Evinrude parts/service??

I normally get a local outboard shop to service my motor but as this is the expensive option this year I'm going the DIY route.

Anyone recommend a dealer that isn't a stealer for service items for my Evinrude?

I've got some Sparks already at a very reasonable £35 for 6.

I can't seem to find a fuel filter for less than £18 + delivery I need other service items like gear oil and grease too so a one stop shop will be very helpful.

Thanks for the replys.

Because I needed a couple of litres of gearbox oil and that obviously put up the cost of postage I decided it was cheaper to source everything localy. In the end I managed to get a fuel filter for £10, the oil was a tad more expensive at £37 for 2 litres but that did include an oil pump.

Thanks for your help
