    Call Chuck and Dave's on Reno. Ask for Dave.

    Did you break it off completly? If it's still just cracked it works fine. At least it did for me.

    BTW.... how is that old motor doing?

    Try vintage outboard motors in Washington, state if you have no luck elsewhere. Good luck, Jack.

    Jermery go to this site and e-mail these folks. Very good to do business with. They should have one. I looked thru my junk and found one but it was busted all the way down the side.

    I have been fishing El Reno every weekend. Yet to catch one but I'm setting my sights high.

    I had a good run with the clicker, bent the pole in half and good thing the clicker was on. If it had not been on I would have lost the pole and reel. I will be there this coming weekend. I'm not sure what night because we are going to prefish lake Sardis for the year end classic.

    You should look in your e-mail for my number. If you can't find it send me a PM.

    Anyhow good luck finding a handle for that motor. I'm glad it is running well for you. BTW..... If you ever want to sell it; I want first dib's on buying it back.

    Hey I forgot I have one more stored in the barn. I'll have to check in the day light though. Wouldn't want to pull out something that has no shoulders and long and slithery.:lol: I might have just what you need. The handle and grip were both good.

    It throttles from the tiller. You twist it like a motorcycle.

    Jeremy I have one on an older 18 h/p that might work. Empty your PM box and I'll get you addy and send it to you. I didn't relize I still had that old skelton still there until I saw it on the saw horse. While prowling around in there I found a complete 35 h/p johnson electric start. I might see if that thing still runs. That thing is tiller steer to'
