    Does Yamaha have troll control?

    The connector is there on all fuel injected models that have a tiller model option even if yours is not a tiller model. I know that is to 115 hp possibly even to 150. Anything larger will require command control setup. Sent from my SM-J737V using Lake Ontario United mobile app

    Does Yamaha have troll control?

    Don't need the full Yamaha command setup to do this. Sent from my SM-J737V using Lake Ontario United mobile app

    Does Yamaha have troll control?

    I have a 2014 Yamaha F70 and I hooked up a double pole double throw switch to the connector for variable troll switch (VTS). 50 rpm increments from 600 to 1000 per pulse up or down. Yamaha now offers the switch as a kit also. Must have a later model motor to do this Sent from my SM-J737V using Lake Ontario United mobile app

    Winterization question

    That was a friends motor and the peacocks were left out. The mud trapped some water causing the crack. Sent from my SM-J737V using Lake Ontario United mobile app

    Winterization question

    A few years ago a friend of mine pulled the block and manifold plugs on a 5.0. He had a slip in a muddy area. Water did drain but there was some trapped in mud and that resulted in a cracked block in the spring. A valuable lesson for me. Since then, I always remove the plugs and blow compressed air in the holes with a tube and a rubber seal at the end. Usually more water and debris drains. Also always remove the hose at the water pump. I had a 4.3. Sent from my SM-J737V using Lake Ontario United mobile app

    Best releases?

    Blacks also. Must change them every year. A few years ago I had one wear and break at the bottom curve and lost a 14 lb weight. Good thing it wasn't on the probe side. Chamberlain has a good stacker I use. Sent from my SM-J737V using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  10. I am assuming it has a hydraulicly actuated rudder for steering. If it does there is an interesting way to hook up an autopilot that runs both the main steering and the kicker. I had a setup on a 27 single inboard. I ran a steering cable from the rudder arm around to the steering tube on a T9.9 Yamaha. The kicker was turned by the rudder so any autopilot ( mine was a Raymarine) that turned the rudder arm Cylinder would also turn the kicker. Worked great. The steering cable had a special end to hook a rod end bearing to the rudder. Got it at Salmon Country in Mexico. Was about 200 $ for the cable. If I had to do it over again I would modify a standard cable on the drive end and save 150 bucks. Sent from my SM-J737V using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  11. I have a Sea Nymph GLS 175 with a Yamaha F70LA. Put it on in 2014. Set up on a nema 2000 network to a Lowrance hds gen 2 touch. All functions are viewed on the Lowrance. It gets 8+ mpg at most efficient rpm and does about 26 mph there. Troll all day on a gallon of gas. Hooked up a VTS and will adjust from 600 to 1000 rpm in 50 rpm increments. My neighbor put a new Yamaha 90 VMax on GLS195 last year. Acceleration out of the hole on that is amazing. Would recommend that on a 195. Note the Lowrance screen touching 8mpg at 4200 rpm and 26 mph Sent from my SM-J737V using Lake Ontario United mobile app

    Sold / Closed EZ steer

    Those ends are simply made of airline fittings. You may be able to replace the Male and female connections with the same ones available at hardware stores or Harbor Freight. Sent from my SM-J737V using Lake Ontario United mobile app

  15. Recently had an uncle pass away. He collected old rods and reels among other things. Had many old Pfluger casting reels. These have some sort of pre monofilament cotton or dacron line on them and are about half the size of a 27 series reel. Also a few old spinning reels like the Record half bail shown. Just wondering what they may be worth. Any comments appreciated Sent from my SM-J737V using Lake Ontario United mobile app
