Connecting Tilt/Trim switch

Hi all,

just wondering of I can connect the 3 wires from my tilt /trim switch on my throttle to enable it since they are there, but not sure if I can.

Can anyone tell me how if it can be done and if my engine is compatible with it.

The cylinder on the engine does say Yamaha motor co, so I am assuming it can be connected for use with the switch???

Ah, on the engine itself?? there is no switch on the engine for the trim and tilt, so is that a clear indication that I cant use that switch on the throttle

Cheers

Well thats what I am trying to establish myself, but now I dont think I have if there is no switch on the engine itself anywhere, and as for my comment on the cylinder, I was haveing a bit of a daily donkey when I looked at that very late on the other night.

It sounds unlikely. If you currently pull it up by hand and that works then it's very unlikely (you can't do that with PTT). Do you know the full model number of the engine? Yam's usually contain "PT" for Power Trim, EG 50ELPTO means 50hp electric start, power trim, oil injection

off hand I think it only has a serial number and no abbreviations on it. Cheers for the help, I'll take a look if its any different I'll let you know

Sounds like you have a gas assisted lift. Not a power tilt/trim. My Honda 40 is the same way.

If you had PTT, you'd have an electric driven hydraulic pump, most likely mounted on the transom.

The pic of the engine doesn`t show any hydraulic lift cyls.
Bad sign for PTT.
