Question about Light Outboard Motor Boat Bass Fishing Saltwater Base
1990 40 hp outboard evinrude not locking in up or down position ther is a cable broke for the cable tilt assist the motor comes out of the water when put in reverse. is that cable is what locks motor in the down position and the down position and could the cable been broken due to the assist unit that is hydraulic the motor will move up and down so i dont think the cylinder is ba d because i have heard if it was bad it wouldnt allow the motor to go up or down and if this cable is what locks the motor in down position and up position. do you know of a web site that will show me how to install that cable and where it hooks up at the top of the controls that engages or moves this cable to lock the motor in place up or down i will give you the model number it is te-40-elesr 1993 bass tracker 17 ft tx tournament.
Try to pull the cable and see the nob at the cylinder if functioning. If yes try to pull up the motor without pulling the cable. If the motor cannot move up, that's mean the cylinder is good and the problem is the cable. The cable connected to nob at the cylinder and the other is connected to the hook.

If the gear lever is loose,it's the gear connection rod that you disconnect to do a g/box drop.If its not loose, drop the g/box off the leg and the first thing you find might be the problem.A loose bolt,a jammed shifter.It will probably be a connection problem than a g/box problemHope this helps

First find the fuse box, replace any blown or incorrectly rated fuses. Inspect electrical connections at the switch and the tilt ram, repair if necessary and coat with lanolin for long protection. If it turns out to be a fuse you mite be wise to inspect the wiring for any green or black areas this can mean shorts.
I hope its easy to fix, Timo.
