I have a 1986 Evinrude Outboard, I am able to tilt the motor up only but will not tilt down. When operating the tilt switch on the remote lever I can hear the relay clicking so electrically seems fine

1986 Evinrude 70 will tilt up but will not tilt down...please help!

Make sure there is not a spring loaded locking lift latch engauged. If there is you will see a little movement and then the motor will sound slower. If there is no movement and the motor runs the same speed with no change you are low on hydraulic tilt and trim fluid.

Please take a moment and rate my answer............ Thanks

SOURCE: on my 150 yamaha four srtoke outboard. the tilt

That is a classic sign of a saltwater spray or water condensation buidup issue. Any time you are dealing with a powerplant issue on a boat, the prudent thing is to take ti to a mechanic. A vessel underway at sea without power represents a serious danger and can become a real emergency very quickly.

While I still believe it is almost certainly an issue with water that has mades its way into the controls I would not attempt to repair this problem without first running it by your local mechanic.

Good luck.

SOURCE: free download for repair manual for an Evinrude

My outboard motor is old and used.When I went to run it for the first time everything worked except when I went to put it in forward gear the boat went slowly but when I gave it more gas the engine just reved up but the boat wasn't going any faster.The motor is 40hp gale model.I think because it is bought used the prop is not the right one and it seems like it's slipping as I go faster.
I would appreciate any feedback on this problem.

Thax, Don

How do i replace the water pump in a 2005 150 hp evinrude outboard motor


Take the cowling off. Also drop the foot. There wil be a stainless linkage rod that runs the length of the motor that you will have undo to drop the foot. The water impeller will be inside a stainless casing that you will have to disassemble.

Evinrude 225hp will not power tilt batteries OK manual release will turn but still not able to tilt motor?


Check trim tilt switch (if that's ok ) Try the trim / tilt relay inside the engine cover.
Could also be limit switch above the trim motor up further under the motor.
My bet is switch or relay
Good luck
