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.

    • Think im gonna try good old grass clippings since they seem to replenish themselves very rapidly
    • My good buddy from back in SD does fantasy and we have another group we are apart of and he ended up tied for 5th overall last tourney. After day 3 he was in 3rd with the possibility to win it. So close to getting that $2500 basspro card
    • After the cold snap, temps on Trout were back down in the high 40s. Back around 53 now, and should keep warming if the forecast holds. Fish have already moved shallow, bedmaking and piscine lovemaking will follow soon for the brown ones. I am hitting Leech tomorrow...will be interesting to see what water temps are in the protected parts of the bays.
    • Here's some useful information: go shallow, and chuck a swim jig with a paddle tail trailer and set the hook til your arms fall off. Better?
    •   If you like to tinker with guns, you can get a surplus Saiga for a couple hundred bucks.  All sorts of accessories available for these, and they can also be converted to 12 gauge if that's your preference.          
    • I was out last night on a local lake and was surprised to see the water temp down to 57.  Caught a couple cookie cutter fish, but not the big ones I was looking for. Fished a lot of weeds in the 6-9ft range, but not a lot going on there. The biggest one was still shallow in some reeds, so not sure if we are still in the spawn/post spawn stage.     Whats everyone else seeing out there for a bite and fishing conditions. Big weekend coming up, Good luck!! 
    • Maxine_Partain, Welcome to the forum.  There seem to be a lot of folks from Canada joining up in the last half a year which is nice. The sad thing is they all seem to make about 3 posts on the same day they joined and then they never come back which is sad. Hopefully you will keep posting.

    • hi and welcome to HSO. I think you mean double hung not double pane. if you have moisture between the panes you have a seal failure. depending on the brand you might be able to just replace the glass. If you have lots of rot you may need to do a complete replacement. Best to have a window person pop by and check out the situation.
