  • 2000 Tohatsu 40D Idle adjustment

    My 2000 40D needs the idle to be a little higher.....It sputters until I give it a little throttle.

    What is the proper procedure to raise up the idle? I'm pretty sure its in the linkage but am scared to mess with it because of the 3 carbs.....Thanks in advance for any help.......Warren

    You would use the idle adjustment screw and raise the RPM....
    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.
