Hadn't realised you'd only bought it in the last few weeks until I looked at some of your other posts.
I agree with Jeff. The more you do the more the seller will try & say you caused the problem. This is something the seller should be sorting out. What warranty were you given?
I don't know what consumer law you have in Eire but would be worth finding out.

Bought privately from a small ads, seller wasn't a crook in fairness, I don't think I have much come back, got a loan of a compression tester today, this evenings test will decide a lot... :-(

In UK consumer law private sale unlikely unless the ad or what the seller said have knowingly misrepresented the condition of the engine. Proving that is the problem.
Good luck with the compression test.

I know. That's why I said 'in UK consumer law'. And in my previous post 'I don't know what consumer law you have in Eire but would be worth finding out'.

Ah, we're very relaxed. If you can find the seller, there's always the chance to give him a wee dig....

PS I'd missed your first post, sry.

Compression test on cold engine
Top =175
Middle =180
Bottom =180

Does those readings seem on the high side? What should they be?
they are well within 10% of each other though ...

Can't say 5 would cause me any concern - although I don't know what Yamaha suggest as the expected figure.
Was it smoke or steam when it happened? Do one or more of the plugs look unusually clean?

Plugs were brand new, all look good, slight tan on the inner white and a bit of carbonising on the tip, ya the smoke was stream as it hissed before I stopped it, anyone know where to find compression figures for yamahas?

Ron

Search on here for outboard service manuals there are some free downloads.or go on eBay I got one for around 6 for a Suzuki 90 on d Isco, from what I have seen on a Yam50hp 125psi is the lowest recommended by Yamaha seen on YouTube getting 150psi
your within the recommended 10%between cylinders see if you can borrow another gauge as a comparison

Cheers
