PROBLEM WITH 70HP YAMAHA TILLER

5 posts in this topic

Hey people! I have a problem with the bottom cylinder on my outboard. When the motor is warm it acts as if a plug has fouled out but only on the bottom cylinder. The top two cylinders run great. When you check the plug on the bottom cylinder there is no evidence of carbon builup. It is just wet and oily. I am thinking it is an electrical problem. Any ideas of what you think the problem is? Any suggestions are greatly appreciated.

DLR, They say Yamaha are like Mercs. Well,my
Merc had one cylinder that wasn't working.Turned out to be the "spark-box" that splits the spark into three ways. I'm no boat motor expert,but the problem sounds similar??

Thanks, TUMBLEWEED! I think it may be either the ignition coil for the bottom cylinder or the Power Pack. I hope its the coil because of cost. Coil=$57.00 Power Pack=$281.00.

TO DLR, A COUPLE YEARS AGO MY FRIEND HAD A FIFTY YAMAHA WITH ALMOST THE SAME PROBLEM, WE TOOK IT TO MARINE DEALER IN WALKER, IT WAS DIRT IN THERMOSTAT, IT RAN GOOD UNTIL IT GOT WARMEDUP AND STARTED RUNNING RUFF. IT ALSO WAS THE BOTTOM CYLINDER ON THE FIFTY. AFTER THEY FLUSHED OUT THE DIRT IT RAN FINE. SO I HOPE THIS MIGHT HELP YOU.

WALLEYE: Thanks, I will have that checked out also. I am taking it in for a compression check tonight in case a cylinder is scored and before I start replacing electronic parts.

    • Inevitably at least twice each season I will leave the house, drive 45 minutes and walk some of my favorite grouse spots for hours and hours, seeing nothing.  Admitting defeat on that day, I will drive 45 minutes back home, only to find a covey of birds in the driveway...

    • Hey featherslayer, you gonna register that nice bird of yours pretty soon?
    • cool find!  sure looks like a Swainson's.  
    • Great info.   Thanks Steve!   Jim
    • Came across this hawk on Earth Day at the edge of town. I've been told dark morph Red-tail, dark morph Swainson's and dark morph Broa- winged. Anyway, it's a dark morph some kind of hawk.
    • Yes it was.  I really needed one more layer today.  Lots of jakes and hens seen by us this morning.  Still looking for the toms.  Hope you had more luck.
    • There are a lot of apps available for that. Search your app store for "phone tracking" or something similar. Many give you the ability to share your positions so you both can see each other live. You might even have an app already on your phone. For example, I have Lookout Security installed on my phone and it includes the ability to find the location of my phone from another phone or PC. 
    • Watch your City Ordinances.  Some city's require a back-flow preventor, and it can be VERY expensive. I have both the battery backup, and the water driven sump pumps in my pit--all at different elevations, and feel very confident. When the water comes up, and the power goes out, the battery backup starts working.  After that the water driven sump pump will kick in.  The water driven pump will keep pumping until the power is restored and the main pump returns everything to normal. There is always water pressure in a power outage (from the tower).  Cities keep the tower full for fire protection
