    Default Gale Buccaneer 5hp

    I picked up a 5hp Gale Buccaneer at an auction for $25. After the new spark plugs, the power head fired right off. Then once in the water in forward I had the familiar sound and feel of “hitting a log”. No, I did not hit a log, but I know that is typically the clutch dog slipping out of gear. I have taken the lower unit apart and have discovered the clutch dog and f & r gears are all in real good shape. However the U-shaped (Lever shifter…I think this is the technical name) is wore down. The typical nice rounded top or tips have been ground to a sharp point.

    I am trying to locate a part number to attempt to locate a replacement part. However the online resources for Gale motors are few and far between. Can anyone assist in finding the part number? Here are the specs

    Gale
    Buccaneer
    Year: Unknown
    Model #: 5D20B (That is a zero not the letter O)
    5HP

    Any help would be great. Thanks, Jeremy

    http://www.aomci.org/ Someone there will be able to help. Most likely it can be interchanged with one from a Johnson or Evinrude of the same vintage which is 1962 to be exact.

    That is a 1962 model - you may want to try www.twincityoutboards.com - they are a huge recycler and have tons of parts for (vintage) outboards.

    They can be a little "pricey", but really do have everything...
