How do I check my tilt&trim fluid in my 225 yamha out board

Tilt the motor all the way up and put on the tilt lock. The resorvoir on the trim unit will have a 17mm or 18mm head on the plug. Pull the plug and fill with fluid until it runs out of the hole. Reinstall plug and your done. DO NOT over tighten the plug b/c it will pull the theads out of the reservoir.

Check fluid in tilt &trim in a 225 yahama out boarb motor

Usually, if you have trim tilt issues its because the seals on your trim ram(s) are failing and youre losing fluid. Prolonged issues with leaking seals make it more worth while to replace the unit, rather than spending the money to fix seals and whatever else has since corroded or failed. That being said, there is a plug, typically a phillips head or flat head, at the bottom of the trim pump, that is where you can drain or fill the fluid. VERY IMPORTANT!!! Have the motor trimmed completely up and have the trim locks holding motor up before opening plug, you can easily kill yourself or others if that motor were to lower very suddenly. Also, this procedure is best followed step by step with the manual. Skipping a step will leave air in the system and could potentially allow the motor to kick up while running, or not stay trimmed up. Unless mechanically inclined, take to a mechanic, it will save you money, time and grief. Hope this helps, feel free to ask more about this if needed.

How should fluid heads be stored?

Alisa: With all 'video tripod heads'...., regardless if the are the original 'true' fluid heads (that actually used a liquid (oil) to achieve 'fluid' type movements) or a modern professional 'fluid' head (that actually uses a clutch mechanism like a cars transmission) or a fluid effect head like the Manfrotto #501HDV (which used nylon discs sandwiching a ball bearing race)...., always store with the pan and tilt mechanisms unlocked!!!! This means the camera platform should be positioned in the 'rest' position (not tilted forward or backwards), also ensure that any counterbalance mechanism is released so as to eliminate strain on the internal mechanisms!!!!
If you remember to do this and don't overload the head..., you will extend the life of your gear significantly

Soleusair 45 pint dehumidifier won't drain through hose

We have a Soleus Air 30 pint that initially would not drain through the hose that we attached and dropped down the sump drain. After reading here, I tried tilting it back about a quarter inch and that didn't fix the problem. Then I tilted it forward a quarter inch (I put a couple pieces of cardboard under the back wheels) and it started draining properly. It is doing a marvelous job of dehumidifying the house now!

Head does tilt smoothly on 516. How do I get it smooth? Eric

Not fully understanding your question. You stated that the "head does tilt smoothly on 516. How do I get it smooth". What are you asking exactly? How to smooth out the pan as well, or how to make it tilt even smoother?

I'm missing a ''tilt'' set screw on my Craftsman 10 inch table saw

I couldn't find that model Sears saw to confirm, but if yours is like mine (113.298720), then the handle on the right causes the saw trunion to swivel left and right. And there is a locking hex-head bolt on the front of the saw up close to the underside of the table. This bolt locks the trunion in place keeping it from swivelling.
Take a look at the following diagram part 22 is the shaft that tilts the blade Part 30 is the bolt that locks it in place part 29 is the handle part 28 is the spring that holds the handle on the locking bolt

How to service a tilt/trim on a 50 hp yamaha outboard. I think the fluid is low as the trim will leak back down after raising the engine.

To check the fluid level, tilt the motor up and engage the tilt lock lever. Open the bolt on top of the tilt/trim reservoir. The fluid should be even with the bottom of the bolt hole. If not add some fluid. When you put the bolt back in, run the trim up and down a few times. That should purge any air out of the system. Always be on the lookout for any leaking hoses or fittings. Hope this helped and best wishes.
