HELP- No tilt or trim

2 posts in this topic

OK, so yesterday morning I looked out to see my motor which is a 2004 250 HPDI Yamaha in the full up position which is not where I left it. So, this had happened one other time about 3 months ago. Then the problem just went away. This time it will not do anything. When I activate the up or down switch, the relay just clicks. Nothing to the trim motor. I have check voltages and everything looks like it should have power to the motor. I believe the trim motor is shot. Any other thoughts?

Also, how do I remove the trim motor. It has 3 allen head bolts, one which is conveniently buried. I tried with no luck to drop it out of the frame. I removed the 4 bolts from each side, drained as much fluid as I could and I still could not get it to come out the motor frame. It appears that I cannot get it to go up high enough, due either to the frame rubbing or the center piston fighting me.

Well, I double checked the electrical stuff again. Just decided to pull the motor. It is definitely bad. The shaft hardly moves. I guess now the hunt is on for a new motor before the weekend. Don't want to lose too much time on the water.

    • I think they are a valiant and hard working people who suffered under Communist  soviet rule for many years.  I like their sausage also.
    • He will probably sue most of us as well........
    • So what do you think about the poles?
    • "You can't let the people in this country that are the poor people, the people without the money and resources go without healthcare," Trump told the MSNBC program. "I just can't even imagine. You're sick and you can't even go to a doctor. I say one thing, can you not let 25 percent of the people of the country because they have no money go without something?"
        This sure sounds like some form of government sponsored healthcare to me..
    • Your preferred solution would be "nothing", right?   So, sounds like your solution is in the running...   That would be to repeal the whole kit and caboodle and let the people, the employers, the insurance companies, the drug companies and the medical providers duke it out.   I have no information as to what Trump's intentions are beyond repealing ACA.  I'm sure you could find out with a few minutes googling  
    • Nah, you posted a one work reply.  And folks were reefing on d2e over it.  Just noting it was PB that made the original mistake.  
    • .....and I'm not even mad at my bro.
    • The walleye have been MIA on the Iowa River around Coralville this fall. It is not the high water, I don't think--high water spots that have worked great in the past have not produced any walleye for me this year. Not much luck for white bass and wiper, either.   What I have gotten in to the last couple weeks is a nice smallmouth and spotted bass bite, of all things. This is in one of my spots that seldom produced black bass in the past with water levels where they are now. No huge fish, but lots of smallies and spots up to 15" or so. Also a lot of the 6" black crappies that seem to be everywhere on Lake Macbride and the Iowa River this fall.
    • I was thinking they were after the Smallys and that it must have been a tourney with all the boat traffic.
