    Default have sweet running 1955 15 HP evinrude

    Runs beautiful from idle to WO. But because of my age 78+ I find it hard to pull start. (Just had triple bipass heart operation). Does anyone know if a starter could be installed.?

    will sell or trade for an easier starting 15 HP !!.

    let me know!

    A starter can be fitted, but it would be expensive and those things are getting kind of hard to find.

    EDIT: I take that back. The starter didn't come out till 1956. The flywheel and recoil starter on yours won't accommodate it. I suppose it might if you replace the flywheel and leave the recoil starter off (??)
