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.

I have a etec 60 hp 2008 and it developed an issue where the engin would not develop enough power to rev out or put the boat on the plan. I have change the fuel filter and put in new plugs. Still no

Did you run it out of fuel for the down times? 30,60 90 days of down time. If not, first plan on buying a gasket set for the carb. Pull the carb and clean it. Inside and out, soak it in carb cleaner and blow out all ports/holes. Some times you have to manually clean the ports. I use a acetline torch tip cleaner to do carbs.

What could cause this?

Hi, It's almost certainly your thermostat not closing, and letting coolant flow round the system while it is still cold. It should close until the motor warms up and then open when cooling is required. Depending on your motor, a new one won't be very expensive and is a simple job to replace.
