Help Tip: If you have a question that has not been answered to your satisfaction in the archives, it is always best to start a new thread of your own. By starting your own thread, you will receive the maximum number of views by forum members.

Below are some additional forum policies in hopes of all iboats members will follow, Thank you.

1. Please do not reply to old threads or hijack existing threads. Old threads of a technical nature are like a library book, Please do not write in them.

2. Old threads should be considered archives and used for reference only. Please do not reply to them.

3. Do not take over someone elseís thread (aka hijack) with your own question, even if it is similar. If you have a question that has not been covered to your satisfaction in the archives, it is always best to start a new thread of your own.

4. If you have a question for the original poster (OP) and the thread is over 30 days old, send the OP a PM, he may not even visit the forums any longer, or may not notice your question in the old thread.

5. By starting your own thread, you will receive the maximum number of views by forum helpers that may not even notice your question when itís posted at the end of someone elseís thread. And those answers will be specific to your particular issue.

6. Please do not post to threads that have been inactive for more than 3 months unless you are the original poster. We have very active forums and any thread that remains inactive for that long should be considered "dead". It is especially confusing when there is an entirely new question posted to an old thread.

7. Posting at the end of any thread is considered to be hijacking the original posters thread which in turn subjects the thread to be closed if it continues to happen thus not making it fair to the original poster in the future had for some reason he/she needed to return for additional information or provide an update of the problem solved which is always welcomed within a reasonable amount of time frame.

8. Please note that you should see a red banner pop up near the bottom of each inactive thread asking you not to reply to old threads. The Red banner will read: Please note this thread has been inactive for 90 days. For the best results, please start a new thread.

Thank you all in advance for doing your part in helping iboats run a smooth ship.

  • Tomos - Koper 4 Hp Year ?


    I have a Tomos - Koper Traveler 4 HP model# T4S Serial# 393933. Any idea on what year this is and is there a web site out there that talks about these motors?

    I found one reference on the web to that model, and the date mentioned was 1989. Apparently, it's made in Yugoslavia. A google search for Tomos Traveler Outboard will find the site.

    The discussion thread was from 2004, and mentions a UK source for information and parts...but just a phone number.

    I could not find any US supplier.

    Apparently you have a rarity here in the US, but they appear to be fairly common in the UK.

    Sure...go ahead and laugh at my old aluminum boat. It's paid for!

      Tomos outboards are pretty common here in Holland. They're primitive but easy to operate and fix when something's wrong. Simple motors.

      Tomos used to (and still does) make scooters and mopeds. Before that, they made outboards. But not anymore. Parts aren't easy to find, even in Holland.

        It was imported into the U.S. for a few months back in the late 80's by N.I.E.C. who decided they were more trouble than they were worth. There is no parts source in the U.S. As NIEC only brought in a few thousand dollars worth of parts.
        My answers are like Zen...It may not be the answer you want, but it is generally the answer you need.

        The 3 Rules:

        1) Look in your service manual first...Then ask me if it is correct.
        2) Understand that your desire to repair your engine does not mean that you have the ability to do so.
        3) If you are confused, take your engine into a dealer..Then let them be confused...At least, in theory, they sent someone to outboard 101.

            The small tube is for the exhaust cooling system which is via water taken in through the leg. As such, dont run this motor out of the water! This tube seems to get clogged with grit and sand fairly routinely so its useful to clean it out every so often.
