I might treat my auxiliary to a service, it’s only done about 2 hrs since new so not really run in. 
what do i need to do for first service? I know about impeller and oil is there anything else?

New plug, replace gear oil. 
 

If it’s 4S maybe new oil and filter. Not much to do if of thought? Maybe oil/grease all moving parts

It’s a four stroke, will it only have one plug or a bunch of them?

I have got all the paperwork somewhere for it, I think it may be on the boat. Easier if you look for me thanks🤣

Oil, oil filter, fuel filter, gearbox oil change, clean the plug(s), grease where necessary, finally check all adjustments to make sure it runs ok.

With just 2hrs running I would not bother with the impeller if it is pumping ok.

It would probably be even easier for you if he quickly popped down from Norfolk and did it for you. Geoff

Not a bad idea, he could pick the parts up on the way as well

They've been looking at it for 18 months already... still got the roadworks in full swing!

Yeah but I thought Steve could join the gang and give them a hurry up. You know, whilst he’s down this way.

Looks like one plug. I have a spare in the folder that came with it as well. But I forgot to get the numbers so I’ll have to go back tomorrow to look. 
I pored 10 litres of old petrol from the tank  in her car as well, she went mad, thinking I’m trying to stitch her up.
