The sender is a plastic flip up fitting located at the bottom of the transom. They have two positions. Down and in the steam below the bottom of the water for reading the speed. Up to protect when trailering. Check to see if it is up. I never heard of a unit that is attached to the engine itself.

I would check your fuel lines from the tank all the way to the fuel pump. It seems that you might have a pinched line somewhere. You can also bleed the fuel rail with the schrader valve on the end of the rail. If that wont fix it then you probably have a weak fuel pump.

is it carbureted or fuel injected? are your warning horns working? if it iscarbureted then a few easy test can be done to find out. if its fuel injected then its a little harder but not impossible.(1) check compression. without the year model I'm giving you a average numbers. all cylinders need to be over 100 lbs and equal each other within 5 lbs.(2) check spark. use a spark gap tester all cylinders should jump a half inch gap. if you have good compression and good spark fuel is the problem nine times out of ten. clean fuel lines replace primer bulb and replace all fuel filters. Yamaha has a gravity filter under the engine coul. take it to the lake if no improvement. clean carbs. same test to be and fuel system service used of fuel injected engines. if no improvement in engine preformance then you will have to take it to a dealer to test with computer.

is you propeller bent? a dent the size of a quarter will cause a shake. If not that means your engine is misfiring. here are the troubleshooting test and tool list you need to find out. Tools(1) A compression gauge (2) a spark gap tester.(3) A Clymer service manual for your engine. (you can purchase from your local outboard dealer. I know all these are expensive but if your going to be a outboard tech you will always need them. Troubleshooting (1) check compression. without the year model I'm giving you a average numbers. Look at your Clymer manual. all cylinders need to be over 100 lbs and equal each other within 5 lbs.(2) check spark. use a spark gap tester all cylinders should jump a half inch gap. if you have good compression and good spark, fuel is the problem nine times out of ten.Ethanol gas is proven to stay stable in fuel systems for 30 days in 90 + degree heat. Drain gas tank,clean fuel lines replace primer bulb and replace all fuel filters. Yamaha has a gravity filter under engine coul clean it. Finally replace spark plugs, I know spark plugs probably don't look bad but this is a outboard. Fresh spark plugs means less resistance for the ignition system. The ignition system is week compared to automotive. Test drive boat, if the problem is still there then there is further steps to take. Again I don't know the year model so I guessing its fuel injected. Pull out your clymer manual. what is great about the Clymer Manual for Novice techs is it gives detailed info on your outboard. Troubleshooting tips and teaches you how your outboard works.
