Port 2007 yamaha 250 wont trim/tilt. Have a hunch that its the hydraulic fluid level. Anyone know any tricks how to refill if the motor is stuck down?

If it is out of the water, loosen the bleed screw and lift the motor by hand. Have someone help tilt it up, they are pretty heavy.

Cold weather is not a friend of the tilt/trim. If you get it running (repeated attempts), run it up/down many times. The tilt/trim relay is not super reliable, so test before dunking your boat. The motor is also a high failure item, another reason to test before dunking.

Just replaced my starboard tilt/trim motor on a 2008 F250BTXR. That's one expensive motor.
Like said above. Remove Bleed screw raise manually.
Add fluid if that's the problem raise the motor as you add until the motor binds then plug. then raise and lower several cycles and slowly remove the bleed screw to release any air. wash rinse repeat depending on the amount of air released. if almost none then good to go.

Thanks guys. the relay is fine, just a hunch that its fluid cause it sounds dry when trying to engage the trim. Gonna tackle this tomorrow, hopefully its not the motor. How much was that sucker?

I am pretty sure on that motor you can get the fill cap off when it is down. a nipple on the fluid bottle with a piece of hose will let you fill the reservoir to get the engine up. If the motor is turning it is ok.

If the motor runs, it is good and if it doesn't go up or down, then the fluid is low and you have a leak. Probably in the ram seals, which aren't hard to change if you have the right tools. I started using the after-market trim motors because I could buy 3 for what 1 factory motor costs.

For tilt motors etc.. check out DB Electrical online

When the tilt motor on my skiff went out, the Yamaha replacement was almost $500 but I was able to get a new one from DB Electrical for less than $100.
