Help Tip: If you have a question that has not been answered to your satisfaction in the archives, it is always best to start a new thread of your own. By starting your own thread, you will receive the maximum number of views by forum members.

Below are some additional forum policies in hopes of all iboats members will follow, Thank you.

1. Please do not reply to old topics or hijack existing topics. Old topics of a technical nature are like a library book, Please do not write in them.

2. Old topics should be considered archives and used for reference only. Please do not reply to them.

3. Do not take over someone elseís topic (aka hijack) with your own question, even if it is similar. If you have a question that has not been covered to your satisfaction in the archives, it is always best to start a new topic of your own.

4. If you have a question for the original poster (OP) and the topic is over 30 days old, send the OP a PM, he may not even visit the forums any longer, or may not notice your question in the old topic.

5. By starting your own topic, you will receive the maximum number of views by forum helpers that may not even notice your question when itís posted at the end of someone elseís topic. And those answers will be specific to your particular issue.

6. Please do not post to topics that have been inactive for more than 3 months unless you are the original poster. We have very active forums and any topic that remains inactive for that long should be considered "dead". It is especially confusing when there is an entirely new question posted to an old topic.

7. Posting at the end of any topic is considered to be hijacking the original posters topic which in turn subjects the topic to be closed if it continues to happen thus not making it fair to the original poster in the future had for some reason he/she needed to return for additional information or provide an update of the problem solved which is always welcomed within a reasonable amount of time frame.

8. Please note that you should see a red banner pop up near the bottom of each inactive topic asking you not to reply to old topics. The Red banner will read: Please note this topic has been inactive for 90 days. For the best results, please start a new topic.

Thank you all in advance for doing your part in helping iboats run a smooth ship.

  • Need Honda BF5A Info For Parts

    I just bought a 90's? Honda BF5A four stroke. I'm trying to order the charging kit and a water pump kit. The parts guy at ********** needed the rest of the model number to make sure we get the correct part (like BF5A "LA" or whatever it may be). Other than the serial number, all I can find on the motor block is "BADE 1101435". I can't find any kind of reference for the prefix of "BADE" anywhere on the internet. I've checked it three times to make sure it is for sure BADE. Any ideas?

    Go to the http://**********./ website and look up your motor. They have parts diagram of each part of your outboard.

      Well, thats what Ive been trying.....I can't find any model number for the BF5A that has a VIN begining with "BADE". If I could find something beginning with that, it would give the specific model number and year. Even the service guy didn't offer alot of help....

        I think you got a wrong set of s/n numbers. try http://www.**********/parts/search/Ho...KIT/parts.html look under the s/n "BADL"

          You're absolutely right. I didn't notice the prefix on top of the SN tag......I was trying to use a stamp on the side of the block. Turns out it is an BADL instead of BADE making it a BF5AK-LA. I sure appreciate the tips! Now I can order the charging kit and impeller. Thanks alot!

              Re: Need Honda BF5A Info For Parts

              Now for some folloup questions regardinbg the charging system. As I stated above, this motor is a Honda BF5AK LA. The charging system for it is obsolete. I did manage to find a parts diagram for it though.....PN 06310-ZV1-810. Since I can't buy this kit, I looked at a similar charge receptacle kit PN 06310-ZV1-A00 to see if it would be compatable even though it's for motors post 1997 and mine is pre 1997. The flywheel is the same in the newer kit as the flywheel in the pre 1997 kit. Since this would be the primary piece of the kit that would HAVE to match up to my motor as far as the kit fitting or not, would I be wrong by trying to use this kit for my BF5AK LA? It seems like the same exact kit overall except some updating with the rectifiers and coils. Any suggestions?
