    :0a18:Shucks if he had started drinking we could send him to AA but smoking??:0a1:
    My son and dil were hypnotized and they quit smoking, that probably would not work on your starter..:wink:
    On a more serious note ;few things to check ; make sure you have a good hot battery , good cables and a good contact connection.Also look see if teh starter is not stuck up in the flywheel.
    Good luck and welocme to the board!!

    Jeremy, take the starter off like you would on an automobile. (Disconnect the gattery first). Take it to a repair/rebuild shop. Costs about $50.00 in OKC to have a starter rebuilt. Check that price against a new starter and see which you would prefer. LOL

    Hi spigglejuice,
    I wpuld search on ebay for another starter u might luck up on a good deal if someone is parting out a 115 evinrude. Altamaha Marine in Jesup might be able to repair the old starter...Hope this helps! sandbar
