Default WTB - Yamaha Trim/Tilt wrench

I have a 2000 Yamaha 200 OX66. I am looking for the wrench to remove the caps from the trim and tilt cylinders. The tilt cylinder is leaking fluid and I would like to reseal it during the off season. If someone has one of these they would like to part with please let me know.


Appreciate the help.
Rob

Don't have a Yamaha one but I purchased one from harbor freight for very cheap and worked fine when I changed out mine.

Thanks for the feedback. I'm located in Brookfield, CT. I figured I was going to have to break down and buy one from sim yamaha or marine tech but I thought I'd check it out on here first.

When do you think you'll get to the seals ?? I replaced mine last winter. If you keep me in mind close to when your doing it . Shoot me a PM and maybe if you cover shipping and leave a refundable deposit I can send the tool your way and you can send it back in a timely fashion upon completion. Up to you . I'm willing to help out

Kb thats awsome. I appreciate it. I will keep you in mind definitely. Unfortunately I called and emailed Andy from Sim yamaha last week received no response. Called again today with no response once again. I have delt with him once before and he seemed to have a pretty bad attitude. Any ways I guess what I'm saying is I tried to buy the seals for the last week with no success. I will order them within the next few days.

Thanks again,
Rob

Those tools suck. They work well for reinstalling a new cap, but in most cases the pins will not be strong enough to remove a cap that has been on for a while. Many guys end up with a hammer and punch in the holes of the cap to get break the cap loose. I have had success with the punch and hammer method in the past but just this week I tried a pipe wrench and it worked fantastic. Using a pipe wrench you can get the cap off without destroying it.

You have to be careful with the pipe wrench as there is only a thin lip of cap sticking up above the cylnder but if your careful, there is ENOUGH to grab and you can spin off the cap without damage.

Seriously don't waste your $$$ on that wrench it's probably not gonna work....

My dewalt grinder wrench fit my buddy's 115 yamaha. Pins weren't strong enough to take the cap off though.

have had similar experiences with SIM, switched to boats.net and saved $$ and got what I needed, just bought some trim seals actually. I too bought the removal tool from marine tech tools, the quality is well worth the price.

Mine broke a spanner wrench getting it off. Ended up using a air chisel, and worked it off very easily. Used a spanner wrench to install the new one. Was pretty simple. Don't forget to releive the pressure before removal.

I don’t have a Yamaha F300 but on the F225 Trim Unit the is just enough of the cap sticking up to get a pipe wrench on it. Pipe wrench works WAY better then the actual tool or you can buy the tool and either break it or strip the holes and then try a pipe wrench.

My experience has been 100% the opposite of Mpellet. The Marine Tech Tool trim seal tool has now removed a few dozen caps for me with ZERO issues and some Seastar end caps too (bonus).

If you do not know what you are doing it is easy to do what Mpellet assumes will happen but if you are somewhat mechanical its EZPZ (using a pipe wrench is a clue not to listen to his advise)

Here is a step by step video with the tool.

I posted an opinion, it’s certainly your prerogative to disagree with my opinion but you did so as if you were intentionally trying to be confrontational with me. If you had simply disagreed with me without being an asshole, you would not have heard even a peep from me. I don’t agree with everyone’s opinion and I don’t expect others to always agree with mine. Analyzing the opinions of others is often a learning experience.




Pipe wrench works great if you know how to use a pipe wrench and does no damage to the cap. You like the tool, good on ya but I don’t suffer chodes well and you obviously are one, so piss off.......

Good to see you replied, I think you are full of bad advise, too bad you continue to post garbage intel.

Morning Chode,

In that hands of anyone with the mechanical dexterity of an Orangutan or better, a small pipe wrench can remove those caps in seconds with absolutely no damage at all to either the cap of the trim assembly regardless of how long it’s been since the caps have been off or how tight they are. You needed a specialized wrench, I guess, I’d feel stupid too and be trying to encourage others to follow my lead, misery and stupidity always seeks company.

Carry on.......

Prove it

as I did above with a video but you use a pipewrench and show no damage, that seems reasonable, no?

Also, quick question on your use of the word “chode”

As I find this this one is puzzling

You state that you do not ”suffer chodes”

a “chode” is a small squat penis per the urban dictionary,

If you do not like (your words here) “suffering chodes” is that because you like to take big dicks? and that is cool, I just do not understand why you would express that in this discussion?

Much like your selection of tools you may also want to look at your choice of insulting words as both are showing your level of intelligence and Its not looking too strong.

So

1: I will wait for the video of your magnificent wrenching skills (and will issue a FULL apology if you pull a used tilt and trim seal carrier off unscathed with a pipewrench)

2: Lets rethink the insults, You can continue to call me “chode” of course as I have been called MUCH worse by far better people.

Wasted more then enough of my time with you.

Wow, that was exciting.

When I did my tilt ram I cut a slot out of a piece of 1/4 flat bar and put bolts through it. Wasn't pretty but it worked. Was nice to have a 3' long handle on it so I could focus on keeping everything lined up instead of struggling to pull hard on a shorter wrench. Also, cut a slot out of a piece of pipe and pinch it between the motor and the wrench to hold the wrench in the holes. Once the cap is loose, raise it up and take the pvc out.
