Well.....  anyone have the pleasure of "trying" to remove the tilt motor?  That lower bolt is a killer!  Will prob need to get a universal joint for my 1/4 ratchet to get in there!    Always somethin'!   -Bill Cedar Creek Lake, TX 1970 Evinrude Explorer - 155 Buick V6 - OMC Sterndrive ________________________________ From: BLDFW <bldfw@...> To: OMC Boats <omc-boats@...> Sent: Sunday, July 8, 2012 9:51 AM Subject: Tilt Motor problem conclusion Had a boating buddy come out to the lake yesterday to see what we could figure out on my tilt motor problem.  We picked up a new Multi Meter at Lowes and set about testing all of the circuits.  There was power right down to the motor plug but no action from the motor itself even when we bypassed everything running a wire direct from the battery to the plug itself.  Still nothing.  We came to the logical conclusion the motor just quit working.  Bad timing (when is it ever good timing??).  Soooo..... we missed boating on my Explorer this weekend.   Bummer.  I went on eBay and looked up tilt motors with the original part number (380361) and found this (one of many): In looking at the pics, it's exactly what is in the boat now so it obviously the motor is not original.  The end cap of the motor has the same smooth contours as the one in the pics and vice-versa.  That would explain the missing hand wheel.  Out of curiosity, I checked eBay for a hand wheel and surprisingly found one.  There would have to be a shaft coming out the end of the motor to attach the wheel to.  If my motor were original with the hand wheel, I'd have had it rebuilt just to keep a means of manually raising or lowering the outdrive. Oh well, you make due with what you have!  -Bill Cedar Creek Lake, TX 1970 Evinrude Explorer - 155 Buick V6 - OMC Sterndrive
