Getting the Right Engine Parts
Last Updated: 6/25/2019
We stock thousands of quality engine parts from vendors like Quicksilver, Champion, Fram, Racor, Sherwood, Jabsco, NGK, Sierra and many others. While this is great for customers, it can also lead to confusion due to the vast number of parts available (and the many more we can Special Order for you). To simplify your ordering tasks, we have some hints which should help you get the part you need for your engine:
If you know the manufacturer’s part number (for example, from OMC, Mercury, Volvo, Crusader, Chrysler, Chris Craft), we can generally find the equivalent Sierra part number using the Sierra Catalog’s Manufacturer Cross Reference. This is more or less a guarantee of getting a perfect replacement, and their catalog is roughly the size of a large city’s telephone directory.
If you know your engine’s year, horsepower or displacement, model and brand, we can generally find the part number that you need. Since Evinrude has made over twenty 4hp outboard engines, don’t expect us to find the answer with less information!
If you have the sterndrive make, horsepower and serial number, year and model, we can generally find the sterndrive part that you need. However, some sterndrives are out of production, and parts are hard to come by. We can also order replacement upper and lower units, and complete replacement engines for many MerCruiser, OMC and Volvo sterndrives.
Finally, if you have a part which is made by a supplier to the engine manufacturer (Autolite, Prestolite, Barr, Osco) we can also cross-reference and locate the equivalent Sierra replacement part.
Check our online Engine Parts Selector, or if that doesn’t help, Our Product Advisors are available to help track down the replacement parts you need. They can navigate through Sierra’s phonebook-sized catalog or those of our other suppliers, and use their boating experience to answer questions about our products.
