I just took my two month old 5hp Tohatsu to the dealer for it's initial service
Only $50 and they should have torqued all the bolts, checked gear oil
, carburetor, timing and a whole heap of other things.
I was told that it was necessary even though it had 2 hours tops on it.
My question is : Is this service
really necessary? This is not an expensive motor
Mostly when I buy something these days I use it until it is stolen, superseded
or (very rarely) breaks.
Can I do the service myself?
