trillion do you suppose is military spending?  I’d venture to guess a large amount of it.  Now while he talks about spending so much in the middle east and ignoring issues at home he apparently wants to add an additional $54 billion to the defense budget which will more than likely be funneled back into the middle eat one bomb at a time.   He might make sense in what he says from time to time but then his actions seem immediately contradict his words. Should we believe the words or the actions more?
    •  Decriminalization only makes small possession and usage kinda illegal.    Laws still have to be upheld.   Mexican cartels still would not be allowed to ship tons of cocaine over the boarder. Doctor still can't write false scripts.  Gangs still cannot run drug dens Staus quo     Just push for complete legalization. Regulate through the government. Lower the cost of product.     Cross your fingers you don't get a Russian heroine epidemic.    Freedom restored.      
    • "We spend $6 trillion in the Middle East, and we have potholes all over our highways and our roads"

      Every now and then it is hard to argue with Trump, the positives aren't many but he is not wrong about everything.
    •     Also, how do you explain the growth rate of U.S. incarcerations since Nixon began the War on Drugs in 1971?   You don't think there is big money involved in prisons?       http://fox6now.com/2017/02/25/private-prison-stocks-up-100-since-president-trumps-win/          
    • DALLAS TRADES BENN to Montreal !!!!!!   Jordie   for a 4th round pick and some no-name....Jordie was bad and playing worse lately
    •   He won't ask anyone's advice - that's a big part of the problem.  But judging by his actions and words, he fully intends to return to the criminalization/prison approach.  You know, the method that was a complete failure in the past.   Why wouldn't pharma be worried about heroin and meth?  They make versions of both, so it is direct competition.  There is also real life evidence to suggest that marijuana can be used as a replacement for opioids for pain, so that is a reason for them to be opposed to the legalization of weed, also.  Do you have a better explanation as to why Trump wants to step up enforcement of federal laws against legal purveyors of marijuana according to their state law, rather than simply changing the FDA/DEA classification?                   They would be comparable, except they have spent close to a trillion dollars on the War on Drugs since Nixon signed it into law,      
    •   Is this speculation or do you have a source for this information?    
    • Without media, you will only get what news from the party in control that they wish to give you. With no freedom of the press, no matter what they say, you will eventually lose more than the 1rst. amendment.  Let's see what happens when the President addresses Congress and if it's a rally speech or a substance speech with policy? If it's just rah-rah??, with the corrupt  media,----make up your own mind.
