Tell Tail connector

hi All,

on Monday the tell tail hose came off my engine of my Yamaha 50 four stroke.

This was when we were out in the bay, we only released it was off when engine stalled and came to halt and we checked.

The After phone calls Davie Anderson Marine, he talked me through removing spark plugs , draining carbs etc - Engine is seized -

dave from clydeoutboards, came up from Glasgow and helped me remove the engine and it now being looked at by clydeoutboards. I called at 1530 he was in Elie just past 5, thanks dave.

I engine did not have clip in that tube so I am posting to make sure you check that pipe is secured.

I might have a big repair bill, hopefully the engine can be salvaged without too much cost.

regards


Scott

Please explain how the tell-tale pipe coming off seized the motor?
I had a similar problem with our Honda BF50 last week. The pipe connecting the the engine block outlet and engine pan outlet spiggot popped off. The result being, the engine pan filled with seawater which caused the motor to cough and splutter when the electrics eventually became submerged.

I got it home, rinsed the heck out of it, let it dry and gave it all a liberal spraying of DWF. The dipstick was also submerged, although a 'sealed' unit, I decided to give it a precautionary oil changed including an expensive Castrol GTX 10w40 flush.

what I can tell tell you is that salt water got into the bottom cylinder and the engine was at full throttle hence the damage.

the other 3 look fine and there seems to be no other damage

yes - it came of the engine mount! didn't drain - filled up very fast - spluttered and never started.

I had the same problem with my bf40 at the start of the season this year. Tell tale popped off on first trip out after being de-winterised. engine filled up with water and stalled. luckily no damage. Took it straight to mechanics who gave it once over, checked plugs, oil etc and luckily all ok. We believe the tell tale pipe had expanded somehow as it was no longer a tight fit. Possibly through use of winter sprays. Now fitted with cable tie to ensure it won't budge and i check it much more often now.

Slim, I have found a Mariner 50 powerhead in the scrap that has a snapped crank. There will be enough bits to fix your engine. 50, phone me if you want it.
