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.

  • fast track tilt/trim

    I've got a perfectly good working fast track unit laying around my house. My question is can I adapt it to work on my motor? My original tilt/trim is removed b/c I couldn't find any parts. To me it looks like the only issue would be that I'd need to change the 2 brackets that bolt the motor to the transom which I should be able to do by removing the nuts on the steering tube correct? Or do I have to change mid-sections? Here's some pics of what I've got.

    My other question is it possible to make a mercury tilt/trim pump and motor to work on a johnson or evinrude? Other than changing all the fittings to adapt properly, what else would keep it from working?

    You might post this in the Johnson/evinrude section. You are asking if the triple clamp and transom bracket from a newer motor will fit your motor (along with the fastrac unit).

      Yeah, that's what I'm after. I'm just trying to get an idea before I spend anymore money trying to adapt this tilt/trim to the motor. I think it can be done without changing midsections but I'm sure somebody has tried it and wanted to see what the results were. Could a moderator please move it to the appropriate section if need be. Thanks.

        Alright, well it seems that I'm in the right section since it didn't get moved. Anyways, I've got a few days off and would like to get an idea if this is even possible and if it is, what's involved. If somebody has tried it and it didn't work, pleas chime in.
