Customer Question
Cannot get electrical power...

Cannot get electrical power from 115 Tahohsu motor to starter switch.

Mechanic's Assistant: Sometimes things that you think will be really complicated end up being easy to fix. The Marine Mechanic I'm going to connect you with knows all the tricks and shortcuts. Tell me a bit more about what's going on so the Marine Mechanic can help you best.

The voltage regulator was changed end of 2017. Did not try to start engine till this pass week. When I tried to start I did not get power to my gauge that warns me if something is not working as oil injection, fuel injection,etc. and no power to starter switch. Was told starter relay was bad because had power going in to relay and not to the

Mechanic's Assistant: Is there anything else the Marine Mechanic should be aware of?

Ave had power going into starter relay but no power leaving starter relay. Put new starter relay on and still have no control voltage to starter switch.

Good morning, my name is ***** ***** am I speaking with? I do apologize in you not getting a timely response. Yesterday was a holiday and I wasn't working. What is the model number on your Tohatsu 115 outboard as it reads on the ID tag?

Checked all fuzzies and found none bad. Checked wireing and red wire did not ohm out. Put temp wire and got power to switch, but not to gauge where that showers if oil injection and other safety’s are working. Can turn motor over from switch now but can’t get RPM gauge to work.

O​kay I guess i do not understand the problem you are having. Originally you wrote "Cannot get electrical power from 115 Tahohsu motor to starter switch". But you just wrote "Can turn motor over from switch". What exactly is the problem you are having?

I can’t get the lights on the RPM gauge that shows my safeties.
Customer reply replied 18 days ago
Can’t verify that my safeties on engine is working.

Th​at isn't something I can help you with. The only way to test your tachometer is to swap it out with a known good tach and see if it works or not. Good luck.

Boat wont stay running without pumping primer. My classic
My classic fifty 45hp outboard is having a fuel delivery issue that i can not figure out. This has been going on since last season when i brought the boat out one day and could only keep it running by pumping the primer bulb continuously. Since then i have completely taken apart and rebuilt both carburetors and attached fuel pumps, replaced all 4 spark plugs, replaced fuel line from tank to motor, checked the pick up tube for blockage in the tank and i was convinced that i had finally figured out the issue when i noticed a missing seal on the screw on fuel filter, however after placing that on and getting what appears to be a air tight seal i am still having to use the primer bulb to keep this motor from dying. When the motor is running and i am pumping the bulb it is running excellent, the bulb itself feel completely collapsed at almost all times even when pumping. I can see fuel being delivered into the filter as i pump so i am really just running out of ideas of what could be the problem here. … read more

It never stops working while it is moving. … read more
