Non-identical Twins

By: Grid Michal

QuestionMy 22-footer has twin 150 Suzuki four-strokes. I’ve had them about a year and have been delighted. However, the port engine has decided to cease upward tilt about halfway. The starboard engine does what it’s asked to do. Both go down fine. A friend came over and swapped all trim/tilt components between the two, but the problem still exists. Any help?

AnswerThose engines have adjustable tilt-limiting switches mounted on the steering tube. Roll the knurled knob toward the boat and the engine will tilt higher. It’s designed so, with adjustment, the rapid tilt speed combined with nearly horizontal tilt attitude won’t damage the boat.
