T'n'T

Just for fun, and in order to frighten myself, while I was on the phone to order my official Yamaha nuts I thought I'd ask how much a new trim and tilt motor would be cos mines a bit rusty:


600 quid!!!!!!

Though to be fair he reckoned he could do an aftermarket one for 300 ish.

Is there anything to be gained from taking it off, cleaning it up and hammeriting it?

I've put it on my shopping list. Though to be fair it's quite a long list.

And as soon as you get one ticked off another will be added!

I just planned a rewire and a clean with mine and I ended up replacing ALL electronics, all gauges, the wiring, switch panel, distribution boxes, fuel line, fuel filter yada yada yada....

I started intercepting the postie before he dropped yet another parcel of goodies off at my door just so 'er indoors didn't see.

Yes.

While it's off probably worth removing the lid & replacing the brushes & seals.

I retro fitted my PT - knackered motor / pump assy was about 70 form someone's scrap bin, brushes & seals (read: O- rings) came to something like 15. Paint was in stock already!
