Re: Tohatsu 6hp sailpro spares?

Have yet to find non-ethanol gas anywhere in Southern California except some racing fuel at $10-20/gal.

A house is but a boat so poorly built and so firmly run aground no one would think to try and refloat it.

Carb rebuild kit, spark plug, impeller.

Thank you for this info. My 2018 Tohatsu 9.8 started running irregularly, especially mid throttle, and can cut off at the wrong time. I'll look into replacing the fuel pump. Any other tips for this outboard?
Best Regards.

I would first clean the gas line on the motor, and change the fuel filter before I went to the expense and time of replacing the fuel pump. You might want to keep a spare pump though. I would also change the plugs or at least check them as they can tell you a lot about your engine
