Outboard Service Sheffield

Can anyone recommend a decent service shop "around" Sheffield please. Have a 50Hp Tohatsu 2 stroke that has a rough idle, may be missing, runs fine at WOT.

I dont really have time to diagnose myself unless its an easy fix.

Cheers in advance

Tom

There is a guy in Todwick, we call him "Eric the engine" he has had donkeys years of experience with 2 strokes, and has forgot more than most people know. He really knows his stuff. If you want to give him a call drop me a pm. for his number.

I've been using M J Marine for a few years now and have been very happy with them.
60 miles from Sheffield but an easy enough drive.

Yorkshire, Humberside and Lincolnshires premier outboard dealer with 21 years experience. Sales service spare parts and repairs to most makes of outboard motor.

Mark does mobile work too so I'd always give him a call before turning up.

+1 for Mark ,,,, great guy and very knowledgeable.

We used to use Eric for the local dive club boats ,,, amazed he is still at it. Probably still ace at old basic 2 strokes 😉

Thanks for the comments. Changes the coils today to no avail, and with a pending trip coming up i'll chase the people noted. It's a 2006 Tohatsu M50D2 so not new, but not all that basic either. Thanks
