Trim tilt motor broken in down position

2 posts in this topic

last summer the port TT motor went and I need to get to it too change out the elec. pump. Any ideas on how to get the motor up so i can access the pump? The manual release valve is frozen. I tried impact, and lots of PB blaster trying to get it too budge. I resorted to drilling a hol,e in the end of the manual release to relieve the pressure but after doing so I can only get the motor up 10-15 degrees which is not enough to gain access to the tt motor. Help!! Tuna season is around the corner

Motor is 1998 Johnson J200 TXECM

Got it fixed. Ended up jacking the lower unit up with car jack and drilling hole in frozen manual release valve to relieve the pressure. Important to remember, cover over the manual release valve with some sealent so corrosion does not seize up valve.
