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.

    Iboats sells these rebuild kits. Just have to figure out which one you have. Can be a great value compared to $400 new.

    I would pull the whole assembly, take it apart, clean it up and regrease, replace the orings and seals.

    Here's a thread I started about mine.

    Do you have a bracket to support the outdrive while towing? If not, get one.

    Let us know how it goes.

        I bought a used one on Ebay for $150.00. Seemed to be a lot of them available. Beats the price for a new one.

          Thanks everyone...I will mess with it today and let everyone know what I find. I do have a bbracket while towing so that's good...so if the drive goes down but lags on the way up do u think its probably the motor worn out or does the part where the motor is attached to need to be opened up and cleaned an greased? It doesn't grind or anything and goes down really smooth and fast just really slow on the way up like the battery is drained.

            How many wires are going to your tilt motor?

            I wouldn't waste my time rebuilding anyting other than a two wire.

            A new two wire motor can be had for $150. Arco or Sierra.

                Take it to your local starter/alternator repair shop, they may be able to rebuild it. Just depends on how bad yours really is. Will be just like a new one if you have a good shop in your area. And a lot cheaper than 150 bucks.

                  ok took the motor off cleaned the brushes on the inside...everything looked good...sprayed the ends with silcone spray...then not sure if this will hurt anything but sprayed some in the hole where the motor attatches too...and put it back together and what a difference...goes up and down pretty fast goes down really fast and goes up way faster then usual...noticed i replied earlier that it had 2 wires but it actually has 3 ....but ya fixed my problem atleast for now.
