I have four Johnson '57 35 hp motors in various conditions
I am now specifying my own parts and searching the internet with the part #s.
Ebay has many new old stock parts listed and many used parts too.
I also have a local dealer that gives up to 25% off for OMC and BRP parts.
I would stick with original parts, no aftermarket.
If I can be forgiven for promoting my family's business, besides being a Mercury dealership for 50+ years, we traded, repaired, and resold many Evinrude and Johnson trade-in outboards. As a result, we do have quite a library of parts manuals, and we do stock parts, and additionally have several sources. We have been fortunate to sell a few people on this site both Mercury and Evinrude or Johnson items (Thank You). We would welcome a try at helping with Evinrude or Johnson parts, just as we do with Mercury parts.
I think the Lark is a nice looking outboard. My motor is just a little rough. I think it will look ok when I get finished But, I don’t think it will have the polished look that many have. If I can find a few miscellaneous parts, maybe I will be surprised.
I have a 57 Evinrude Lark 35hp. It has good compression and is complete. It is not the prettiest motor around but has potential and matches my boat. Question is, is there a “best” place to buy parts? I plan to replace all ignition parts, build the carb, and convert to single line fuel pump. Not sure about lower unit yet since I have not pressure or water tested. I have located what I need but from different sources. If that’s what I have to do then I will go that route. Just checking to see what recommendations are out there. Thanks for the help. Added a photo of boat just for fun.
