Re: Outboard motor charging upgrade
I'm having a bit of trouble identifying exactly what I need for this addition. I have a brand new Mercury 4hp four stroke that, according to the manual, can accept this conversion. What exactly is the name of what it is that I have to add?
Tohatsu Repair Kits
I had a 35 HP Evinrude with charging/electric start. A volt meter showed a slight increase in voltage over the static charge, but only at high RPM's.
All the specs I have seen say from about 5 to 6 amps, which is not much.
Looks like you would need the alternator & rectifier kit, a dealer should know
