Default Looking for Yamaha trim tilt for a 1991 C40ELRP outboard.

I am a new member and just recently became the owner of a 1991 Sweetwater pontoon with a 40HP Yamaha 2 cycle outboard. The engine was checked out and is in very good condition. The boat has used for fishing in a deep lake and currently has a manual lift. It is my understanding that the "C" designation means it was built in Canada. Yamaha on their parts website only shows a trim kit on the "40ELRP" motor. The Yamaha trim lift part shows 6HP-43840-04-EK. Has anyone had any experience trying to add trim lift to the C40ELP engine or know if there is a trim lift kit that should work?

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

CMC makes a kit that would work, butt ugly though.

I saw the CMC product and was thinking about it as a fallback. The trim kit part number that I found looks like it should work but I have not found anyone who can confirm.
Thanks

It should fit your C model, which I believe stands for commercial.

If the bracket part numbers on the two engines are the same the Yamaha kit would most likely work on both but best bet would be to ask Yamaha, SIMS or Boats.net technical help via email to confirm.

C does not stand for Canada.

It is power trim and tilt.

Yamaha does not offer a retrofit modification kit that will provide power trim and tilt for the C40 model.

While it can be done it would be very extensive and costly. The C40 does not use the clamp brackets, the mid-section, and the electrical components that are needed to interface with the trim and tilt unit. All of these parts would have to be obtained and added to the motor. The motor would have to be disassembled to install them.

Most find it more practical to sell the C40 model and then find and buy a 40ELRP model. Or, install the CMC kit.

Why do you state that it should fit?

What about the swivel bracket? The part of the motor to which the top of the trim/tilt piston attaches.

No basis for thinking it will work, just guessing from the diagram of the components

I thought they advertised universal fit, I don't know for sure, you could research and see. They make one for up to 35h.p. and another for up to 130 h.p.

I thought the C stood for commercial

I have a 94 40 hp c and have bought tilt trim motors from DBElectrical that worked but not sure about your year /model

Can you help me better understand what you mean by the clamp brackets, mid section and electrical components. Does electrical components include the trim relay and trim switch or there other electrical things?

Thanks for your input on this and I would like to drill down into the details of what has to be done if I do the retrofit.

You must have a C40PLRS. P for power tilt. OP has a C40ELRP. Manual tilt.

Completely different models.

Perhaps you should read the entire post. I advised he contact a knowledgeable resource to confirm compatibility. I ran 70 hp Merc 3 cylinders and OMC 85hp v4s with manual tilts for 20+ years without any trouble nor regrets. If the engine were mine and I truly had a physical problem tilting it I would get one of these https://www.cabelas.com/product/Adju...B&gclsrc=aw.ds

To me it's a lot better looking than the CMC.

this one looks pretty good as well but I still would like know how complicated it really is to retrofit the motor before I decide to abandon that approach.

Still no word from tech support from SIMS or Boats.net.yet.
