I have a yamaha 225 hp. Went fishing last night and while running full throttle, the motor lost power and died. Tried to start back and nothing but a click. Battery fully charged and even tried jumping it. Pulled plugs this morning and 1 plug covered with metal shavings. Even found some in exhaust. The motor is definitely seized up. I have no idea what caused it.. I need it fixed asap. I need a name and phone # of a good engine rebuilder. I know it can't be fixed in a day buy I don't want it to take a year.. I'm already going to miss the night cba and it's killing me. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks

Here is an old post that might help. I also heard that there is a guy in east Ridge off of mack smith that is good on yamaha's. Can't remember his name but maybe someone will chime in and help.

Was it a 4 or 2 stroke? Did you run ring free in the engine? I know, I'm not helping you get it fixed but maybe can help figure out why. so it doesn't happen again or to someone else.

It's a 2 stroke. Never acted up at all. Ran perfect til it just stopped. Really strange.

I've heard it said that a two stroke engine is a bomb waiting to explode. Pulling back on the throttle some is about the only way to prolong the explosion.

A big reason why I don't run much over 40 mph 99 percent of the time. I would be reduced to trolling motor only trash if mine popped.

Several years ago my Evinrude did the same. Detonated a cylinder. Was about three months out of warranty. No help from Evinrude. Repairs were expensive about half the cost of a new engine with very limited warranty. Bought a new motor instead.
