I would really like to get this motor set up properly so to update this thread here's whats happened so far .
I called extreme marine to try and get a manual and some info . They told me to call tohatsu uk which i did . They just informed me that the motor should have a dealer first service after 10 hrs and they would set it up ok . So off i went for my service , and £60 later I am back to square 1 , i watched the dealer and all they did was rev it up and twiddle with air screws arriving at the same as me 2 3/4 turns out . Oh and £12 for the gearbox oil change .
Did a good run yesterday and it oiled a plug twice , no 2 first time as soon as we set off and no 3 about 45 mins later . After that it ran for 4 hrs no problem at all .
I called tohatsu again for some set up info and got to speak to someone very helpfull, the 2 1/2 turns out is standard on all carbs plus or minus 1/4 turn . There is nothing else to set .
THe mistake i made was running it in on 25-1 as tohatsu say , it causes oil to get trapped somewhere in the lower crank seal , and other than striping the motor it will take a good few hrs of running to clean it out . Often a bit of rough water or tilting the motor will release some oil and then a plug oils up . Which would go with yesterday when the second plug oiled after some lumpy water around a headland .
They told me they run them in on 50-1 and just don't use them hard for a
Easyrider iam interested to know how you ended up with very different carb settings , we seem to be getting some opposing info .
Still waiting for the manual
