A thread about threads...

I'm re-assembling a 1990 Yamaha-made, Mariner-badged 30 HP 2 stroke. The current job is putting the intake back on...

The manual says there are seven bolts of one size and two of another; the ones that came out were about three different sizes. Is there any way I can find out what length / spec these should have been?

(FWIW they're 33 and 35 below)
Cheers
Hugh

I'm looking at a parts diagramme of what I think is your motor now and it shows 3 different bolt sizes. Is yours the clone of the C30 Yamaha?

I'm showing part numbers

97095-06025-00 (your #33)

97013-06035-00 (your #35)

and another size for the next one anticlockwise from your #35 which is part # 97313-06050-00

Thanks Nos4r2, with a bit of Googling that should get me what I need.

Not sure about the C30 though - they both are model '689'.

Cheers
Hugh

Unfortunately the PDF is slightly too big to post here-drop me an email addy and I'll send you it. It certainly looks like the same intake in the pictures.

I think the C30 is the dark grey 'Origin' Yamaha version of your motor.

The other odd thing is the heads being different. Some of them have the original paint on them, others don't.

I think things have become a bit of a jumble / jigsaw puzzle!

My guess is the bolt stamped 8 is original, the lighter weight bolt stamped 9 is newer. The numbers are a reference to the torque setting you will find in the manual.

Well, I cleaned it out with a plug tap and the screw tightened up to the recommended torque settings. Hylomar blue substituted for the gaskets (which are no longer available) and it now starts on the first turn of the key - without any puffs of fuel/air being blown out the sides as before.



Thanks for your help.

Next time you take something like this apart it might be worth sketching the hole pattern on a bit of cardboard and sticking the bolts in the cardboard diagram as they come out. It saves a lot of grief especially if you're reassembling something months later. Another option is lay them out in their relative positions and photograph them with for example your cameraphone.
