I'm sure they need more grease than they've had.
Some Tohatsus have major corrosion problems. Apparently some were built w alloys that just dont hold up well in salt water. Ive got one sitting in my workshop right now that I can literally pull chunks of aluminium off of by hand...debating where it is worth it to rebuild because most of the housing needs to be replaced. while youre at it...look for other spots w corrosion problems (bubbles under paint) and clean them up and repaint...may buy you some more time.

Re: Tohatsu mounting bolt stripped

I registered as a member because I really wanted to thank The Alpine for the picture he posted of his modification. I had the same problem and didn't know what to do. After seeing your post, I went to the hardware store and bought just what I needed for $5 and it works GREAT!!!
I am SO HAPPY right now and I can't thank you enough.
