How do I tilt a PTT Yam 90 manually?

Currently have no power to my yammie, all cables are disconnected and elsewhere, and need to tilt the engine up some more for ready for a drive.
How do I do that?

Cheers

Neil

Carefully - using a battery and jump leads.

Thats how I've always done it anyway.
Otherwise there should be a bleed valve somewhere you can open while you tilt it up, then close it off when in position. Bit fiddly though if you are alone.

Hi Nasher,

It's the bleed valve method I was thinking of, as getting the jump leads onto the pos and neg without earthing out elsewhere is a bit risky I reckon. No cables or anything on at moment.

Normally there are two screws on the side of the ram unit, one comes fully out to top up with oil, the other will do a half turn and open the internal valve and allow you to manually heave the engine into the tilted up position. You're handbook really ought to tell you

Bit dodgy I know, but I usualy clamp the -ve on the block somewhere like a head bolt then carefully touch the +ve direct to the output side of the up or down solenoid.

Unfortunatly I don't have any experiance with Yammies regarding exactly where the bleed valve is etc, but have found the archives on some of the US forums very helpful researching stuff like this.

I'm sure somebody else will come along soon and point you in the right direction.

Good luck

Nasher.

On miy 115 the release valve is clearly marked. Can't see it at the moment but it says something like 'Manual' and 'Power'. It's raised lettering on the casing. You need to turn the screw all the way one direction or the other. It looks like it should be a half-turn but will be more.

On a 115, it's on the left side (looking from the water at the back of the motor.) Marked with some weird picture that represents tilting the motor.

Job done, thanks folks.
Used Nashers' jump lead idea in the end. There was room for the pos and took the neg off elsewhere.
