  • Tohatsu 40hp and 50hp differences?

    Does anyone know the difference between 40hp and 50hp Tohatsu? Can you convert the 40hp to 50hp?

    Yes, but it's not cost effective.

    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.

      Thanks for that. Not really what I wan't to hear. Might use mine till warrenty is done then upgrade to 50hp. Can you really feel the difference between the 2? I know a 20hp and 25hp Merc performs pretty much the same. Certainly don't feel like 5hp difference between the 2.

        Little bit more hole shot. Little bit more top end.

            My personal experience was that the Hottie 40 seemed to me to be a "strong" 40. It is a fantastic motor- the cost of upgrading it to a 50 will not likely yield enough of a difference to justify the cost. I now own a 50.

              Yeah it's probably quick enough as it is. I'm just getting carried away.
