Tohatsu serial number found!
After emailing tohatsu uk to ask when motor was supplied new. 2008 build date, the confirmed it was supplied new, end of June 2010 by boat builder company, wolf....., I also asked if there was a metal serial number in addition to adhesive label. I could not find one. They said the core plug stamped metal ones pressed into the block sometimes fall out during transport.. Tonight I found it next to the remote control connections in the bottom of the lower engine cover.... Even the numbers are the same, lol....
