Tilt Trim problem

11 posts in this topic

I have a Yam. F150 and recently when I push the button on either the throttle or the button on the engine it won't go down, I just hear a click. It happens intermittently. Bring the engine up always works, so would this just be a problem with the switch? Also, I did notice the tone of the pump seems to resonate a little or trail off when I bring it up and release the button. Would that likely be a pump issue? Hoping to get a little info. before bringing it in next week.

Thanks

Likely the tilt and trim seleniod(sp). Pretty common symptom.

Sounds like it could be 2 things. The clicking and no movement is more than likely the relay and the noise trailing off could be low fluid.

In the full tilt up position, remove the large slotted fill plug and see if the oil is level with the bottom of the hole.

Yup thats what I thought. What do ya fill it with? Hydrolic fluid? What type do ya recomend?

Does the fill plug have a plastic screw-on cap over it? I loosened this cap a while back and did notice some fluid, but didn't remove completely. Is the slotted screw behind the cap? I'm guessing that's what item #23 is above

Actually thats the plug itself, theres no slotted screw on that one. I would top it off with Yamahas trim and tilt fluid. The reason is because it is suggested that you do not mix different types of fluid. Since it is a Yammy and more than likely, never been changed, you can be relativly sure thats whats in there.

Ya mine just has that cap nothing under it. Do ya just fill it until it starts to come out a bit? I would guess so seeing as theres no measure stick or anything.

    •   All good things come to an end sometime. At some point we realized that the cabin that we always wanted just was not going to happen for us. So, for less then just the taxes and cost of up keep on a cabin we have a park model camper where we can have family and grand kids come up and go fishing any weekend we want. Plus lots to do around the Brainerd area if you don't want to sit in the camper on a rainy day. Last weekend we ran up to Walker to Reeds and pick a gal of Blue Berries on the way.
    • We had our permy site for 14 years. It was a blast the first 10. Neighbors changed, other things changed. We got tired of it and finally had enough. It was getting so with the yearly fee we felt we needed to be out there every weekend.   I still fish the lake in the fall but don't miss it. Now we can go to other places to do something different. With that said I'd do it all over again.    
    •   Well after inspecting, I'm really starting to lean that the blade mounts are bent. I can't find any pictures or anything......so I'm not sure. If these just take a normal shaver blade.....then they gotta be bent.....Anyone have any insite?
    • On June 30 I sent the dnr an email this is their response, "Hello Rob,
      The hunting regs will be out the last week in July"
    • I agree about the lodge. After gear and any snow it can become a heavy pull. The lodge fit in my 1500 chevy silverado (6.5 ft box) as long a you put the flat end of the tub to the front and when closing the tailgate you had to pick up the end of the sled just a little for the gate to close. 
    • When the heck do they issue them? Seems to be getting late. I'd like to know what kind of slaughterhouse Zone 1 will be, or if they are going to play it smart and continue being a bit conservative 
    • Definitely plan on doing some pulling by hand ealry ice so I'm thinking the cabin it is then. Thanks for the tips and info on the otters and equipment it's been a very big help!
    • Yep, I've contacted 4 or 5 campgrounds in the last couple of days. One has gotten back to me, the rest have not yet.   We will be up that way over the Labor Day holiday so we can check out a few campgrounds while we are there. We actually checked out 2 or 3 while we were up there last year at that time.   I'm not too sure if we are ready to take the plunge yet or not but we are close.
    •   If you are start talking to the owners of the campgrounds now about letting you know when there may be an opening. Ours fills up during the summer but at the end of the season the owners will start hearing about those that will be moving out at the end of the year. Lot's of relatives will tell their families as soon as they hear someone is moving out. Good Luck.
