Andrew, exactly the same happened to me in the middle of the sound of Jura last year - there's a thread about it somewhere on here. Call Hank at American Marine, he'll sort you out. (Past bed time and quietly mellow, so can't remember phone number.) They don't have a web site, but Google them and you get a number from one of the directories that will come up. I think they're in the Midlands somewhere.

They are major importers of Mercury parts and speak to the factory in the US every morning. They got mine from there no probs - even though Belgium couldn't get them. Great chap, really helpful.

It was quite expensive, but the kit includes a complete wiring loom too, which is important as things are slightly different. (Circa 400 I think) Best of luck. Tony

Have purchased non genuine from US eBay before for an older Evinrude and a Mariner. Both times with success and at about one third the asking price from dealers in Australia.

Just one word of warning, Google forums for the brand they are trying to sell you as some get great reviews and others don't.

Also go for the seller with lots of sales and feedback.

So, I found the genuine mercury part in the US, they will not ship outside Due to Mercurys Rules and Regulations that they work under, the mercury part number is 804278t11, they will however ship yamaha parts to Ireland
(part #67f 81960 12), does anyone know if the yamaha regulator/rectifier work with the mercury engine? it sounds as if it will, I know the engine blocks are the same but is the electrical system? and from what nan-ber described of his yamaha regulator it sounds the same as mine!?!?
