Evinrude 25hp electric start on my 30hp??

Guys,

1st post here, but a long time reader.

My question is I have a 1981 Evinrude 25hp with electric start that works fine. Then I came across a deal on a great condition 1985 Evinrude 30hp manual start. Will the 25hp electric start set up work on my 30 hp?

Thanks

Shrouds are different for sure. Flywheel changes and stator and rectifier. With minor changes everything else should work.

My flywheel has the ring gear teeth from the factory, or the previous owner added it?
Eyeing it up it looks like my manual cover will fit over the starter motor.
Stator and other wiring I don't care about, it'll be on the charger every night.

All I did for you was outline the parts that were different. Whether or not you choose to use them is up to you.
Nice that the flywheel already has the ring gear on it.
