We call them a mash hammer. Or a "thud".

Hi All,
My Tohatsu 9.8 4st is finish and ready to be installed.
After I reshape the cowl, it is good fit.
I am going to write the manual for fitting Tohatsu 9.8 4 st to Noelex 25 without rudder extension on 2018 model.

Then I post it to people as a reference to help and to simplify this procedure.

Only one question I have and it is the propeller.
What type of propeller people use on this motor?
Regards Frank

Marg is correctly. 4 blades at 8.75 diameter and 5" pitch.
A fantastic motor and propeller combination.
Frank you need to match the number of splines too.

Adrian has a 4 blade prop on his Tohatsu 9.8 4st, it looks like a high thrust prop. We're transferring it from his old Noelex to his new one at the moment; I'm getting hands on experience with the motor mount in these boats...

Hi Marg and All
And thanks to your information. My motor come with mark 8.5 - 3 blades 8.9 x 8.3. I will try it and possibly get high trust if it’s not suitable.
Regards Frank

Hi All,
Today I finally put the Tohatsu 9.8 4 st in my Noelex.
To lift the motor and drop it in took only 15 min, but before that 5 weeks to figure out what to cut and reset.
To do it again would take me one day.
So motor is in and it is perfect.
I have clearance under rudder stock and I rest the linkages for locking the mounting board. I am very happy and fitting Tohatsu 4 st in Noelex without extension is reality.
I have standard prop, and I may modify it later if necessary for better reverse.
Also my dealer in Bairnsdale told me not to buy Tohatsu high trust prop, if I need it, buy Solarex after market, much cheaper.
They also have Tohatsu 9.8 4st with remotes in the shop for good price if somebody is interested.
So if everything goes well we will be on the water on Cup Day.
If anybody needs advice on fitting Tohatsu, send me email.
Regards Frank

Hi All,
I have considered modification of the propeller by drilling the holes for exhaust escape.

I don’t have the specification and Wanton promise to send it to me.

But as far as today I don’t have it.

Maybe he got confused about the drilling and sent it to EHarmony.
So I am still waiting.

Regards Frank

My apologies Frank. I have been caught up in life's business. I will attend to your needs tomorrow.

Hi All,
I did not like Tohatsu 9.8 4 st tiller to stick out and make it difficult getting in and out of the boat.
So I took the motor out of the boat again for more modifications.
I removed the tiller and consider two options.
One to cut and shorten tiller by 100 mm and weld it, or shift it to other side. I did not like any of those options.
So next morning I decided to make small leaver and linkage to carby.
It is straight forward, I drill the hole next to choke and tomorrow I start on the leaver with red ball on the top.
After that I would like to separate output wire of the charging coil and take it through to my regulator already on the boat.
It is slow process, but in bad weather is OK.
Regards Frank

Hi All,

Thanks for the advice, I know I blow my warranty by modifying the outboard to suit my needs.
I always service my outboards myself, so it disqualified me anyway.
I have new throttle lever nearly finish, it fits next to gear shift.
There is not much room and 6mm ss rod with red ball on top fits neatly.
Hopefully I finish it tomorrow and then test it on the stand.
I am taking photos to put it on the post later on, only the final design probably mark 5.
Regards Frank
