Have undertaken a little project in restoring a previously unloved vintage tohatsu unsure of model or year guessing 70's is really hard to get any help or information on it.

Hi, best to start a new thread and ask for advice with a few pictures of the outboard, and I am sure someone will have the info you are after

Oh Welcome by the way

BUMP....

dragged this anchor out the shed again.... Compression tested, and am getting good compression. Got a drill on the flywheel and am getting no spark whatsoever (plug is fine - my seagull makes it give off a lovely bright spark).

I took the flywheel off, the magnets seem pretty strong, all wires intact, and everything underneath was cleaned up with scotchbrite and put back together... still the same. I previously swapped the CDU, and it made no difference.

I am getting perfect continuity down the HT lead.

WTF do i do next?

I have tried disconnecting the stop button, no joy there either!

I'm sure I did a continuity test on the primary coil previously and it seemed fine!

No, check the plug end of the HT to earth, with no plug attached. Should be no continuity (infinite ohms)

Then check the steel core of the coil to earth somewhere else on the motor-should be 0 ohms.
