Where to buy Suzuki Outboard parts in the UK?

Does anyone have any recommendations for buying Suzuki outboard parts on-line in the UK?
When I do a Google search it always seems to end up at Brownspoint.com - which seems really good and it's easy to find parts, but $45 shipping costs for a $7.50 part is always going to be a problem.
Specifically - I'm looking for the Clutch Shaft Holder for my 1991 DT75 - it was the subject of my reverse gear select problem thread a few weeks ago - and I thought it just needed adjusting - but after a choppy run last weekend the reverse gear is dodgy again - and I can see that the Clutch Shaft holder is fractured at one end, allowing the holder to flex enough to prevent the clutch rod pushing the gearbox into reverse fully.

Of Course - if anyone has a defunct top end for an old DT75, but which used to go into reverse OK, then that would be an option.....
The Part number I think I need is 21311-94702.
Thanks
Trev

International marine supplies are UK based and have online service. Based in South Yorkshire.

Google em but I've added a screen grab of the parts section which also has their contact number. I'd suggest using browns point to obtain the part number prior to your call/search

Any Soozook dealer should be able to supply that part (provided it's still stocked). I use Dale Sailing in Neyland, Pembs. They'll send stuff out by post too.


BTW, I reckon your clutch dog is worn out.


Edit: you could try some araldite/jb weld and a larger OD washer to secure the broken part.

Thanks - If I can't get the part easily (like if it's no longer available) I'll certainly be trying the bigger washer and araldite option!

You may well be right about the clutch dog - but that opens a whole new can of worms to try and fix as I don't think the gearbox has been apart for years (if ever) and I think I'm going to need a special tool to pull the propeller shaft housing away from the gear casing - and one of the bolts sheared off previously whilst I was trying to undo it , so I'll have to get that out as well somehow.
Still - I can live in hope - it might just be the clutch shaft holder....

On our recent trip over to the boatshow last month, and by amazing coincidence we spotted this distinctive rig travelling down the M3! I believe it is the very engine in question.

And as you can see - it travels forwards very well - good job we didn't try reverse on the M3 though!

International Marine have been helpful for me in the past too.

For small inexpensive parts they are probably the best bet, but I've found that the price of postage from Brownspoint for more expensive stuff is normally more than covered by the lower cost of parts in the states.

The interbal gearbox parts I purchased a couple of years ago were half the cost delivered from the states than I could get them in the UK.

Cool. Remember to leave a space around each "Interest" so that you can fill in all the friends & relations later, when you get to know them better...

After 4 days of cajoling, I've finally managed to get the prop shaft housing out without breaking it.
DHD - Here's a photo of the clutch dog - I think you might be right!

Good work mate.
That looks worst than my knackered one you have hit the nail on the head. Have you drilled out the snapped bolt yet?

Anyway - finally managed to get the bold drilled out today and ordered the new clutch dog, bolts, seals, gaskets, etc.
If the parts arrive before Xmas putting it back together will keep me busy for a few days.

Ah - the parts got a bit delayed in Customs over Xmas and the new year - not a big surprise really - but they finally arrived at my door last Friday (6th Jan), which wasn't too bad really as I ordered them from the USA on 20th Dec.
The Nacho Run on Sunday was my excuse for not trying to get it back together at the weekend, but I'm hoping to start the re-assembly tomorrow if I get a few hours free.
Fingers crossed that I remembered to order all the right seals and gaskets - and that they fit!
