" Hi Lads,
Have purchased a Tomos 4HP outboard motor. Unit was made in Yugoslavia
Details model T4S Engine No 316009 made in 89.
Afraid the book I have does not give any information on how to set the points just gives the gap as 0.35-0.45mm and ignition advance as 1.5+0.1mm BTDC can anybody help with the set up procedure.
Also Carb only has one screw any ideas on how to set it correctly.

Glad to see I'm not the only person that has purchased a Tomos? (motor) would you know how I can go about finding parts for a Tomos Traveler 18hp.I need the little wheel on the crankshaft that goes up and turns the flywheel the teeth on mine is worn down.

09-12-2003, 06:36 PM
"In the UK we only have one dealer who has parts
Do not know who he is yet but if you contact
[email protected] ("") he maybe able to supply the part.
Know he will supply a manual if required.
Seems info is difficult to obtain on this outboard.

All the best,

I believe the main importers for the Tomos engines were

SeaPage International
Tel: 01929 551 406

I have a Tomos T10 10HP outboard anyone know where I can get hold of a manual as the water cooling is not working?

I purchased some parts three years ago so the information may be out of date good luck!

All the best

" Aled,
Yes, you are correct its still the main dealer.
For a price he will also supply a blown up parts list which should help to locate the problem.

"If anyone knows where to get parts for a Tomos motor could they E-Mail me at [email protected] ("") , or if they would have the part, it is a little plastic piece inside the throttle handle that makes the engine go."

"Hi, got a aisla craig , tomos 4hp outboard, starts fine and revs fine but when i put it in the water the prop doesnt turn any faster no matter how high i rev, as if something is slipping, any ideas?, I can even stop the prop turning with my foot and rev the engine?"

"Your problem might be that the small security rod is broken, or broken and jammed in. It is found bellow, at the prop. You have to take down the black cover (at the end of the propeller), and there has to be a small approx. 3 mm. thick metal rod that is actually connecting the prop and the drive. If that`s missing or is broken, there is no connection between the prop and the engine and the prop turns only because of friction...

I hope I helped!"

I have a 4 HP Tomos Travler (model T4S) that run fine for about 15 min's then stops. Wait for 15 min's and it starts and runs again for 10 min's then stops again. Have replaced all ignition parts and fuel related items to no avail.
Starting to think it's vapor lock.
Anyone experienced the same symptoms?

Tomos 4 HP (T4S) FIXED!!!!!

I recently received a email from a fellow from Denmark telling me to check the sparkplug cap on my Tomos 4 HP outboard.
He had the same outboard and His sparkplug cap shorted the high voltage after running for 10 min's then would run again after cooling down.

I replaced my sparkplug cap (even though it looked perfect) and now the Tomos runs great!

Folks in Denmark and this forum rocks.

"I have a new out of the box 5HP Tomos T5S(literally, I found it sitting unused in the original box with packaging). It ran great for 45 minutes and stalled, and I haven't be able to getting running since. While I don't profess to be an outboard mechanic, I've tried all the standard fixes, disassembled carb and cleaned, disassembled fuel pump and cleaned, tried different fuel tank(know to be good), changed spark plug, checked coils with meter (seem good). It will only idle rough, and stalls when I give it gas. Plug keeps fouling (it's getting gas). So I deduce it's the CDI and since I can't get one of those, I give up, it's up for sale as-is or parts. This was supposed to be my good motor while I repair my MERC. Anyway I gave $300.00 for it, so any reasonable price, $200 obo, it's yours. I live in SW Michigan, prefer pickup.

"Hello everyone, I've found something which may be useful to us all.

After a search on (of all places) Wikipedia, I've found a website, based in Croatia who retail parts for Tomos motorcycles and outboards.

Infortunatley I can netiher read or speak the lingo, but from the sizw of their catalogue, and the pictures on the site, I'd say they can get most if not all parts for these engines.

Their site is at http://www.tomos-autousluga.hr/index.php?menu=cjenik&lang=cro&cid=4 ("]http://www.tomos-autousluga.hr[/url]

...and the model menu for the outboard catalogue is at [url=")

...and the route to it is via the link marked "cjenik" which can be found sixth from left below the sites main ad banner, and then via the button marked "VANBRODSKI MOTORI TOMOS" - the keyword here being "Vanbrodski".

I haven't explored the site in any greater depth yet, so I don't know if they have an on-line shop, but still, at least the spares are available."

"Also, for anyone with a 9.9 / 18, there id a reciol starter mechanism, complete with what looks like a good starter dog on ebay at the moment.

08-23-2009, 04:15 AM
"Hi David,

Unfortunaly the shop does not speak english or german. I have found out the site a few years ago.
After 7 emails i have received 1 reply in very bad english with the comment; ONLY PICK-UP AT OUR STORE, WE CAN'T SEND THE ITEMS. So, if you want to plan a holliday to Croatia you can get the parts.

I just recieved a Tomos 4hp, air cooled and no gears. My problem is when i removed the small panel with the kill switch on suddenly i found two white wires were hanging loose and i dont know where they should be atached. One comes from the back of the kill switch and the other comes out of a plastic wiring connector under the carb, both wires are white and i do seem to remember that one may have been connected to the small screw on the inside of this plate as an earth. Can anyone help me out with photos so that i can get this thing working again? Also once started my motor seems to run ok but idle slos and it will stall, if i squeeze the priming bulb more then fuel leaks our from the round brass rod/plug at the rear of the carb so i am assuming this is abnormal?
Please help.


10-14-2011, 11:36 AM
Hi lads can anybody tell me if the tomos4.0 is water cooled,in the main shaft is the drive shaft,the gear change,and a pipe that fits at the top of the engine and goes nowhere at the bottom. there is an iode on the out side directly underneath.the reason why i ask is after 4 min of engine running the steering goes realy tight,thanks

Dear all I am a very new member in fact just about an hour old lol! My engine to my lovely Dawncraft Cruiser - Honda 15 HP was stolen late last year (sadly the insurance was out by a day)and I have recently replaced it was as you guessed a Tomos. I am relatively inexperienced as a lone woman boater but alas however fantastic a Tomos engine appears to be finding a fuel fitting is near nigh impossible- so perhaps I should of bought a Johnson or Mercury ??? Anyway I require a fuel fitting for my 9.9 engine so any help or advice of where to go this finf this obscure fitting will be greatly received or some advice or assistance to a similar fitting - anything as I want to get my little boat out and about now its spring. Thankyou Birman [email protected]

04-24-2014, 06:23 PM
I had the same problem with an 18 Hp Tomos. I took the oridginal one off. I installed a length of fuel line from the motor connection to outside the motor through the hole where the original fitting was mounted. I then put a mercury end on the other hose end. I was able to hook my mercury gas tank to either my 4.5 mercury or my 18 Hp Tomos from then on.
