2005 Yammy f115 making a squeeling noise?

7 posts in this topic

I have about 30 hours total on my f115. After coming accross the lake at high speed when i throttle down to a fast idle. My engine will make a squeeling squeaking noise for about a minute or until I shut it down. It is fine at high speed or while idleing during fishing. Any one have any ideas as to how I could fix this problem. The engine runs great it is just real annoying. Something need to be adjusted or oiled?

DR:

There is a drive shaft bushing that needs to be lubricated. Yamaha issued a bulletin on it. It does not hurt anything-just annoying. If you talk to your dealer, he will be able to get you fixed up. You have to drop the lower unit and apply some special grease Yamaha recommends to the bushing-takes care of the problem.

You can spray some lubricant at the noise location without dropping the lower unit. Look under the motor in the area where it hangs on the transom. There is a gap where you can see the problem area/bushings.

Don't sweat the noise, as mentioned it's very common and has been since Yamaha came out with their four-strokes. My buddy had one (200HP) back around 2000-2001 and it did the same thing when new.

I know you have to use Silicone, since it is a rubber bushing. Thanks for the picture. I read more about this last night online. But couldn't find a picture to fully understand. Now I know, thanks!

    • Hey @rl_sd who had the meat on sale? Looks great btw
    • chicks maybe exploring what the beak is for
    •   You can also be a little creative with the leftover meat.  For example: The wife and I will whip up a spanish rice mixed in with the pork and make Enchiladas or heat the pork on the stove top, mix in some BBQ sauce and make quesadillas (the grandkids love them).   There's more to pulled pork than sandwiches.  
    • that is great!!!!   good for you guys!!!!
    • Your right rs_ld,  a full smoker is the way to go, leftovers can always be frozen and re heated..good eats.
    • 195 degrees on these butts. Like they say, if you are going to spend 9 hrs smoking 5# of meat, you just as well spend the same amount of time smoking 45#. The local grocery had these on sale so had a few friends take the offer to throw a roast on for them. Took two off early for slicing  Pulling the rest cost them each a beer though!
    • Very good stuff, kinda tasted like ribs with this recipe,  I'll keep at it til I find the right one!! Good luck moon lake!!
    • It will be interesting to see how the Warriors react in free agency.  Will they be able to keep the team together?  It seems like all these guys value winning above a paycheck so they might be willing to sign deals that will still allow the team flexibility to keep good role players around them.    
    • That's too bad.  The fish were ON FIRE up there.  I went out with my dad and uncle with our tiller walleye boat, and hardly a clue what we were doing, and we crushed them!  Ended up with 118 pounds of packaged salmon fillets.  I think I can honestly say it was the most fun fishing trip I've had in my life.  Here's my biggest of the trip, 25 pounds.    
    •   It's amazing to see a thoroughly talented team like Cleveland just get dissected like a back alley pick up team. I agree--GS will be THE team to beat for several more years if they keep their nucleus. I think we can make them sweat a little bit now, though, so that's pretty exciting for a change!
