"My power tilt is completely shot and replacements are not available and a rebuild would run around $300-$400 so I was wondering if the motor just had a manual lock on it so I could put it up for transport. I see that it has a bracket /bolt combo where the motor slides back in forth in, but I didnt see anyway to lock it up."

"If just for transport, why not use one of these?

"Chris, I've seen the motor's for around $200. There are electric motor shops that should be able to repair/rebuild for about $100 or less depending if the brush block is warped or destroyed."
