Mercruiser Sterndrive Starters

Mercruiser Starters application chart allows you to shop by year model and serial to find the right starter for Mercruiser inboard and sterndrive engines. The chart also cross refences the Sierra new starters, remanufactured starter to the original Mercruiser starter. Simply sort by model to see the parts that fit your engine. 

While sterndrive power dates from WWI, it was not until 1948 that Mercury Marine combined a racing car engine and an outboard to create a marine propulsion system more powerful than any outboard available at that time. The concept is simple: the outdrive unit carries power from an inboard engine. This is mounted above the waterline and outboards through the transom and down to power the propeller below the waterline.

Advantages of a stern driven system as compared against outboards include higher available horsepower. The transom does not have cutouts to accommodate an outboard, either. A stern without a protruding powerhead makes it easier for passengers to embark and to disembark or for sport fishing off the back of the craft. Today, stern driven crafts account for over 80% of the marine market.

If the sterndrive has a disadvantage it is that many of this system’s working parts are exposed to the elements. Parts which can degrade in salt water include hoses, bellows, and oil lines. Additionally, two of the major sterndrive parts which can be damaged by corrosion are starters and alternators.
