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.

  • Power trim motor/pump removal (150hp Mariner)

    I'm replacing the power trim motor/pump assembly on my 1985 Mariner 150hp V-6. I've found a used working unit and pulled mine. In order to pull the pump/motor and replace it, I know I need to remove the two bolts marked #20 in the attached diagram (I sure hope the picture came through!)...what else do I need to remove/loosen to get the motor & pump off?
    Thanks in advance,
    Bob

      Those two bolts should be all you need to remove to get the motor off. BEWARE however of small springs and steel balls falling out. The residual oil in the pump will tend to hold them in place until you're not looking. Its best to disassemble on a table covered with a white towel so when something falls you can find it easily. Also prepare some extra rags for a really messy job. Other than that you may find that the pump just needs a littlt tlc. These things aside from the motor are fairly simple and hard to kill. Most problems stem from the "Pilot Valve" which sometimes stick but can be brought back with some cleaning, new "O" ring and new transmission fluid.

        Thanks Whaler!

        Unfortunately the motor lost its seal somewhere along the line. I had no power this year when I went to get the boat running, even jumping it directly to a battery.

        When I pulled the motor a bunch of rusty water poured out and the insides looked like mush. Of course there is no aftermarket replacement motor made for this unit. You have to replace the pump too! So anyway, that's where I'm at. I wasn't sure if just pulling those two screws would do it. It didn't seem to be loose when I removed them and I didn't want to force it. I guess it might just need a little "coaxing".

          Sorry, I should have asked for clarification in my last post.

          Whaler said remoiving the two bolts "should be all you need to remove to get the motor off"...does that mean the MOTOR & PUMP assembly, or just the motor?
