There should be a hydraulic bypass valve screw on the tilt assembly. Usually a large slotted screw driver is needed to loosen the valve. The motor can now be lifted manually, but not with ease.

Hello moose10 & caligirl41. I only know of electric tilts controlling a hydraulic pump and valves. There outboards and inboard motors with tilts controled by both, a mechanical manual lift as a backup in some cases. I suggest you check the level in your reservoir of hydraulic fluid. This chamber may or may not be available with the boat in the water. Watch for leaks. The other possibility is electrical. Check for the sound of the pump pumping when activating, if no sound check your switch, wiring and electrical power to the controls.I wish you the best in your indevor.

Flush the motor with fresh water, drain and refill drive gear with fresh oil , the same with the motor, remove spark plugs inject 10 ml of engine oil into each cylinder, turn engine over by hand so cylinder walls are coated, refit plugs. I then like to spray every thing WD 40. Remove the battery if you have a trickle charger connect it.

I just got a new boat this summer and I live in Seattle, where I will use my boat year round. I have been told that I should winterize the motor so it doesn't freeze in the lower temperatures. What should...


I used to live in the Chicago area. We definitely had winter (below zero).I went thru extensive winterization for the inboards and stern drives. I fogged outboards and put Sta-bil in the gas. I also ran the gas out of the carbs or drained them but the boats would sit unused for 6 months. Does the boat stay in the water? If on a trailer, lower the motor so it is in the run (trim down) and the water will run out. If you tilt it up after this for storage, cover the gear case as it can fill with rain water and freeze.

55hp suzuki wont get up and go


I had the exact same problem. The problem was that there was a piece of dirt in main jet of the bottom carb. The engine would rev up aton fast idle but would not produce enough power to plane the boat due to the lack of fuel flowing through the carb. Cleaned all three carbs. Motor ran like a champ.
