Nexi... on my 64 OMC there is a tilt motor on the right side of the engine facing rear...if you have the same setup...every spring i hear the dreaded sound of a solenoid clicking...

which means i have to pull the tilt motor out and clean it.... better straighten me out.... engine not tilting or leg not tilting? Dan..........

  I went ahead and bought a battery, Marine - Starting, and started testing things out on the dash. Blower checks out ok but the tilt isn't working. I can hear a clicking in the rear when I flip the switch, but the engine isn't tilting. From researching a bit it seems the tilt is controlled by a solenoid. How do I track down the problem? Is it possible that the solenoid is bad even though it is clicking? Bad contacts perhaps?

  Right now I'm waiting for a second set of hands so I can figure out where the solenoid is located.
