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.

    • Sonar works from above, cameras need to be submerged. What am I missing here?
    • I've also had good luck spray painting PVC.  Biggest thing I found is to do lots of light coats, the PVC makes the paint want to run in a hurry.
    • I believe you can do this with the Lowrance HDS 9 and above.
    • I'll go with another loss in overtime.
    • Calling a win tonight, it's going to happen!
    •   You'll probably run into plenty of "experts" among the experts, too...   Floor heat is nice, but definitely not the best option if you're looking for the best efficiency, since it is a slow recovery system.  If you were looking for efficiency and lowest cost, I would suggest looking into a mini-split heat pump to complement the gas furnace if you have off-peak available.   (Disclaimer: Not an expert either, but I have stayed at a Holiday Inn Express a few times.)      
    •   Same here. I have 3 of them. Use them in the SUV, Boat, Snowmobile, and Dual Sport bike. They seem to work better on my sled in the winter with no issues at all over my old ifinder which would eat batteries in the cold. They are discontinued but you can still find them out there on the List or bay once in a while. I like them as they are a crossover and can be used on the road or with a lake map which is the main thing I use them for. Wish they would bring something like it back.
    • Ridiculous... but it would work.  Sorry to offend, guess I don't get quite so fired up about concrete.
    • Concrete. Way easier to plow. My parents have a gravel driveway WORST THING EVER! Impossible to snow blow because of all the rocks always wet and muddy. Sure it's cheaper but in the long it's not worth the cheaper price. 
    • I have used a Lowrance XOG (no longer available) on my boat and on my snowmobile for years now with no problems with cold or speed of tracking. I use a Lakemaster card for Minnesota lake for fishing, a Navionics card for coverage in Canada and LOW for winter and summer fishing, and a Red Pine snowmobile trail map for riding. Have ridden at 30 below without any problem with the touchscreen, it is hooked up to sled power, so it probably is getting some heat, and I put it inside my jacket when I get off. I recommend that you do a little research on the available chips for where you are going because different manufacturers use different chips. My use pretty much limits me to Garmin, and expect to pay couple to $300+ for chips for where I travel.
