I have just removed a Yamaha 50 DETO (2 stroke late 80s/ ealy 90s Autolube 40/50 3 cylinder model) from long term storage. It's been in my back garden unused for about 6 seasons.
I now have a hull for it. Couple of issues with it though.
First one is I'm not sure It's trimming in as far as it should be. Hard to tell looking at it as it is on a vertical frame and transoms are not vertical. It's making an unpleasant gritty noise at full trim but bleeding and refilling the system has not fixed this or improved the range.
I've got photos!
I'd be most grateful if somebody, anybody!, with the same engine could trim theirs in all the way to see how it compares with with mine.
These are the shots of it trimmed in as far as it will go. Leaning on it as it trims in does not increase the range. It feels like it hits a definite stop.
