K&O Mercury Mark 55 wrap around for the cowl:  Made by Mark and Ron these are really incredible reproduction wrap arounds.  They were made exactly the same way as the original K&O motors and look great.  They will fit all of the K&O Mercury Mark 55 cowls from 1955 to 1957.  The original wrap arounds are usually badly tarnished.  These will really make your motor look like new again!  The motor in the picture has the new one on it.

Joe Cain's Reproduction K&O boxes and Fork Terminals and Wires:

K&O Reproduction Boxes:  A great reproduction box that fits most of the full scale K&O motors.  The quality is excellent and really adds to the look and appearance of your motor.  These boxes won't work with the wider K&O V-4 motors.  For those motors use the larger boxes below.  The real boxes are very expensive, sometimes going for more than $100 by themselves.  Joe's prices are very, very low.  Contact him for more details at:

Prices when I put this page together: $2.99 each plus shipping!  Now, that's

LARGE K&O Reproduction boxes:  These are the same great quality as the boxes above, except that these will be able to hold your wider OMC V-4 motors.  These are terrific!  The box is not cheaply made.  You can feel how well made they are.  The cardboard is thick and strong.  These will easily fit the Evinrude and Johnson 1958 to 1962 50 HP to 75 HP motors!  To buy an original K&O box could cost you over $100 so these are a steal!  Joe's prices are very, very low.  Contact him for more details at:

Reproduction fork terminal and wire for the Smaller K&O toy outboards: A reproduction fork terminal/wire for the K&O toy outboard.  As you can see from the pictures it's made for K&O models that have the two smaller individual wires.  All materials are new and made as close as possible to the original.

A complete set consist of:  2 white wires, 2 fork terminals w/red & blue shrink tube.  The wires will be long enough to allow for connection to the motor and for the security loop which prevents someone from pulling the wire loose from the electric motor.  Each wire will be approximately 10" from tip of terminal to the end of wire.  Since the original wires weren't soldered to the terminal, Joe compress the terminal to secure the wire.

Joe prefers to supply the complete set, but can supply just the terminals, or just the wire.  Please contact Joe for pricing at:

FYI: Joe intends to make the larger scale wire and terminal fork in the near future so keep checking here.

LARGE Scale Reproduction Fork Terminals for K&O outboard motors:  These are for the larger K&O toy outboard motors.  The terminals above are for the small scale motors like the 1958 Evinrude 35 HP.  These fork terminals are used on the larger scaled motors like the 1958 Evinrude 50 HP.  Use these terminals for all motors from 1954 to 1957 and the larger scale motors from 1958 to 1962.

Bernie Wagers' reproduction decals:
Contact Bernie at:

K&O Reproduction decals:  Bernie Wagers has put together several good quality reproduction decals for some of the K&O motors.  Currently he has available the 1955 Evinrude Big Twin, the 1956 Evinrude Big Twin, the 1955 Johnson 25 HP; 1956 Johnson 30 HP and the 1957 Johnson 35 HP.  The price as of this posting is $25 for a complete set for one motor.  If you need decals this will certainly make your motor much more valuable.  The pictures here don't do them justice.  The motors in the pictures have the new decals on them.  They come on a full sheet like the ones in the pictures and are water applied.  You must first clear coat them before applying them and then after to keep them water proof.  Contact Bernie at:
