Trim at WOT

4 posts in this topic

I have another tilt/trim question. Before when cruising at WOT, I could always trim my motor out as much as I want until it would start breaking loose and then I would trim it back down a bit. This weekend when I was out, it will now only trim out about half as much as I would like and won't trim any more at WOT. If I slow down or stop, I can trim it up all the way just fine. What would cause it to not trim further at WOT like it always has before? I'm only loosing about 2 mph off the top end, so it's not a huge deal. I'm just not sure what's going on and don't want something else to happen. It's a 1990 Johnson 90 hp. Thanks

Check the oil level. Sounds like the motor doesn't have fluid to reach top height under load. A worn pump, or worn rams can cause this. When you push it all the way out at WOT your are practically asking the T&T to "lift" your boat, and the unit might be worn enough not to be able to lift to the max.

Thanks, what is the proper way to check the oil level?

tilt to full up position and remove the fill plug (large straight slotted screw), fluid should be level with bottom of fill hole.

    • Probably  Canadian. Appears some zealous border guards kept the rest pf them out.
    • my bird id book says its a spotted towhee,used to be called a rufus sided towhee.  
    • Never claimed they were rocket scientists, and I did say they are terrible at putting garbage in containers. Words are all spelled right, just don't make much sense--must be from over seas.
    • You are right. But there was a whole lot of head scratching from the rest of us.  Here is a tasty sample. Thought I'd put it out here for ya just so you do not think your side is hoarding all the genius.  
    • Yea, highly doubt the calls were for well wishes and almost assuredly  illegal at the time, but doubt anything will be able to be proved. Number and length of calls along with a "no no" will probably be the only thing coming out of the Senate inquiry. Am sure Flynn and if whomever else will be well versed on a non incriminating reply. Hard to take down any high ranking gubmint official, no matter the party. 
    • I can't wait for the hearings.  Lock those filthy pigs up!  Send em all to gitmo, heard they have plenty of room there. So how did all that russian propaganda end up on the dnc server?  Youve got 50 pages of hard evidence for that i bet.
    • Reddit I believe   https://www.reddit.com/r/politics/comments/5i63d1/40_electoral_college_members_demand_briefing_on/db5or6d/?st=iy9h32qk&sh=3f2619dd   There were plenty of criminal things the Clinton team could have been charged with but when the inmates run the asylum the usual rules don't apply.
    • Hillary and DWS didn't commit any crimes as difficult as that is to believe. Sketchy politics certainly, but what happens within a political party has no legal ramifications. The FBI already cleared Clinton of wrongdoing with regards to the email.   Flynn and other members of Trump's team are likely in violation of the Logan Act.
    • Well, if that happens then let the chips fall but do you think they will be arresting Hillary and DWS at the same time? If so it would be a good start.
