yam 90 tilt trim

Almost didn't make it out to RTI today, seem I have a iffy tilt/trim switch on the side of the engine (yam 90 2 stroke).

Anyone know a source for a replacement, and is it the sort of thing that can be done DIY,

you can unplug the one on the side of the motor and ignore it. It's fairly expensive for the replacement switch IIRC.
Need spares,consoles,consumables,hire,training or even a new boat?

If your engine is currently trimmed 'up', there is a hole in the right side of the bracket into which you insert a large (but narrowish bladed) screwdriver and by turning anticlockwise you can manually lower the engine.
Remember to tighten it again, otherwise wneh you get the switch fixed it won't work.

Does the remote t/t still work normally?

Only time I use the one on the motor is when I'm trailering or working on or near the motor.

Replacement part (assuming it's the switch on the motor) looks like it's about $50US. Only 3 wires coming off of it; it's a momentary SPDT switch; would be a simple thing to check operation with an ohmmeter.
