Yamaha has aknowledged that the 350 has a problem. . Figured they where passed the guinee pig stage by now. I've heard only positives on the engines until now. The upgrade consist of a new flywheel, a new plastic cover that is vented and a water pressure sensor. I know of quite a few 350's that have never experienced the issue and only one that has above. Some on the post mentioned broken connecting rods and other damage caused by excessive vibration.
The allotted time for service is 1. I am not bashing Mercury. The cure is an updated wheel and a new vented plastic internal cover to assist in shedding heat. If you prefer traditional service manuals Seloc also offers a full line of printed engine repair and maintenence guides. How many seasons have these engines been on boats.

In some motors the rubber delaminates and allows the engine to suffer an out of balance condition that can be catastrophic. It has been pretty ugly experience with these engines.

They called me yesterday customer service to tell me they are replacing all flywheels because of my incident and others.
So please make sure your email address is correct. The F350C is also compatible with our Command Link Plus® and Command Link® control platforms. I believe Yamaha said problems with only 1%. The issue is related to the rubber portion of the flywheel that assists in the balance. The water pressure sensor is replaced due to some isolated failures related to water intrusion. They called me personally yesterday because of the problems I've had to let me know this.
Mercury and Yamaha both make great products and there is no need for bashing from either side. I happened to look that over and it seems like a lot of biased based bashing of Yamaha. Even the most novice mechanic can also easily follow the step-by-step guides which are made simple by the illustrations and drawings. They are doing something about it. You're exactly right, it is a balancer which throws everything out of balance thus the break. I happened to look that over and it seems like a lot of biased based bashing of Yamaha.
Mine will be done this coming week. The dual exhaust helps the F350C more easily purge the exhaust for greater combustion efficiency and power. The new unit fixes that. By the way I also have had to replace a lower unit and is now in the shop again. Yamaha says a fix is on the way but its not available yet. Of course if you already have had all the above happen, like I have then a power head is the fix.
Just goes to prove an old rule of mine tho. . I thought they started late 2006 on 2007 models? And no, one engine will nort get it up on plane. Yamaha will be sending a letter to all current 350 owners on Feb 18th informing of a service upgrade. I have 2 on a boat I just bought sitting on blocks. Yamaha is being very proactive in upgrading everyone.
