Have an older boat, 1990's, with an Evinrude 90hp w/ power trim/tilt. Just getting it ready for a vacation trip and having trouble with the power trim/tilt.
Didn't work at all at first, switch on the engine and remote console, neither worked but heard clicking noises. Playing around it would move up a bit, then stop. Never got it to move down at all. Switched out one new relay, was only on new one left at the store I went to, but that did nothing better, moved a bit then stopped. Ran direct connection from power trim/tilt motor to battery, removing all other accessories, still the same. I am assuming it is the motor.
Does that sound legit, or is there more troubleshooting I can do? How much work is it to replace the power trim/tilt motor?
Thanks for any info you can provide.
