Normally the belt should be slipping around the drum if the pilot is disengaged,sometimes the belt does not slip smooth due to the conditio of the belt or dirt,grease or oil on the drum inside ,take the unit apart ,check for belt condition,exessive belt tension ,if necessary belt tension can be adjusted on the rear of the backplate.

Mine did the same thing yesterday - I had left the clutch lever engaged when I last left the boat and the belt had adhered itself to the drum. The belt then skips over the drive cog as you turn the wheel instead of the belt slipping round the drum. I gently turned the wheel lock to lock and the belt unattached itself from the drum and all was well. In future I will not use the clutch as a wheel lock when the boat is in its pen and will also perhaps release the clutch from time to time when using the pilot.

ST6001 when press auto it engages but within seconds turns hard to port and stays engaged until we turn off the power at A/P switch.

Try reversing the motor leads on the CPU. If this doesn't work you will have to check the rudder feedback to see if it is operating properly. The easiest way to check this is to steer the wheel from port to starboard extremely slowly and make sure the readout on the control head has a smooth transition when you turn the wheel.

When engaging autopilot on my twin Yamaha outboards, the engines atrt turning back and forth about 5 inches each way.What could be causing this.

Sounds like it is reacting too quickly. It is a good idea to do the system calibration again followed by the autolearn and see if that helps. Start with that.

1992 150hp merc black max and hydraulics won't work, sounds like a sick animal.

On the bottom of the trim/tilt cylinder there is a big white slotted head screw usually located on the right side. Turn that out about 3 turns. Have someone help you manually lift the engine and while it is up tighten that screw back up and it should stay. From there you can check your trim lines and check the Cylinder for leaks. Also check to make sure that there is no water in the system. Once the engine is all the way up just engage the tilt lock and you will be able to do anything that you need to without fear of the engine bleeding back down.

1996 force outboard motor

Hello vickurzawski, You have a bad bendix. This is mounted on the starter to engage the starter to the flywheel. Check with a local marine shop or auto parts store for a new or used one. Disconnect the battery, remove the starter from the engine, replace the bendix on the starter. Connect a jumper cable to the starter to test operation before bolting back to engine. Make notes on what wires went where before disconnecting.
