Old Outboard Issue - Spark


Recommended Posts

i recently picked up a old tohatsu motor from double pluggers. firstly if anybody could tell me the horsepower of the year that would be greatly appreciated. the serial number is 338-05105

secondly i wish to get the motor running, i have given it a bit of a service looking at the water pump, carby, fuel line and filter etc. but i can't get it to start. my suspicion is that there is no spark as i have tested and i don't think there is any spark. (not a expert) the electrical system is a bit dodgey in the way of the HT leads. in addition i was told that it may need new points. are these points located under the flywheel? and should they be done?

thanks guys


Ps i may put up some pictures of the engine later
