Tohatsu Repair

Hi – Here is the story and news on progress of the “Tohatsu project”.

In july 2013 I bougth a 12 hp Tohatsu outboard engine at a garage sale for the great sum of 250 SEK. A bargain – I thought – but perhaps not….. (?)   It turned out to be very hard to get spare parts to it. In general – not a very popular engine nowadays…

New plugs and cables …

The only spare part available (in the whole world) for this engine is the impeller repair kit – fits a lot of other Tohatsus, so that´s why.

The reverse was totally stuck – but was restored rather quickly, actually…

To be fitted with the items below.
