how do you bleed out air in trim/tilt motor


Guest

Question

I seem to be having similar problems as tjwierz with my trim/motor. Motor will not trim up or down but the motor sounds like its trying to work but it makes clicking noises. Any suggestions? I tried topping of the fluids.... Thanks

Does the motor only "click" when you press switch? If so they are possibly the solenoids, not too expensive at all.

Which motor ?

Year will be helpful too.
Does it click either going up or down, or just 1 way. Usually there are 2 solenoids for it, 1 for each way, if one works and other doesn't you can switch them around to find out if it's actually solenoid problem.

Its a 1990 60HP Johnson. What are solenoids and where the heck are they? :-)

Also...where do they wires from the tilt/trim motor go? Where do they end up?

This may sound dumb, but it just may be stuck from sitting all winter... Take a small hammer and tap(NOT HIT) the trim moter while holding down the trim botton.. You may be able to get it going again?

This worked for a friend of mine... and the mechanic told him to do it!

If anything sounds dumb here...its me. This is the first time Ive had to look into trim/tilt problems. I dont know why it would just stop working after sitting idle for 6 months.

Looks like I have to resort to smacking it around a little bit?

When tapping on the motor, try to tap either end...not the center. The center holds the magnets and every once in while even a slight tap might damage the magnets or windings.

Is the battery dead? Connections good?
The click you hear is probably the solenoid closing its contacts.

Solenoid is a heavy duty switch thats turned on and off buy a smaller switch.

Look for a fuse between the solenoid and the tilt motor.
Its aslo possible the brushes in the motor are stuck. Thats the reason for tapping the motor.

Im guessing the connections are ok...since the pistons will move some and it sounds like the normal whirring sound?

Are there separate battery connections for the tilt/trim motor that should be hooked to the main battery?

The 2, 3 inch long pistons will move out like they normally used too. However, the motor actually wont go up or down. And the pistons go back in EXTREMELY slow. When I try to trim it down...it makes the loud clicking noises...but the motor wont move.

The whole motor wont engage and trim up or down. The motor for the tilt/trim sounds like its trying to go. The pistons will come out, but wont go back in.

wizkid, I'm getting confused. I thought you said all you get is a clinking sound. Now you said the pistons move and the tilt motor makes a whirling sound?

The tilt motor gets its power from a wiring terminal attached to the power head.

Did yo put any fluid in it. it sound like it has to much fluid in it.or is air locked.open the filler cap just a little and trim it down tolet the air out till some fluid comes out.then tight it back up.
you can use power steering fluid for this it cheeper and is the same thing.
good fishin

sounds like its time to do some trouble shoting. If possible unhook trim cylinders from motor. Then try to move motor up and down if it moves freely you no that pivot point for motor is not rusted stuck. Next have someone watch trim cylinders while you run them in and out. It sounds like trims cyliders not working properly. Without extra weight of motor on cylinders try to run them in and out to free them up.

Problem is FIXED!!! Took it in today and within 30 minutes they had it resolved. They said the Manual Release Valve was loose. Tightened that up and I was good to go. Thanks for the help guys. Time to hit the water. :-)

      In today's markets, there are many different liquidity provision. These providers are often financial institutions and banks, and many of them act as an intermediary between buyers and sellers. These institutions tend to send buy and sell orders at prices reflecting the current state of the market and the risk associated with an asset. Liquidity providers also serve the interests of investors by maintaining tight spreads and providing reliable market liquidity. In addition, they efficiently deploy capital to serve the needs of investors.

      It is strange that the developers did not think of such a nuance. In any case, you need to place an ad on the labor exchange, where you will find employees for the company and they will work with you, only you will need to conduct a preliminary interview

      Creating an application for such a hotel would be the best option. Place your ad on the job exchange on the Internet, I know a few of these, then you can find developers for yourself and the work will go much easier

      You won’t have to search for a long time, rather you will need to choose from the options offered. Look on the Internet for all the available options, such developers usually have their own sites that have all the information you need

      I am sure that if you search in the google search engine you will find a company that is dedicated to that, but to be honest I have not much idea, I never planted the idea of something like that, from my ignorance it is very complicated, but maybe someone who have more notion of it can guide you and can even recommend a company with a good reputation that is dedicated exclusively to it, good luck with all that

      Haven't really targeted geese, think we've got 3 Ross geese a blue goose and one Canada goose. We focus more on ducks, especially when we can get them in the field. Greater and lesser Canada geese around but they are spread out tons of feeds but no large feeds

      Finally got the choirs done. Roofed a shed and built a woodshed. Most done by myself. Now's time to go fishing before the deer season.  Found some crappies tonight, caught 11, missed at least that many. West end. Skunked again, how'd you do, saw you heading out?

      The three on top of the pile are geese. Smurfy. 😉   +1 on the decent shooting!  Thanks for the pics.  This was one post that got me to log back in to spam central.   Going dark again….
