Yamaha Year Models
This Yamaha outboard year model chart will only work for Asia Pacific distributed engines. If you have a Yamaha engine that has been bought in from America or Europe direct the parts will still be the same but your model and year model code will be different. You will have to use your own knowledge of your engine to select the appropriate year. For Asia Pacific engines your year model code is found on the bottom right hand corner of your serial number decal. It will be a single letter as per the diagram below which can then be matched to the chart. Note: The letters will repeat in the below chart so use your judgement as to the correct year, ie: the engine in the picture is a 2003 model and not a 1982 model. 1973 1974 1975 1976 1977 1978 1979 1980 1981 1982 Z Y X W V U T S R 1983 1984 1985 1986 1987 1988 1989 1990 1991 1992 P L K J H G F D C 1993 1994 1995 1996 1997 1998 1999 2000 2001 2002 A Z Y X W V U T S R 2003 2004 2005 2006 2007 2008 2009 2010 2011 2012 Q P N K J H G F D C 2013 2014 B A

Take off the motor cover and check the linkage to ensure the throttle return spring is not hung up on the choke linkage.

I have always had great results with my Yamaha and Kawasaki 2-stroke motors by setting the timing at 32' advanced. The motor will be easy to start and run much better coming out of the hole ( bottom end ). They set them up from the factory so they run rich and protect your motor. But if you want it to run like it is capable of running, you gotta bump the timing. "UPDATE">>>Im sorry i thought i was responding to ignition timing not the trim motor.

Go to a boat engine repair shop. They may be able to come up with one.

There is an intake pipe on the water pump in the lower unit. Is this the one you are refering to? The water enters the lower unit through side screens and takes it directly into the pump. The pump impeller is driven directly by the driveshaft and is an easy replacement. I have the manual if you need the pages scanned.
