How much should it cost to replace a flywheel on a 9.9 kicker. Flywheel Part was 175. Also had thermostats, water pump(impeller) and housing done in the 9.9 and a 150 opti. Just looking for a rough estimate?

Last fall the shop rate of the shop I was in was $115 hour. Plus a bogus charge for shop supplies. Plus disposal fee's, environmental fee's ect, ect, ect If you got outa there with your shirt you did well.

You have, already, learned a valuable lesson. At the very least, get a written estimate before committing to a repair job. With shop rates being what they are, it may make the difference between repair or replacement.
But fear not, you aren't the first person struck by sticker shock, and you won't be the last.

While some dealers are known to lay the pipe to you, what is OK to charge? I've seen many quote prices of parts then act like those parts just jump on there. Time is money.

Copy the question from 71.

Why do you need to replace a flywheel?

In all of my years of owning a boat motor - I have never heard of a flywheel on an outboard motor being replaced because something broke on the flywheel.

What is your need to replace the flywheel?

But if you had all of the work completed already, I would guess that the dealer charged $1,000 or less for everything.

I would think that the total cost of parts - retail price - would be about $300.

Take care

Somehow it came loose and was jumping up when trying to start. Center ring was a bit worn.
