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 threads or hijack existing threads. Old threads of a technical nature are like a library book, Please do not write in them.

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

3. Do not take over someone elseís thread (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 thread of your own.

4. If you have a question for the original poster (OP) and the thread 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 thread.

5. By starting your own thread, 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 thread. And those answers will be specific to your particular issue.

6. Please do not post to threads that have been inactive for more than 3 months unless you are the original poster. We have very active forums and any thread 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 thread.

7. Posting at the end of any thread is considered to be hijacking the original posters thread which in turn subjects the thread 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 thread asking you not to reply to old threads. The Red banner will read: Please note this thread has been inactive for 90 days. For the best results, please start a new thread.

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

  • Replacing Pressure Relief Valve

    i have a yamaha 200 txrt. after reading this forum i determined my symptom of over temp alarm at idle was the pressure relief valve. while replacing i pushed the grommet into the "engine". i'm a novice and i want o avoid taking cover off. any ideas?

    Re: Replacing Pressure Relief Valve

    hahahahah
    I am glad I NEVER done that
    use a bent coat hanger wire and fish it out.
    it can only drop an inch or so.
    cover removal is a LAST LAST LAST resort if its a saltwater motor.
    I fish a couple out every year that others push in. I use a wire hook to aid when I insert them so if they go in I pull them back out.
    no tech questions by PM, they wont get answered.
    you have to be trusted by the people that you lie to .

        thanks for the reply rod. when I purchased the new parts the parts guy said that yamaha changed the design of the valve. It's shorter and rounded off at one end. 95 Yamaha 200TXRT. Does that ring a bell with you?

          yep, but unless the original valve is missing I never replace the valve, just carefully clean the pocket and install a new grommet.

            Rod thanks for your help, the hanger worked after 2 hours of probing around. Your trick, when installing the new grommet saved my butt too. I pushed the new one in when installing but luckily took your advice and had the hanger in place to catch it. If you wouldnt mind can you describe to me how that "valve" works. It doesn't make mechanical sense to me.

              as the block fills with water under pressure from the pump we need to maintain several PSI in the block at all times, this will vary between 2PSI and about 20PSI from idle to WOT. water under pressure has a higher boiling point and can keep all voids filled.
              so to keep from over pressuring the relief valves opens slightly and dumps excess water into the exhaust stream.
              if it sticks open or leaks much at low speed the block wont fill and the hot horn sounds in a few minutes of low speeds.
              thats why inspection of the valve/grommet is a 200 hour OR yearly check.

                  Does Suzuki use a similar pressure relief valve system?

                  thanks
