I can't get OEM parts for my trim motor so I am forced to go aftermarket. Is arco my only choice? I need ARC6279. Do you think I can find brushes for my old trim motor at an alternator shop? Thanks for any help.

We carry Arco, MES and Sierra and I can check my merc book next time I get to the shop, we do have the 6279. I will leave the brush question to the more mechanical inclined.

If it's oem you probably can find brushes, but if it's an Arco probably not. They use a lot of parts made in China and the local rebuilders have a hard time finding aftermarket parts. I have used alot of Arco motors, they seem to hold up good.

On my OEM motor its female. I have a picture but need to resize it to post. I had the arco arc6279 in my hands, it has a male slot on it. No way it was going to work. I understand the slot will drive the hex but the genders are not right. I'll post pics when I get back from fishing. Thanks for all the help.

I don't know where you are located but if your close bring it into the shop and I will try to match it up, if you are to far away shoot me a email with your location and I will locate someone for you. We are 20 min. from Millville, NJ. (we are moving our servers and our email and website will be down until Sunday afternoon 3/30)
