    BigRed Just keep casting ...

    I have a Tohatsu M40D. Under the hood, the right side has a series of linkages. She won't hold her idle in neutral and she sputters and complains during low speed trolling. She doesn't like starting unless I advance the manual throttle before cranking her.

    I bought her used and have no idea when she was last serviced. I changed the plugs, engine oil, gas filter and oil filter. Still have the same problems.

    I live East of Dayton in Beavercreek, Ohio.

    Can anyone recommend a good shop for service and adjustment?


  2. Buy the manual on that motor. It will pay for itself many times over whether you do the work yourself or to check out if who you're paying to do the work knows what he's doing!!
