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.

    • Oh, just like the Rompers you are wearing around town then.
    • Made some frozen Arby's fries tonight and wow they were great. I would be sold just on the fries alone in this thing.   11mins cooked frozen, better and quicker than the drive thru lol
    • Actually the guy at ace was pretty close. These little guys are for framing steel studs before sheetrocking,  but yes they also could be for sheet metal work even though they are black . But your right hawg sharp and go in fast. 
    • What  a sweet find !!   Even better that you had a camera handy !!
    • Great trade and as of last year I know I wasn't ready to part with Lavine and his potential but that all changed when he went down with the injury.  I hope Lavine becomes a stud for Chicago in a few years but our time to win is now with this addition!!  Great move giving up hope for a top 15 player in the league that plays D is brilliant with the young studs we still have on roster.  Now all we need to do is add another player or 2 in free agency to strengthen our bench and we will be looking good.  Excited for the free agency to start!!! Playoffs here we come!!!!!! GO WOLVES!!!!!!!!!!!
    • http://minnesota.cbslocal.com/2017/06/22/mall-of-america-slips/   Classic case of doctors juicing up a medical claim with a series of failed therapies, creating a life long patient and a corporation with deep pockets to bill for those services.  Think not?  Dont be so naive.  Nobody wanted to fix her, they just wanted to keep billing, sad deal that happens all too often.          
    • That Drouin contract at 5.5 is kind of bad for us right now. Nino is far more proven than him and Granlund has had the beast season out of the 3 of them. Hard to see anything under 5 for each of them. 
    • Looks like the Wild moved Schroeder for....another Schroeder.  Maybe the new guy will be more consistent.   I see Evander Kane is on the trade market.  On the expensive side, but if the Wild decide to move Scandella instead of Dumba, that would free up more money.  A guy capable of scoring 30+ goals with some size would be sweet.     I am thinking Granlund and Nino each sign for in between 4-5$ mil each.  Hopefully less and hopefully Pominville will restructure a little.  Doesn't leave a ton of cap space for free agents or other guys.     Lots of moving parts in Chicago.  They seem to be moving a lot of parts around to try to work with their cap situation.  
    • I think you, or the person at Ace, meant "Sheet metal". That's what they're used for....sheet metal and HVAC work. They have a self-tapping thread. Look on your furnace where the sheet-metal ducting is fastened...bingo!   Also called "sheet metal screws".  Hope they work for ya!
