I've been try to sell the 10hp for ages, still waiting for someone genuine, now I know why a lot of "for sale" ads say "no time wasters " :-(

RegardingThe PTT on the 30hp, pump and parts works perfect, it's a little sensor (potentiometer probably)that tells the gauge clock how high or low that doesn't seem to be working, to someone in the trade it might be an easy fix?

Very easy - 1 or 2 screws to remove, unplug it, reverse procedure with new sensor!

(Assuming it's a standard Yam part as per the gubbed one I took off my old 50......)

I must admit, until that post above I thoght it was the actual PT was gubbed (i.e not moving or leaking fluids). Might be worth checking the guy with the 40 didn't make the same mistake?

Also as hinted at above - a private sale will get you a bit more cash (the dealer has to make money, so he / she will never offer you the going rate for a used engine) Having said that, as you have aleady alluded to - is that a price worth paying to remove the hassle?

I asked him was he interested and he said he'd have a look at my engines and see from there... If he low balls too much I'll try and shift them myself, but to be honest it's not something I enjoy...

Regards the sensor, is it a replace only job? No serviceable parts?

Cheers

Aye, it's that old "can you be bothered with the hassle of a private sale for an extra £nn?".

Re. the sensor, I think so. Certainly the one on my old Yam was solid (literlly - whoch is why I had to replace it!) but joking aside the sensor is essentially a variable resistor attached to a sprung arm that bears on the swivel bracket. As it lives in one of the wetter parts of the engine (over the transom where all the spray from the front of the leg is being jetted up) they tend to be sealed units.

If you are in the mood I'm sure you could break it open and find out the problem then glue it all back together - unless of course you find the resistor track is corroded to dust!

Yup, ye were right, dealer offered way below what I expected

Going to see if I can shift the 30hp myself privately, it is a good engine after all and if it doesn't sell, it'll do the job for the rest of the year...

I'm not really supposed to be looking at new engines...... But it would be rude not to ask about more details of 30 hp ptt...
