Help

Well all I set out to do was take off the motor on the power tilt on my 50 2st Yam as is is very rusty!
Well I just can't get the bugger out thought it would come out the back so have taken the engin off and still can't get the tilt mec out!!!!
Any ideas?

You will need to split the clamp brackets.

There should be between one & 4 (depends on your trim unit) bolts fixing the ram / motor subassembly to the clamps. Once they are undone you also need to separate the top at the tilt tube (where the steering cable goes through) by undoing a nut (usually on the stbd end) that will allow the clamps to separate & release the PT unit.


IF that's the back of a single ram one it might be as simple as finding & removing the locking pin & knocking the bottom shaft out of the casting that connects the bottom of the clamp brackets.

Thanks this is what I have tried, but can not seem to split the clamps to slide out the PTT I have removed all the bolts but the thing won't budge!!

Anyone?

Aye, a big hammer sometimes is the solution! (the trick is to know when the wallup is getting "too hard"!)

Sorry I never got back sooner - it's been a bit of a crazy week......


FWIW you can get repair kits for the motors & "hydraulic repair" kits that include al lthe washers & O- rings. Also can buy motor brushes for a few quid.

My total rebuild is fading into history, so I canlt remmeber exactly where I got the various bits from, but I got mine from either....

Most likely:
Davey on here (DA Marine in Tayport) - I def. got the PT motor here, just can't remember if I bought the new brushes at the same time or what.....

Other likely contenders are
Yampower in Glasgow
Mitchells Outboard Services In Renfrew.

All of them have sent me stuff for various engines in the past, and all take phone orders, so a quick call could be the easiest solution.
