    Yamaha tilt pin stuck

    I got a 2003 f115 that is leaking tt fluid. I tried to remove it, but the bottom pin is stuck. It is the kind that has two bolts with washers holding both ends in, then an 8" pin that is supposed to slide out. I have been beating it with a sledge, and also an air hammer. Nothing. I have taken the weight off with a strap, and sprayed the crap out of it. I have tried heating it, and using freeze off. Is there something you guys have found that works other then all this?

    I dont think we are talking about the same setup. Yamaha outboard f115? It has the upper pin, and the lower pin. Upper pin is held in with a clip, then slides out really easy, Lower pin is held in with two short bolts and washers. https://www.crowleymarine.com/yp/CE969174/power-trim-tilt-assy-1-f115txrb-2003-115hp

    Set timing question. 350 mag mpi

    2001 mag mpi lh rotation spec calls for 8 degrees before tdc. Just to clarify, the mark on the balancer should be to the left of the notch on the block?

    I have bravo 3's with dual props so no counter rotation. On the engine cover it says they are left hand rotation. I will check tomorrow, yes it helps. That is what I was looking for.

    Set timing question. 350 mag mpi

    Thunderbolt IV Ignition Timing 1. Connect timing light (91-99379 or similar) to No. 1 spark plug. Connect power supply leads on light to 12 volt battery. Refer to “Specifications” for cylinder numbering and location. 2. Connect tachometer to engine. 3. Start engine and run at normal idle speed. 4. Aim timing light at timing tab, located on timing gear cover and crankshaft torsional damper. IMPORTANT: GM engine timing marks (on tab) are in 2-degree increments. MCM and MIE LH engines will have “A” (Advance) mark to the left of “0.” Timing must be set on the “A” side of “0” (Top Dead Center). file:///C:/Users/User/Desktop/beach/16B4R2.PDF

    I thought it was supposed to go to the left, but when I checked the other engine that runs good, it was to the right, so I copied that. I just want to know if they are both wrong or right.

    I have zero, I just want to know if 8 degrees btdc puts the mark to the left of right of zero

    I am referring to the notch on the balancer wile running with the timing light on.

    Overheating, losing coolant.

    2001 mag mpi 350, closed cooling losing coolant. I was getting higher temps 180 instead of the 160. I got new thermostat, and realized during installation that I was very low on coolant. Filled it up, took for ride, and it was perfect. Took it out again 4 days later, and it way overheated. Shut it down right away, got home on the other engine, and after it cooled off, found it way low on coolant again, and it looks like it was in the bilge. I filled it, and squeezed a few hoses, and found seepage, so tightened a the hoses and let it sit for two days. The level held good, so I thought it was fixed. Took it out again, and same thing, overheated, and lost the coolant. I pressure checked the heat exchanger and it held good. wouldnt that rule out the circ pump? Should I remove the thermostat to pressure check the whole system? The last time i took it out, I watched the gauge, and it held at 160 for about 15 minutes, then all at once it started going up fast. I shut it down before the alarm, but it took 30 minutes at idle with other engine, and when i got home the overheated engine was still way hotter then one i just shut down. It has to be a huge leak to lose almost all the coolant in 15 minutes, and why is it holding pressure with the radiator tester? Thanks guys.

    Thank you, I have also been looking at some local builders. They seam to run between 2 and 3k for the rebuilds. Then i have the installation.

    Its hard to see. I could barely see it, but its right next to the tool. Its so small, it looks like a towel will wipe it off.

    Just got back from the machine shop. He said both heads have a small crack in them.

    I am using google photos. I must see them due to cookies then. They are alway on my computer even when Wingnut reposted them. Is the damage enough to not bother with this block?

    Overheating, losing coolant.

    I took pictures of each piston as they were cleaned at the top. I am assuming they are not clean enough? I have been reading other peoples threads on cleaning them, and they range from alcohol (it took him hours) to oven cleaner )15 minutes but that seams mighty harsh. Is there another step to take?

    Just did the timing chain test. It changes direction instantaneously. I clean up the block and pistons, then soaked them in crc marine. I will post pics in about two hours.

    No, not yet.

    Any certain type of wire wheel? Do I have to worry about scratching the surface with it? Other than laying the straight edge, what else can i do to make sure block is OK. Anything to do with the cylinder walls or piston tops?

    I Got the heads off. I have individual pics of each head and piston if there is anything that you would want to see a close up of. Is there anything I need to do to them before they go to the machine shop?

    I picked up a snap on digital torque with angle.
