Tohatsu 50 Oil Level (Gear Oil) screw... source?

Hi all,
I have a Tohatsu 50 (Black model, but assume same gearbox) on a Thundercat. Had a bit of trouble removing the top ('oil level') screw for the gear oil today so need to replace it.

Can anyone point me in the way of eBay etc. where to get one? There's no local shop to me hence the need to buy online.

Many thanks

-EDIT- I actually also need to get a new trim tab / anode. So again if anyone can tell me where i'd get both of these that would be great.

Tohatsu parts

You can source from Tohatsu supplier. I use Gaelforce Marine in Inverness. They order direct from Tohatsu. Shipping charges are in region of 6 (UK) even for washer, so order everything you need at the same time. I've also used Ribshop who are excellent. Rib - inflatable boat & outboard parts, repair & service centre

To remove drain-plug, strike the head using a blunt-end chisel with a light hammer a couple of times. These drain plugs are easily damaged because people use the wrong tools to tighten. Use a decent flat-head screwdriver that fits the plug slot neatly. You can also use a pair of Draper adjustable grips on the flat-end driver screw driver for extra torque while leaning into it.

Fit new fibre washers on the drain and fill plugs. Part number: 332-60006-0.

Drain and fill plugs are part number: 332-60005-2. Trim tab is part number: 3C8-60217-1

These are parts for Tohatsu MD40-50 2-strokes. Double check with dealer just in case.

Is that with or without VAT?

You might find the bits from an impact driver a better fit - they are usually parallel sided so no taper to help slip out.
