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.

    • Good season Wild, onto next year. Should be some changes but I don't expect us to do anything crazy. Need to sign Granlund and Nino and that will use up a lot of our cap space. Can't afford Hanzel and possibly Haula and Vegas will be taking a player off our hands. I'm more interested to see who can sustain or step up their scoring next year or if anyone regresses. Granlund, Coyle, Nino, Zucker, Dumba, Spurgeon and Brodin all had career years, those are good problems to have. They showed us a lot but I think they still have room to grow and that is what we need. We have a nice cast of vets but they are likely too old to lead us to a cup, they would be in more supporting rolls. Hopefully our now seasoned young core and continue to build on their impressive seasons. Always disappointing to lose, even worse when you can't score against your old coach but I like the our team and hopefully we can keep getting better.
    • I'm not the most techy 40yr old out there, so I will try to explain what I'm looking to do and hopefully someone can point me in the direction I need to go. I have a cabin in the Chippawa National Forrest, no phone at the cabin and our cell phones dont work at the cabin either. My teenage son wants to take the wheeler and go riding alone. I worry he's going to get lost or if the wheeler breaks down he can't call my cell for help. When we drive my truck around; the gps in it works all the time.  I know I can put a GPS app on my sons phone so he can track his route in reverse to get back to the cabin. But what if he breaks down?  Does anyone know if there is a gps app that I could "pair" up me and my son's phone so I can see where he is at? kill 2 birds with one stone per say, he can use it to navigate himself on the wheeler and I can see where he's at incase I need to rescue him.  Thanks for the help.
    • Hit the Red River over the weekend for the 2nd time this spring. First outing wasn't great with a handful of smaller cats all under 10lbs. This weekend was a different story as we ended up with 15 cats Friday night. 5 over 10lbs, 2 of which were high teens fish. All caught on cut river bait.  Cats were on the shallow side of the river. Water was high and flowing pretty good. All fish were caught and released. Great night of fishin w no bugs to bother us and very nice weather! Gonna give it another whirl soon in a boat this time. Have a look!!
    • I've never tried my booya poppin pad crashers Yet but are they really bad or just not as good? Just wondering.
    • Well, I got the bow out today and it took about a dozen shots to get it sighted in then I shot this group at 30 yards.    I am impressed with this CB. The trigger is really thing that I'm not impressed with but I have nothing to compare it to. It seems like there is 40 acres of creep before it releases.
    • Ya I don't know do I dare say I almost like it better than deer hunting... Cant sit with him tonight but came up with a game plan wouldn't be surprised if he sticks one tonight  
    • I am still hunting yet Moose. I go to Nebraska in a few weeks. I am archery in mn. starting to see more active birds. Going to wait and shoot a tom. Nice having 4 birds already on the team. How does a guy post pictures right from your cell phone to here so I can post Dillons info on his tom.
    • Went out today in the metro areas without any luck. Didn't even see any ramps in the usual spots, and I thought they were earlier than the morels.
