    Default What year is my Tohatsu M40C outboard?

    Can someone please help me with the year of my Tohatsu outboard motor. It is a M40C and the serial number is 361A85747. Any general comments would be appreciated. Are there any problems to look for?

    For servicing, year of manufacture is unimportant. The model/serial is what is critical. If curious, you can contact Tohatsu America at http://www.tohatsu.com/contact.html to see if they have records to determine your exact year. Hint: It's old enough to vote.

    My motor is 361A-805xx, and I've been told, by Nissan Marine USA, that it's a 1988.

    That said, as pvanv has told you, the years doesn't matter. If you compare the parts catalogs from 1992 and 2004, they are identical, for the most part. You may find a few updated parts numbers or drawings, but all the systems are identical. The only real difference that I've found in them is that somewhere along the line Tohatsu changed the type of CD Unit the used.
