there are like 11 versions of the yamaha trim and tilt systems for the US market.
you MUST use the correct tool for YOUR application or odds are high someone will cut the cap out.
not only is that expensive there are not many of us old timers that can acually do it.
30 years ago parts were very expensive and shop labor was 25-35/hr.
now parts are very expensive and shop labor rates start at 85/hr.
its just to simple to PROPERLY use the CORRECT tool for YOUR application.

The factory tool is a 4-pin setup that slips over the piston rod. Yea, it's expensive but it makes the job so much easier. I did 2-rams this weekend in about 30-min. I'll probably change seals in other motor next year. The parts are cheap and the unit works so much better. I bet getting all the old oil out helps, mine was real dirty. Purrs now...
