Tohatsu fuel fittings?

Hi

Are tohatsu fuel fittings the same as Yamaha?

I've just bought a 6hp Tohatsu and the fittings look the same as on my Yamaha but the fit is a bit "tight".

Are they the same and I'm imagining things - or are they slightly different?

In a word, no.

Yamaha moulded plastic fuel connecters are excellent. Tohatsu opted for stainless steel with a slip ring disconnect cylindrical fitting which if not lubricated with marine grease will fail. Buy the genuine part. The pattern parts are poor.

Just re-read this. Tohatsu use both types of fuel connectors across 2-stroke and 4-stroke. Assuming your 6hp is 4-stroke, brand new model, it uses engine side connector (male) 394-70260-0 and fuel tank connector (female) 3GR-70250-0. No idea if it's Yamaha compatible?

I second that, purchased one time a none original, it just did not fit, not at all, totally useless.

I quite agree about pattern parts - but if the Yamaha part is the same part as the tohatsu one then all of my fuel cans and lines will be compatible.

Anyway, will order one from ribshop and see what turns up.

If we are talking about the pin & hose "2 prong" connectors all the manufacturers are subtly different. The johnsorude one likly won't fit either of them!

No worries about the tank. Just change the engine end connector. I standardised on the merc connectors and have a short primer hose for the rude one the sib.....
