    Default 1997 Nissan 18hp Tilt Issue

    Need some advice on how to tilt Nissan 1997 18hp 2 stroke. I have looked at the manual and have searched old threads but nothing really covers this issue. The tilt lever will not move up or down at all, is there a trick to it or what.


    Thanks in advance.

    Year of manufacture is irrelevant. Model/serial is what you need to describe the motor. Assuming it's an 18D or E. The reverse lock lever operates a wire reverse lock link:

    Tanks for the reply. Its 18E, I tried with the lever in reverse and it still will not budge. No corrosion and I did not see anything broken either. Just seems like the lever is seized up?

    It only tilts in Forward.
