Help Tip: If you have a question that has not been answered to your satisfaction in the archives, it is always best to start a new thread of your own. By starting your own thread, you will receive the maximum number of views by forum members.

Below are some additional forum policies in hopes of all iboats members will follow, Thank you.

1. Please do not reply to old topics or hijack existing topics. Old topics of a technical nature are like a library book, Please do not write in them.

2. Old topics should be considered archives and used for reference only. Please do not reply to them.

3. Do not take over someone elseís topic (aka hijack) with your own question, even if it is similar. If you have a question that has not been covered to your satisfaction in the archives, it is always best to start a new topic of your own.

4. If you have a question for the original poster (OP) and the topic is over 30 days old, send the OP a PM, he may not even visit the forums any longer, or may not notice your question in the old topic.

5. By starting your own topic, you will receive the maximum number of views by forum helpers that may not even notice your question when itís posted at the end of someone elseís topic. And those answers will be specific to your particular issue.

6. Please do not post to topics that have been inactive for more than 3 months unless you are the original poster. We have very active forums and any topic that remains inactive for that long should be considered "dead". It is especially confusing when there is an entirely new question posted to an old topic.

7. Posting at the end of any topic is considered to be hijacking the original posters topic which in turn subjects the topic to be closed if it continues to happen thus not making it fair to the original poster in the future had for some reason he/she needed to return for additional information or provide an update of the problem solved which is always welcomed within a reasonable amount of time frame.

8. Please note that you should see a red banner pop up near the bottom of each inactive topic asking you not to reply to old topics. The Red banner will read: Please note this topic has been inactive for 90 days. For the best results, please start a new topic.

Thank you all in advance for doing your part in helping iboats run a smooth ship.

  • OMC control box for tilt trim or not!!!!!!!!!!

    Dear Sirs: Wow what a site i have visited for months gaining knowledge for repairs that i have made to the number of boats i have owned or still own. Much great information is found here. Heres my question. I recently purchased a 73 Starcraft with OMC controls and a 135 johnson outboard motor. It has trim tilt but not working as of yet. There is a black box with 2 relays in it that the guy i bought it from says is for the trim tilt unit,there is a pigtail that plugs into the omc contol handle but it seems as there may be some wiring missing out of the box such as main power in and trim motor leads to the trim unit itself. Is the black box just a control for bigger relays. I am headed to the Marina soon but hate looking like a fool when asking for parts that i have no clue as to what they are. A part number on the back of this box is 583106-4x-mx when searching it on the net i have found no matches. Any help would be greatly appreciated

          The unit motor only has two wires on it. Model # on unit refers to the motor that used to be a johnson J110TLCU which with the machining work the guy did now has a 135 mounted to it. But yes i only have 2 wires to the motor,and no the black box was not mounted to the boat anywhere but plugs into the controls pig tail. Maybe i need to volt check and ohm test to see if it even has good contact? Hope this info helps

            Ok the wiring diagram for your motor is posted below, Im not quite sure exactly which wiring section you are referring to. All that box is is a junction box, to house the solenoids and connections.
