electric start conversion

Like to convert 1967 18 hp evinrude fastwin to electric start, has brackets. Not sure how to begin. Looked on marineengine.com for adaptation but no success. Any recommendations? Tired of pulling my guts out.

Thanks, Bill

Re: electric start conversion

The electric start kit is #171845 for about $495. You can also check with various dealers to see if you can buy used parts off an old engine that they are parting out.
