Have new tohatsu outboard that runs fine but wont rev out over 4500 rpm


I just looked at 7 different sites and they are saying Max RPM is between 4,500 - 5,050... How accurate is your Gauge?

Prop Pitch will greatly effect MAX RPM.

Water in engine? please help!


Pls make the following checks with the engine off and cold,
1)Take the radiator cap off.
2) Make sure your hands are clean and dry.
3)Put your index finger into the radiator cap hole for 1 second.
4)Remove your finger and check it for oil.
5)If you get oil on your finger your cylinder head gasket has blown .
6) You must then drain the engine of its oil and water mixture and replace the cylinder head gasket,dont drive the vehicle for it's just gonna make the repairs more expensive for you.

I have a 2004 f350 diesel. blows white smoke wail going down the road. so got back home and parked it. so now it starts and runs for a few then dies.Every time start white smoke come out and the engine run...


The cylinder head gasket has most likely failed, or the block or head have cracked or corroded to allow coolant into the combustion chambers. Commonly the fault is caused by such things as failing to use the correct coolant mix (using water only causes corrosion), or overheating due to coolant leak, or a failed water pump.

It's a major repair, and the exact cause won't be known until the engine is stripped down.

Free download for repair manual for an Evinrude 1987 40HP outboard motor


My outboard motor is old and used.When I went to run it for the first time everything worked except when I went to put it in forward gear the boat went slowly but when I gave it more gas the engine just reved up but the boat wasn't going any faster.The motor is 40hp gale model.I think because it is bought used the prop is not the right one and it seems like it's slipping as I go faster.
I would appreciate any feedback on this problem.

Thax, Don
