Yamaha 50 horse four stroke

4 posts in this topic

Just wondering if anyone else has had any problems with the tilt and trim on this motor, or maybe knows of a good place to get it checked out. It's a '99 and I can trim the motor up whenever I hit the switch but it won't always go back down. When I hit the down button, it just makes a click but doesn't go down. I have to hit the switch up and down a few times and then it will go back down. Thanks for any help/info.

I have an 98 and when I first got mine it did the same thing. It was an anoide problem. When we were working on it a Fixed guy was around who works on cars. He took a screw driver and touched the two aniodes together in the front of the motor to see if they were live. There was a big spark and the thing has worked perfectly every since. Bad, very bad move on his part I do not recommend doing this ever. The reason he told us that he even tried it was that the anoide was clicking when he hit the Switch. Which mad him think it was an aniode issue.

Maybe a relay problem? Sounds like it. I have the same motor, have never seen this. I had a evinrude 115 that did the same thing, replaced a trim relay and worked perfect since.

    • Still best smoked, as they are an oily fish, too.
    • I am having the same issue with mine. I believe it's a gen 2 that's 2 years old but only been out 3 times now. Took it out last weekend for the first time this year and the hose was stiff and the fittings leaked. I contacted jiffy and they said it needed to go to a service center to be repaired. I called the service center and they would have to order the part anyway. I've tried finding the hose around town but everywhere is sold out. That's definitely going to put a damper on the nice weekend coming up. I'm really kicking myself for going with the propane and not an Ion. This auger was my first experience with jiffy after having and Eskimo and strikemaster. My strikemaster was the 3 blade that had some issues with bending the blades. I called them to find out if there was a replacement that I could buy and they ended up swapping it for free and this was after having it for 6-8 years. I'm very disappointed in the service from jiffy on a 2 year old auger with defective parts. 
    • For me Tullies have always been rather strong flavored. Always needed a lot of smoke to cover that up. 
    • Looking forward to the results of your experiment.

    • a quick blurry shot and off they went. still trying to get them together in a good shot. maybe some day.  
    • I posted that several days ago, although if you know what interest rates will be doing over the next several years you have better ways to spend your time than posting here.    You would no longer have to work for a living for sure.     To refresh your memory, the 9.1 trillion that you and Rand Paul are so upset about would not increase the debt to GDP ratio, assuming a 5% growth in Nominal GDP, which would be 3% growth and 2% inflation.      Do you have a figure for acceptable level of Debt to GDP?  
    • Right.  Sometimes Obama wasn't Progressive enough.  Bernie was more your speed. 
    • This is America.  We have computers and printers.  You can print it and frame it and hang it on your wall.  Nothing stopping you.   In fact Costco will print it on Canvas for you.     Please, post a picture of your office with it framed on the wall.
