Cracked block

Posted by – August 8, 2009


So, we finally bought an outboard a few days ago. It’s an older 3.5hp Tohatsu. It didn’t look great but it ran fine and we were about to park the car so we didn’t have much choice. We figured it would get us by for a bit and serve as a decent backup once we find a better one. I pulled it apart to clean it up a bit and a bolt sheared off in the block. After two days of trying to get it out I have a handfull of broken drill bits and extractors and a cracked block which makes it not worth repairing. Ugh.
