My motor has about 50 hours on it. What's the dollars ballpark on that service? Thanks!
You might want to double check but I dont think there is any service needed at 50 hours. Except changing the fluid in the lower end
MM is right, look at page 75 in the Owners Manual for the maintenance schedule. http://www.tohatsu.com/tech_info/own_man_pdfs/Toh_40B_50B_70B_90B_115A_TLDI.pdf
what i neglected to mention is that the motor is a 2008. does that span of time with no service matter? thanks again.
Yes it does, you need a complete service including water pump, all filters, and oils. Don't forget about the water/fuel seperator.
I don't work on Tohatsu but a yamaha, merc, or zuke would be somewhere between $350-$500 keep in mind this is for a complete service which is what you need for a 2008 even though you only have 50hrs.
It cost anywhere from $5,000 to $8,500.
Depending on which brand you choose to replace it with.
I'm only kidding. I have no idea. I know getting my Tohatsu serviced was a real mission. I know it was under $100. But that was just lower unit oil, new seals, motor oil, oil filter, and spark plugs. No water pump. I didn't own it long enough to require a water pump service.
Oh yea, my 'hatsu was a four stroke...
I actually contemplated the 50HP for a minute but the above 59 sec changed my mind.
On a side note, Those engines (hatsu) there is time frame also, not just hours. If boat sits a while you may want to use suggested time instead of hours.
Do it yourself and save the money it's easy I do all my own
