Does yours not have a cut-out on the flywheel for an winding an emergency rope start round it? The earlier V4's did. This is a '98 US model 115 and you can see the cutout on the flywheel.

Wouldn't fancy hand starting one though!

Must admit I ain't looked ... I asked the guy I bought it from whether it had a backup hand start and he said no ... but maybe you can use one and he just didn't have one.

Yeah that would be the other thing, be a bit like fitting a starting handle on a Tdi Defender, mainly useful if you want a broken arm

I will have a look tomorrow and see...

Actually, looking at that hand start it looks like it wouldn't be that hard- mine is only 1/3 of the way out from the centre of the flywheel on a 50 and I can start it easily enough.
With that right on the rim of the flywheel you've got a much better mechanical advantage.

Breakdown

1 Never
Shouldn't ever have a problem that I can't come home and fix. Twin yamaha 70's with over 500 hrs, made in 1990. Twin fuel systems, forward (main) fuel system is split with twin filters/water seperators, aft fuel system is bladder bags with inline auto filters, allways carry an extra. Twin isolatable batteries. Does anybody know if you can remove the cowl over the flywheel and pull start these if a starter conks out? All I need to get is a power prop so I can ride on plane if one does conk out. Also, it would be wise to at least have an rpm and a temp guage installed in the outboard, (RPM obvious), as severe overheating usually causes permanant breakdown.

Jimmy.

Yam 70

Looks like you can-just found this pic of an '85 yamaha 70 on ebay.com and you can see what looks like a rope channel and cutout on the flywheel. I don't think they changed much on the 3cyls. Ebay item is
