Hi Camkev, If I were you I would first look for the part number here
http://www.crowleymarine.com/product_support/johnson_evinrude.cfm
and then either search on ebay US or directly form a store.

A mechanic who works on Johnson is may well have one lying around for parts, and I would try some of the yards like Lonzu, Tecnomarine, and maybe even ask RLR in case they have an old one in their workshop

Tks Guys.

@Benri..i already contacted crawley marine.Waiting to collect the part from the meccanic tomorrow morning so i will know which part it is exactly.I already got stuff last year from crawley and they are very efficient.I wanted to get it from malta to speed things up but i think it's best to get it from abroad.Hope i will have it running for the alongu season Wink
