Help Tip: If you have a question that has not been answered to your satisfaction in the archives, it is always best to start a new thread of your own. By starting your own thread, you will receive the maximum number of views by forum members.

Below are some additional forum policies in hopes of all iboats members will follow, Thank you.

1. Please do not reply to old topics or hijack existing topics. Old topics of a technical nature are like a library book, Please do not write in them.

2. Old topics should be considered archives and used for reference only. Please do not reply to them.

3. Do not take over someone elseís topic (aka hijack) with your own question, even if it is similar. If you have a question that has not been covered to your satisfaction in the archives, it is always best to start a new topic of your own.

4. If you have a question for the original poster (OP) and the topic is over 30 days old, send the OP a PM, he may not even visit the forums any longer, or may not notice your question in the old topic.

5. By starting your own topic, you will receive the maximum number of views by forum helpers that may not even notice your question when itís posted at the end of someone elseís topic. And those answers will be specific to your particular issue.

6. Please do not post to topics that have been inactive for more than 3 months unless you are the original poster. We have very active forums and any topic that remains inactive for that long should be considered "dead". It is especially confusing when there is an entirely new question posted to an old topic.

7. Posting at the end of any topic is considered to be hijacking the original posters topic which in turn subjects the topic to be closed if it continues to happen thus not making it fair to the original poster in the future had for some reason he/she needed to return for additional information or provide an update of the problem solved which is always welcomed within a reasonable amount of time frame.

8. Please note that you should see a red banner pop up near the bottom of each inactive topic asking you not to reply to old topics. The Red banner will read: Please note this topic has been inactive for 90 days. For the best results, please start a new topic.

Thank you all in advance for doing your part in helping iboats run a smooth ship.

  • Pressure relief valve on 2003 F225 Yamaha

    I have looked on the parts list that is on the Yamaha web page and can't find the Pressure relief valve. Can anyone tell me exactly where it is on the engine and a referance number on the parts list. When I had the 10 checks done I asked the folks that did it and they either didn't know or didn't want to tell me where it was. Thanks, Ben

    hello dude top secret if we tell we must kill its a classified 4 stroke whiz bang thing. well I guess you can keep a secret and no one else will know. otherwise I will be out of a job. the parts manual calls it a "cover". how they got that I aint got a clue. I guess it was a bad translation day. anyway if you standat the backof the engine and look fwd you will se a rectangular seam just below the lower cowl. that has to be removed. if you ghave never done this we will doit the long way today. use a 5mm allen key and remove both plastic side cowls or trim pieces. the use the 5mm and remove the rectangular piece of trim at the back. then looking in on the power head adapter you will see a large approx 1-7/16ths" hex that is tetained by a sheetmetal locking plate. remove the 10mm headed locking bolt. remove the plate and unthread that big nut. that big plastic nut assy is the relief valve assy. its a big throw away thing. reassembly is reverse. I can do it without removing the side panels but I have done a few hundred of them also. good luck and next week we will discuss how-n-da-el do you get to dem term-O-stats. some jap engineer is still chuclking. I also have a trick to keep the mess down when chaning the oil filter. good luck and keep posting

          port side thermo is easy to access, once you remove the casting that holds the ISC assembly, I can do both in about 45 minutes.
          but like I said, if ya dont firmly bungee cord the muffs to the case and use full water pressure it wont pump.

            :Hey Rodbolt, just joined the forum. No experience at posting so patience please. Just bought a boat with twin 2003 225 Yamaha 4 strokesand all the maintenance records were available and work was done by a certified mechanic. However, I noticed that there was no maintenance done on the thermostats. What is your opinion on how often they should be replaced. I've run 2 strokes for 30 years and always did them every year and was really suprised that the mechanic did not do them ever.

              Hi Tim, welcome to iboats!

              According to the owners manual, the thermostats should be inspected/changed every 200hrs/year.

              For posting questions, it's always best to start a new thread. Provide your model number off the lower port bracket and as much detail as you can. We can only answer based on the info in front of us on the monitor.
