Merc 115 tilt trim question?

8 posts in this topic

I have and older (1979) Mercury 115 in line 6 with tilt and trim. When I push the tilt trim I just hear a click at the solenoid. Replaced the solenoid and still the click? Does anyone have any ideas for the mechanically challenged?

Thanks

My TT quit working on my 75 merc. I had the clicking but no lifting. I took the whole thing apart and found the pump had little pieces of plastic in the springs. The plastic was from the fill plug. Once everything was cleaned up and back together... worked great.

Good Luck,

NIck

With your onboard trim pump I'd say you have stuck brushes in the trim motor. Take the motor off and take it to an electric repair shop or to your marine dealer to fix. Or just buy an operating pump from someone and switch it out. That may be a cheaper alternative. I have one I'd sell reasonable and I'm sure Valv and others do also.

Thanks for the suggestions....I'll pull the electric motor and see if I can get it rebuilt.

Thanks again

Once you have the motor pulled ... check it to see if the shaft is turning in both directions when you engage tilt up and down. If it's still turning,,, it's something else.

pulled the electric motor out, and brought it to a repairman today. Great guy says he'll try and get it back in a day, so I can have the boat for the weekend. Now if I only remember where all the wires hook up to??????? Thanks for all the help here, it really is a fantastic site.

      Nice thats what I like to hear, was doing an annual trip to LOW with my buddies, but to be quite honest biggest fish I ever saw in 10 plus trips was 27 inches, I caught 3 bigger than that on the pond last year, and hey I can stay in Wright county where I live and catch 10 inch walleyes.. I don't make it up to that end of the lake ever, usually fish the south end..Bought a wheel house this year, would loke to set it up as base camp and hopefully be able to head up toward that end and do some exploring..And thanks for the input, thinking there is a lot of readers and not many writers on this site nowadays...

      Lake Marion is completely iced over. Hopefully we won't get much snow and be fishing soon.

      Silver lake in New Brighton is iced over. I'm going to count one week before checking thickness on my early ice spots. Could be fishing next Friday if all goes well.
