LOUD TILT/TRIM

4 posts in this topic

I have a 175 yamaha vmax HPDI. When tilting the motor down there is a loud grinding sort of noise which comes from the hydraulics. Had a guy tell me it was just because the hydraulic arm was dry from being in the full tilt position too long. Is this correct? It seems to do it even when not tilted up for very long. However, sometimes I hear it, sometimes not.

My Merc had a similar issue, but I don't know about Yamahas....I had more of loud clicking/grinding. It turned out to be the roller cams on the end of the hydraulic trim rods needed to be greased. Dab grease on the end to make the rollers move freely against the motor.

It should be ok, it's just a squeak from selas, you can try to put a dab of silicone spray, just a small amount then wipe it off, don't let it sit.

I had the same issue and putting a bit of grease on the end the hydraulic trim rods, as recommended by my dealer, fixed it right up. There aren't any gears to grind grin.gif

      I love these fish! The attitude is always fun and they taste great. The strip of y bones can be cut right out with a little effort.    I know where I'll be early in the morning May 13th with topwaters and swimbaits!

      Grubens did permits the 2016 season. Fortune bay stopped writing BWCA permits the end of the 2015 season. Sally retired and that ended the permits at the bay.  Some day we will be able to buy permits on line and print them.

      The video shown in the link posted above shows most of the fish they're handling going back because they're not ready or too green. The video was from 4/14 so I would bet they are done as that was 1 1/2 weeks ago. Cutfoot was done in less than a week. Cliff will be able to tell you for sure when then finished but I'd guess they were done by the end of last week.
