Raised 4-stroke on the transom.

Quick question...

The Tohstsu manual makes clear mention of storing or transporting the engine on its side (tiller facing down). However...

Is it also necessary to tip the motor side-down when raised on the transom, and could there be issues if it weren't tilted first or, worse still, raised with the tiller uppermost?

Just trying to gauge potential for issues in use, with informed advice that doesn't feature in the manual.

Thanks in advance,

Brendan.

There should be no problem when the engine is cocked up normally in the tilted position when fixed to the transom to leave the engine swivelled on either side
its normally when the engine is laid flat on the floor that oil leakage can occur .

Many thanks for that.

Just one of those niggling questions that was really bugging me

All the best,

Brendan
