Squeal noise on Yama F150 4stroke?

6 posts in this topic

Have a 2006 F150yamaha, after running it for awhile it gets a slight squeal at lower speeds, from 0 throttle to about 2000rpm or so, its kinda the same sound as on the older cars when the alternator belt wasnt tight enough, i looked under the hood but theres no place i could see where it might come from, it has only one cogged belt.

Could the noise be comming from the "idler" pulley? it dont appear that theres any way to lube it? if i remember right my old 80yamaha 4 stroke did it a few times also, any ideas or help would be great!! thank you

my 115 does this from time to time, its from a small bushing that they say just needs a shot of lube. its worked for me for some time now.

here is a pic of the location (screw driver pointing to it) of the shaft/bushing. I snagged the pic from another site.

minneman, Thanks for the info, next time in the other garage i will see if i can locate something like this, im not sure how close in relationship the 115 is to the 150 but hopefully close enough! unless ofcourse someone has another idea?? thanks again!

I would try minneman's recommendation first to try and isolate the noise.

Yep, that's pretty common with Yamaha 4-strokes and it sounds exactly as you described....like a squealing fan belt. The bushing is the culprit.

Thanks for the help guys! i think i located the shaft, i took cover off and put a mark on the part i thought it was and turned the motor slightly by hand and the mark moved with it, so i took the oil can and put a shot where the shaft goes down into the bushing....we will try it out this comming weekend at leech lake! thanks again!

    • LOL Then YOU my friend are the one who jumped to conclusions in your last post because that was a direct quote from the post you were replying to. You did say it was NOT a joke, right?
    • Finally saw a few divers myself today.  In town.    Yah, I don't think it would make much of a difference if they let us just keep going.  
    • Whoooaaa...slow down big fella. Of course I do not think one party is any more "evil" than the other.  I don't think ANY of them are evil, they just have, more or less, different basic principles. You my friend,  have some serious attitude problems and seem to be very prone to jumping to conclusions and letting your paranoid tendency's run away with you. I have many friends on both sides of the two MAJOR parties and have worked with a couple of genuine Libertarians too. I can only recall a couple individuals I would consider might be "evil" in your sense of the word. Shucks,   I don't even think YOU are evil.   Ha Ha HA!
    • Salami ready to eat. 1/2 goose.....1/2 beef. Much firmer than using pork.Love this seasoning. Garlic, smoke and peppercorns. I always add extra garlic to it. Lately I have gone to using powdered smoke. 1 tsp. per pound of meat. Gives me a consistent flavor every time. No guessing how much smoke to have. Also allows to use the oven inside instead of out in the cold.   Summer sausage in the oven now while I watch football.  
    • --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------             You might want to read what was actually typed:     Do you really believe your side is good and the other is evil? If you do, that's the part that is a big joke.
    • below is a link for doing pork loin jerky. you can use any whole meat for this.       click here :)
    • Nice conspiracy theory.  So how come after they tested additional thousands of deer they didn't find any more, if they were looking for an excuse?      What were you expecting as far as policing the borders?  How many folks would be necessary, and how on earth would they do it?   But whatever.  You sound just like those guys back in the day over by Madison Wisconsin that had big money in their deer hunting land and raising trophy bucks.  No way were they going to kill a bunch of their deer.    And look at it now.  30 percent infection levels.     It's like AIS.   They are doing what they can within the limits of budget, manpower, and politics.     Look at the map of cwd infested counties in Wisconsin... I posted it up above.   Do you want Minnesota to look like that?  Do you want to eat deer with CWD?
