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 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.

  • wiring diagram for a 3 wire tilt trim pump

    I actually have a 1990 CMC PL-65 jack plate that uses the same motor (a prestolite HYB 5001) and need to get a diagram, or a pre made wiring harness. The original Johnson number is a 172850 or 173596. I have the replacement motor threw API, # PT 114N. I need a way to get this wired up correctly.
    Any help is greatly appreceated!

    Re: wiring diagram for a 3 wire tilt trim pump

    The maxrules.com web site has several wiring diaghrams. The older PTT systems used 3 wire motors. The wires were for Up(blue), Down(Green) and Ground(Black). Solenoids or heavy switches applied +12VDC to the Blue ire for up or +12VDC to the green wire for down.

    The newer PTT motors use 2 wire motors and Double throw relays. If you put +12VDC on the blue wire and grounded the green wire, the PTT mortor spins in the up direction. if you put +12VDC on the green wire and ground the blue wire, the PTT motor spins in the down direction.

      Re: wiring diagram for a 3 wire tilt trim pump

      Thanks for the info! This motor is a "wire wound field motor" with the 3 wires on the pump. CMC did fax me a way to wire it with solenoids, but im wondering about wiring it with a high voltage type switch. Do you or anyone know of a way to do that?
      Thanks in advance.

        You mean a high amperage switch. Certainly it can be done, if you can find a switch that is rated for 35Amps or so(just a guess about the necessary amperage). You will need to run heavy wire (6Ga or 8Ga) from the battery to the switch and then back to the blue and green wires of the PTT motor.

            here is a simplified drawing i drew up for building a 2 wire tilt circuit without using the factory OMC harness

                Guess I should have labeled it.

                Explanation:
                12v DC is connected to the normally open outputs of each relay

                The normally closed contacts are connected to ground

                12v DC is connected to the input of a center off two position momentary on switch (Mom-off-Mom)

                The blue and green wires from the motor are connected to the common contact of the relays.
                When the switch is moved left (down) 12 v DC is applied to the relay coil of the down relay through the green/white wire. The relay energizes applying 12v DC to the green wire of the motor and driving it in the down direction

                When the switch is moved right (up) 12 v DC is applied to the relay coil of the up relay through the blue/white wire. The relay energizes applying 12v DC to the blue wire of the motor and driving it in the up direction
