    Sid,
    Might need an adjustment since those motors set on Maritas shelf for a while. My Tohatsu 9.8 I bought from them last year starts just fine.

    Give me a ring, I tuned mine for cold starts. Like I mentioned in the prior thread, my Tohatsu 9.8 fourstroke could be a bit cold blooded. I can meet with yah today if you'd like. I'll PM you my number in case you forgot. Might even have an extra set of spark plugs from my old motor that she really like......ngk irridiums.

    Mine starts pretty well when you first start it. After it has sat for awhile it is easy to flood, restarts when warm
    first pull pretty normal, manual recommends premium fuel. The soft gas line has me a little concerned
    easy to set gas can on and starve fuel. Throttle position is very important on starting after first initial sign of
    wanting to start I take choke off. But has not been cold yet so time will tell how it will start as fall sets in!

    After trying to start it I would look at the spark pugs and see if there wet or dry. If wet heat them up and do not choke the engine and try again. If dry add a little gas and see what happen.

    Good luck
