    Default Where To Find Coil for 15 Gamefisher

    I recently bought a 15hp Gamefisher outboard motor model #225 581501 and i have no spark. after going through everything possible i assume that the coils have to be shot. i looked on the sears parts website and they no longer make the coils. does anyone kno where to find one?
    Thanks Eric

    Sadly your up against the Tecumseh twin CDI wall, if your motor is a good runner and the lower unit was in good shape I would suggest a new unit from CDI for about 250$ you could order it here at marine engines as they are a CDI dealer, if your motor is boarder line junk then not....however work is on going toward a cheap repair but Its a far cry from being a DIY at this point but here is the link to a work around, http://www.siliconchip.com.au/cms/A_110499/article.html
    bear in mind that you will have to build this unit and locate and connect this unit to the trigger coils in each module.


    There is other info available to you but you must be a member of the Eksayahoo group, check the sticky file under Eska for info

    that would be a force built gamefisher, you have a BIM coils, there well know for there sparkless state of existence, you may have bought bad ones since they go bad just setting around.
    google Force BIM coil and see what you find out, genrally brand knew ones from CDI will get you back in buisness $$$


    my post up top is wrong, that fellow has the same coils as you....I didn't look close enough at his model number.... 225 are force built and 217's are ESka....sorry about the wrong info up there dudes
