      Members Only Fluid Forum View   08/08/2017

      Fluid forum view allows members only to get right to the meat of this community; the topics. You can toggle between your preferred forum view just below to the left on the main forum entrance. You will see three icons. Try them out and see what you prefer.   Fluid view allows you, if you are a signed up member, to see the newest topic posts in either all forums (select none or all) or in just your favorite forums (select the ones you want to see when you come to Fishing Minnesota). It keeps and in real time with respect to Topic posts and lets YOU SELECT YOUR FAVORITE FORUMS. It can make things fun and easy. This is especially true for less experienced visitors raised on social media. If you, as a members want more specific topics, you can even select a single forum to view. Let us take a look at fluid view in action. We will then break it down and explain how it works in more detail.   The video shows the topic list and the forum filter box. As you can see, it is easy to change the topic list by changing the selected forums. This view replaces the traditional list of categories and forums.   Of course, members only can change the view to better suit your way of browsing.   You will notice a “grid” option. We have moved the grid forum theme setting into the main forum settings. This makes it an option for members only to choose. This screenshot also shows the removal of the forum breadcrumb in fluid view mode. Fluid view remembers your last forum selection so you don’t lose your place when you go back to the listing. The benefit of this feature is easy to see. It removes a potential barrier of entry for members only. It puts the spotlight on topics themselves, and not the hierarchical forum structure. You as a member will enjoy viewing many forums at once and switching between them without leaving the page. We hope that fluid view, the new functionality is an asset that you enjoy .

motor tilt/trim out

Recommended Posts

Ryan_V

When i winterized the boat last fall, everything operated in tip-top shape. so tonite I get to the lake for a contest at work, and try to drop the boat in. I went to put the motor down, nothing. not a peep out of it. I tried a couple fuses I know of and they are fine. after a while it started to "click" but no power to the tilt motor. any ideas, anyone, anyone??? My daughter would like to go fishing this weekend, so I'm hoping that it's an easy fix.

thanks!!!!

Does the motor run if you try to raise it? If it does it could be the solenoid. It could also be the controller switch.

If solenoids could be bad, you have 2 of them, up and down.

Also is it an outboard or is it an I/O ? IF it's an Inboard/Outboard you might have not connected wires with battery or they are not connected well.

sorry, should have mentioned that. it's an outboard, johnson 75 hp. i can only get it to "click" when I try to go up with it. down does nothing at all. I have power everywhere else, the motor will start and all lights work, just can't get the motor down to make her go!!!

Ok, try to tap lightly on T&T motor next to transom.

Also, check inside cowl for the solenoids, you might have to replace them, I believe besides boat dealer NAPA has them at much cheaper price.

thanks val, somehow I knew I'd count on you. if the tilt motor is bad, would you have any spare ones around there?? the quotes I'm getting from my local boat shops is around $1000 because they think the motor is shot, and I don't have that kind of $$. where are solenoids?? you said before there are 2. I see something under the back inside the boat that is under a black case with a fuse in it, is that one of them?? If I can't get it, is this something you'd look at if I come down?? also forgot to mention, my rig is a 1981 glastron boat with the johnson 75 hp. up until now, this thing has never seen the hands of a mechanic, has never had anything go wrong and I just took good care of it myself. my dad bought it off the showroom in 1981!!

I've had problems with my t/t several times and had excellent with the local electric motor guy who rebuilds alternators, etc.

He seems to be able to fix these exceptionally well and inexpensively.

See who is around.

$1000.00 for a tilt trim motor on an 81 johnson motor???? wow shocked.gif I had the same problem as you and I replaced the selanoid and the motor they were both shot in my 79 100hp glastron but I got mine online for $158.00 and the selanoid was $45.00 there is a manual release valve on the side so you can manualy move the motor up and down if you need the boat this weekend then fix it during the week I can give you the website for the t/t motor its boatpartstore d o.t c o.m

Ryan, wow that is way too expensive. Any electrical motor rebuilder can rebuild it for $ 60.00, I have one in Faribault that does a good job.

The relays are in the box as you described, they should be 2 black cubes with wires colored Blue, Green, Red (sometimes purple) going in and out. I don't have any motor or solenoid here, I would like to help you but it would be a waste of time at my place.

Here's post I made earlier this year in regard to a similar topic. The shape and location may differ, but the trouble shooting for the solenoids is the same:

      Well the weather was pretty crappy but the fish were biting...Had to sort through but kept some for dinner. Caught a variety today, eyes,jumbos,crappie and a few smallies... rigging on or next to rocks worked best for us.

      hummm, hadn't heard a thing?

      Good luck. Maybe we will see you Friday. I will let you know how things are looking by us as the weekend goes by.

      I still hope it's double!  I just went over the map with my brother and talked about our options.  We have enough places to go for sure.  It's always fun planning and talking about past hunts. I put out the question to the other two guys about staying in camp vs the house.  We'll see what they decide.  I hauled our "cabin" home from Ely today so we should have plenty of room if they wanna camp.

      Did a few off season projects waiting for Ice. - Underwater camera, Fish Finder, Wheel house mods and the latest converting a 2 cycle Jiffy Lite 90 to an ION battery auger. Got the auger off Craiglist for $10, Drill for $15. Second stage of gear box is a 5 to 1 reduction so got the auger blade to turn at about 250 RPM which I feel is an ideal speed. Gear reduction also doubled the torque of the motor drive. Planning to use the Dewalt 20V ION battery as I already have charger and now converting one of the 1.5 AH batteries to either 9 or 12 AH.  If anyone needs a mid 80's Jiffy Lite 90 motor and clutch PM me. Has great compression, never tried to start it.  Price somewhere between free and a gift. If you did a project this summer, would you care to share them? DJ ION Auger HB.mp4  << Click link for video

      You may want to consider #3 ; Rapala Jiggin Raps, or drop shoting. They both have been putting some nice size suspended slabs topside under some breezy conditions as of late. Fishing sure was downright epic the last week for all species. To bad it looks like "global warmering" is coming to an end for this year, was awesome while it lasted...... Those are some decent perch panman54. LOL!

      Pretty remote and flat back there. I haven't been on that exact shoreline but I bet you can pull a boat up there quite easily.

      I didnt hear how the second day went yet.  The long term average is 8% success up to 10% during the 2 deer era.  so 5.7% isnt bad for day 1.   Cooler weather will hopefully help us second weekenders. I havent seen much for rubs or scrapes here yet, should be starting any day.
