Bargain, the screw on the lower starboard side will over ride the power trim and tilt and allow you to lift the engine up. Its heavy and still because you are still working against the hydraulics but thats what it is therefore. If yo don't trust the hydraulics stick a piece of 4"x4" between the cylinder rams and the leg and lower it on this to get you home.

Tough as old boots those Ospreys.

Good find, superb engine therefore good winter project

Well thanks for the advice on tilting the engine Pete7. I need to get it home this week as cannot afford another trip up to Newport.I had spotted the screw but was not entirely sure what it was for!

Looks like i'll need an engine crane once i get it home though!!!!

FYI that screw opens "the wrong way" i.e. clockwise to allow you manually tilt the engine - on at least two Yamaha 90's I've had. As mentioned elsewhere it's very heavy to lift manually so get some leverage or jack it.

If the twin trim cylinders are teh source of your leak you may be in luck as I did some work on one of these before in-situ. Anything else and you may need an engine crane as the T+T unit can't be got out without splitting the transom mounting bracket.

You did get a good bargain but keep some cash in reserve for the T+T - some parts can be eye-wateringly expensive.

And i thought it was stuckWill have to be careful as it's a bit chewed already.I'll make sure i take some stout bits of wood with me and a jack.
A friend i knew had an old evenrude 70vro without t+t and he used to tie a strap around the leg and fasten it to the top of the A frame as the tilt catch wasn't too good. Was wondering if that would be an extra thing to try

here at last

Have finally got the boat home from shropshire.Matey who sold it to me moved out and left the boat behind much to the wrath of the new owners.He didn't say exactly when he was going and due to being unwell i couldn't get there to collect it,but managed it last week.Got home and found it wouldn't fit in the front garden as it's too big so had to leave it parked up the road half on the pavement whilst still hitched to the car.Expected someone to start moaning at any minute.Luckily,i have found a large unused industrial unit to park it in over the winter where i can work on it at weekends.It's very secure and hidden and has the advantage of being behind the owners residence,so it's ideal.
Just need to start by giving it a good clean before the real work can begin.

(It was lucky that no-one took a fancy to my boat and nicked it before i got there!I would not have been a happy bunny)
