F50 yamaha trim died
« on: Sun 10 Jun 10:16 2018 »
Anyone had any experience with trim issues

Went out last night and got into the fish and didnt notice any issues

However back at the ramp i struggled to lift the motor with both controls at wheel and controls on motor itself

Down sounds normal but up there isnt much there at all and is struggling

Have it home now, will need it looked at coming saturday. Not a good time to lose it right when the fishing is good.

Can they be rebuilt or is entire replacement required usually ?

    Battery checked
    12.4V
    Relay checked
    12.34V @ green wire terminal when operated down
    12.34V @ blue wire terminal when operated up

    Think i can find a part number for motor ... nope
    Can find part number for every bolt & gasket but they leave off part# i need

    Most online are only 2 wire

    Mine seems to have 4 wires ... 2 for front & 2 for rear controls

    Waiting for yamaha to reply ... the U.S has them for $100ish, here in AUST $400+

    My F60 trim motor finally died on the weekend. It's been rusty for years but now has a hole in it.

    I just ordered one from DB Electrical in the USA for about USD $120 inc air freight.

    Part # TRM0071 which is to suit a 2002 F60 and the trim motor has the 1.5" long shaft. Yamaha genuine part is $564 in Aus.

    Mechanic finally got back to me
    Genuine is $1000
    $450 non genuine
    $150 in labor unless a bolt snaps, then its hourly rate to begin painful task of removing it
    I spotted that website but couldnt match my model # to any of their motors

    Mine is F50AET-62Y-L-412790-U

    What is the foam like ring in this pic ?
    Anyone know a part number to replace to foam ring if needed ?
    Motor came out ok, no visible damage.
    Its operational, just wont lift the motor
    Assuming windings could be shot

    Is this filter needed ?
    I have sourced one from the UK but at a cost of $70AUD
    No one in Aust seems to carry an extensive list of outboard parts
