If the tilt and trim is making some creeking/cracking noises, put a bunch of marine grease on the 2 ball bearings that the hydraulic poles rest on. Depending on the year and model they can be and the end of the hydraulic poles or on the part of the outboard mounting bracket. If the trim is making squeeling noises, put some downward pressure on it while your trying to trim it up. If you can slow down the trim or even stop it then you may have to rebuld or replace the power TNT.

I would also grease the motor pivot location (should be a grease zerk on the mounting bracket that mounts your motor to the transom.

      You can use the clam plate with the k-drill, they make an adapter. The K-drill recommends a minimum of 725 or 750 for torque, so you almost have to get the higher end drills. The newer Clam has the gear box which will double your torque with a 2:1 gear ratio. You can pick up the conversion box for $70. They had a deal on those at the show last weekend, as well as the K-drill. The K-drill cuts through the ice like butter, if you get the clam plate and conversion box, you should be able to still get double the torque then. So Clam plate $70, plus the Clam conversion box ($70), and add in the K-drill ($215), and I already have a drill. Brings the total up to $355. But don't have to purchase gas or propane or, light weight, no fumes. I will let everyone know how it works out.
