1994 Merc 75 - tilt and trim quit...

Question

archer59

Tried to trim up the motor to get out of the driveway tonight and motor would not trim up. I can hear the tilt and trim motor running but nothing moves. I opened the manual release valve, pulled up the motor and tightened it up again. I checked the fluid level and seemed to be OK. I did notice the filler plug didn't have an O ring and didn't seam to seal very well. I was going to replace that and add the o ring. Anyone else have any ideas?

Thanks,

Nick

Maybe check the voltage coming off the battery. Might not be kicking out enough to power trim.

OK... I pulled the tilt and trim and checked it with a battery. The motor runs but there is no movement from the piston up or down. Still looking for ideas or who should I take this to to get fixed?

Thanks,

Nick

How long did you run the tilt/trim?

When I start mine up after a (long) time of non-use, it takes probably 20 seconds or so before the motor lifts.

I had the boat out last week. Never took that long to start lifting. I just ran it for 30 seconds and nothing. Do you think I need to change out all the O rings?

It's hard to say for sure, but IMO, probably not just an o-ring - but it could be.

If it's like most hydraulics, there are check valves and and other types of circuit elements. Could be something like a check valve stuck open or some other valve stuck in the wrong position. When that happens, often the flow bypasses to tank instead of going to the load.

      Sounds like the record of May 23 is looking safe for another year...

      Ice is going fast!  The sun is high and powerful, we're flirting with 70 degrees and the forecast looks promising. I'm feeling pretty confident there will be a lot more open water then most are expecting.

      There will certainly be some areas of open water to fish by the opener! Pike Bay ice is deteriorating fairly fast now. Other small shallow bays are probably not far behind. Cliff

      Almost time but maybe not quite... Although I did get the yak out of the backyard today, on to the trailer and up front to spend some time prepping it for time on the water soon.  Indeed it was fun getting out with you and the gang a few times this winter and looking forward to the next outings whenever they may be. WIll share what worked for me and look forward to reading some more info from others. Panfish is what I love going after and I had great fishing with gold jigs almost all winter. Did use a few other colors that worked also but that gold was hard to not use. Tear drop style tungsten in and 4 mm from Widowmaker Lures. Tried some from sportsmens direct also the last couple outings and liked them also. For plastics, the wishbone was good and also impulse mayflies and slug bugs. Tried and bought too many different things to try... LOL. Fished with shrimp for the first time ever this winter and that was a challenge and fun to try something different.  Started out with my good old ultralight gander mountain rods with the frabil titanium spring bobber and then bought a couple of the TUCR Inferno with the orange tip. I really like them for the 4mm and prefer the old ganders with a 3mm. Won a custom 32 inch power noodle from Kichler Custom Rods in Elk River at an event in Wisconsin and used it a few times yesterday. Very nice and looking forward to playing with it more. CGI inline reels still doing their job fine and I did grab one of the new Descent inlines and it worked sweet also. Nice that it now has a pop off spool instead of the gold screw off knob. 10 1/4 was my biggest gill and 14 for the crappie. Even went after catfish 3 times. Saw my first catfish tornado on the vex and iced a lot of fish after being taught how to use a bobber right for those super light biters. thx RickG   My highlight of the winter was getting a PB northern on a tip up up on Mille Lacs with stick in the mud. Fun City! My good old FL 18 is still working dandy and although I am tempted to upgrade, not sure if I will. Nills 6 inch saved my back from the hassles of the gas and when I put the Milwaukee on it life got even better. All in all a fantastic winter fishing with great guys and learning how to be a better fisherman.   Fish On!
