Welcome! Need support, you got it. Or share you ideas and experiences.
I got my buddies Eska and want to mess around with trying to get it running. Here is the info I can find - Model # 14139A - I belive it's a 1980 3.5hp Outboard & correct me if I'm wrong - has a head made by Tecumseh. This may sound silly, but I've only been messing around with small engines for a year - my question is, to get items such as a engine gasket set - do I have to go to certifiedpartscorp.com (since I hear they bought the inventory when Eska went out of business) or can I get it from most any small engine repair shop? Would a parts manual for the engine come from Tecumseh or Certified Parts Corp? Lastly - there is a small tag hanging off the Carb that reads 9636 Tecumseh 642-32 - any idea what those numbers are?
I have a gamefisher 3.5 also an oldie; it is actually built by eska for sears and I have gotten parts both lower and upper from sears and from western auto. Hoe that helps. Dionne
You are right, it's a 1980 3.5
You should be able get most power head parts from a small engine shop. Here is another place to get them, it's also a very informative sie: http://www.discount-marine-parts.com/
The numbers on the little tag near the carb are the power head id numbers. Give these numbers when getting parts for the power head. The 14139A is the chassis number. Give this number when getting parts for the lower unit.
Eskas are simple little motors, but are prone to carb problems, so make sure the gas tank and carb are very clean. Have fun!
