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

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

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

3. Do not take over someone elseís thread (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 thread of your own.

4. If you have a question for the original poster (OP) and the thread 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 thread.

5. By starting your own thread, 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 thread. And those answers will be specific to your particular issue.

6. Please do not post to threads that have been inactive for more than 3 months unless you are the original poster. We have very active forums and any thread 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 thread.

7. Posting at the end of any thread is considered to be hijacking the original posters thread which in turn subjects the thread 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 thread asking you not to reply to old threads. The Red banner will read: Please note this thread has been inactive for 90 days. For the best results, please start a new thread.

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

    It looks like the plug on the box has three wires, Blue/white it down, Green/white is up and the red/white is the positive lead.

          It takes more power to raise the motor which is why the 1979/1980 PT&T only has one solenoid to raise the motor; blue and white is up/trim out and not down/trim in which is green and white.

              It apears my trim motor has two wires like the 82 thru 90 evinrudes even though the model# says 85999R which can be a 79-80 model from what i,ve seen.
              so might need a wiring diagram for that model?

                OK, do you have either a relay box or solenoid box for your PT&T?

                If so could you describe what is inside as relays or solenoids?

                      I seen your diagram PT&T and thats the way I hooked it up but it powers one way but not the other way. i better start at the begining. The PT&T worked when I got it the man had wires everwhere. After fixing the leaks I removed some wires that the diagram didn't have. the motor wasdn't good so I had it rebuilt. I checked the motor to see if it was working and it is. But when I connect the wires to the junction box (where the silenoid is) the motor work one way. the wires are connected just like the diagram. I had to put a three way switch. 1 is up 2 is off 3 is down.

                      Oh I forgot the engine starter quit working.


                      I found on another site forum a two solenoid hook up. Can I switch my single solenoid to a two solenoid system?
