I have a dual ram set up on T225 Yammis. Problem is the port engine is 1/4 " off on allignment. Meaning if both engines look straight to the eye, the cylinders are not both in the same spot respectively. Is this an easy adjustment?? Could 1/4 " throw the boat off to one side??

There should be an inline valve on your hydraulic hose , with a shutoff. Mine is located on the port side behind my batterys in the back storage compartement. Handle will be inline with the hose. Turn it 90 degrees to the straight up position. Then, turn the wheel and only one motor will turn, the other will remain stationary. When they are back in line, turn the shutoff valve back to the original postion. I do this occasionally on my SeaCat when they get slightly out of alignment. Thanks, Good Luck, Doc of the Bay :thumbsup:

Doc, thanks I gotta look for that shut off. My buddy has a cat and has same shut off you mention. I have never seen it anywhere on mine but will look hard. I have a feeling its gonna be in a VERY hard to reach spot. Thanks.
