LOUD TILT/TRIM

Recommended Posts

mrjigger

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

      If you are willing to go a little further into Canada, I would recommend Hollinshead Resort, a few hours north of Thunder Bay.  The resort is the only one on the lake, and in June offers excellent Walleye Fishing, as well as some dandy Northern Pike.  It's somewhere you can drive to as well.

      Caught 20-23 gills and 6 crappies. Fun day on the 10 inches of ice. The whole lake was close to the same where I cut all the holes out and around

      I’m still seeing very random thicknesses all over.  In the past few days I’ve been from St. Cloud to Winnie and have seen vehicles on the ice and open water on the same lake. I’m in Little Falls.  Tonight I checked 2 lakes NW of town.  Both had people fishing.  One looked to be safe for wheeler travel and the other, very near it, still had an open lead and you could see the difference between the first sheet of ice and the second. I hope it doesn’t get covered with snow anytime soon so we can still tell where the changes are. Be safe. Bring floatation and picks.  And don’t drive yet! Ruh ro....

      I was on a small north metro lake today and found between 2.5 and 4 inches. One of the spud bar holes I punched started spewing water up so definitely needs a little more time.

      I was out on Round Lake last night (12/9/17) for the first time of the year. I was very surprised to see 12 inches of ice. I checked a few other holes and found anywhere from 11-12 inches. Keep in mind, I was about 300 yds out from the southeast shoreline. I’m not sure if it’s consistent across the middle of the lake. I only saw one group with a snowmobile. All other groups walked out, at least where was.  Anyone have any reports for ice thickness on other lakes in the area?

      Alot of open water pockets on bigger lakes still, some people out on cannon on 3 inches about 60 yards or less from shore.

      Called baitshop, he said people are going out from beach and a couple houses out. Wouldn't say how much ice. Who's got an ice depth?
