    Default If you have trim and tilt you

    If you have trim and tilt you wont have a reverse lock. If the motor has internal trim and tilt there will be a release screw which you can access through the side of the transom bracket. It turns anti clockwise and undo it about one turn then try to lift the engine.

    Default Re: If you have trim and tilt you

    Was this ever figured out? I have a follow up. I have like an 80 or 81 Johnson Seahorse V4 90hp outboard and the power tilt only now workes in the down direction. This just happened out of nowhere. When I try to raise it I hear the relay clicking, but nothing happens. Each direction has it's own relay, so I swapped relays thinking the contacts might be bad and still only the down direction works, so I know the relays are good. The problem seems to be from the relay box on back to the motor. I cannot lift the motor even when opening the reservoir plug on the pump reservoir. The two lift pistons areattached the the motor housing through holes with locknuts on the otherside which go onto the threaded ends of the lift pistons. I took off those nuts figuring when we lifted the motor manually that the pistons would slide right out of the holes and we could lift the motor. No can do. It's almost as if there's some kind of mechanical thing holding us back because we almost lifted the tail of the boat right off the trailer and the motor did not budge a millimeter when we tried to lift it. Any idea? I can't identify the exact model number because I can't lift the motor to see the model tag on the mounting bracket. All around this really sucks. Any help is appreciated!

    Had exactly the same problem with my 115 ocean runner. It was stuck down fast and would not budge an inch, no matter how hard I pulled on it.What I discovered by accident I might say is that the motor needs a bit of presure pulling it upwards as you release the manual screw. I put a car jack between my motor leg and my trailer and just wound out a bit of presure and then released the screw, and bingo it popped free and I just lifted the motor manually easy as. Now I just have to figure out why the damn thing will go down and not up.
