outboard motor breakers.

anyone know any reasonable motor breakers? Tried BHM, and outboard spares unlimited.
i'm Looking for a trim tilt pot for a yamaha 2 stroke 75/80/85/90 possibly 115V4.
Or any other pot that can be engineered to fit. at 130 for a genuine one i would rather adapt a new mercury one to fit as they seem to be around $20 on ebay us. It may take a day to engineer but will save me enough dough for a day on the boat

I expect you'll have looked, but there's a couple of guys breaking yams on ebay at the moment, eg.:

The seller in the first Link is good. Enquired about a few things and he came back straight away having the part.
Asked him what parts he had for mine out of interest and he came back with enough to build a new engine! Even had a brand new gearbox but for 600. Good job I don't need one.

A dealer price for a new gearbox would set you back a whole lot more than that!

The one of those listings is a chap called Stuart in Teignmouth, He breaks outboards and has loads of yams, and was quite helpful.
He said the senders are rubbish and dont last long and dont bother with it.
so its back to plan A and make a bracket to mount a stainless bowden cable and put a 50p maplin pot up in the powerhead where its dry
