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.

What should the tilt be set at for a 12 ft pontoon with a 15 hp motor


Bill,
The tilt is dependent on weight in the boat, location of people, etc. The majority of people set it by feel. For a pontoon with low horsepower a general setting is set it so the propeller is horizontal to the floats (pontoons). Since you only have a 15hp on it I would set it this way. That way your propeller is pushing water straight back and all power is utilized in moving the boat and not wasted on raising or lowering the bow/front of the boat under power which is what your tilt up or down does. Raise it up your bow goes up. Tilt it down and your bow goes down.

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.

We have a 1998 yamaha v4 2 strock 115 engine. we can not get the motor to go down. even if we try to drop it manually


lock lever not down ? does it move up and down at all , the tilt tube could be siezed ,both trim solinoides working ? try standing on the engine gearbox as you trim down or manually release ! if then goes down try injecting the grease nipples with petrol via a grease gun that uses tubes like tooth paste and this will soak the corrosion ! then grease and see if free and if not enough then lift the engine off and remove the tilt tube and clean the sleeves and grease and refit !

Want to replace the trim/tilt motors on my 1995 Yamaha TXRT 200hp outboards... do I have to remove the motors from the boat?


no. a unmodified transom bracket may need to be moved not removed. Since the tilt motor is out you will need to manually lift the engine. you can see the picture diagram at www.yamaha-motor.com. click on outboard motors,parts and service, view parts catalog. find your year make and model by following steps listed at top. select power trim and tilt assembly. in the picture you will see the location of the Manuel release valve on the starboard side. turn the Manuel release valve then lift the engine. tie it up or use a stand to keep it up,do not use the tilt lock. with the engine in full tilt position, you can see the motor. some brackets are modified were you can remove the motor without moving the transom bracket. If unmodified you'll need to follow these steps. (1) lower the engine back down.the steering arm needs to be removed from the steering cable and swung forward. do not remove steering arm from engine. on the starboard side of the engine you will see the steering cable going into the steering cable tube. (2)a 1 1/6 nut secures the cable to that tube remove it and slide cable out do not remove it.(3) lift engine again and secure it. your about to remove the motor mount bolt so make sure you secure the motor completely (4)remove upper and lower transom to bracket bolts remove bolts on the port side only.(5) you will see three bolt that go through the transom bracket to the trim and tilt assembly. remove them.(6) if all bolts are removed you will be able to slide the port transom bracket to the left out of the way(7) remove tilt/trim motor.

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.
