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.

  • 1998 four winns volvo 5.7 duo prop /Trim Tilt does not go either up nor down

    It worked two weeks ago. I charged the batteries and replaced the bilge pump now the trim tilt does not move at all. Use the switch on the throttle control and nothing no noise zero. Have hit the red 50amp breaker and the 10 amp reset breaker on the pump. Still nothing. Should I order a relay or what? How do you hotwire it to test pump?

    What's the full model number of your engine? Need all those letters after the 5.7

    Since this happened after replacing the batteries, I would suspect a wire got left off.

        With no noise at all, either direction, I would first start looking at the connection at the trim pump where the wires go to the trim switch.
        Make sure you have power at the fuse and you have a good ground (Use a meter)

        To jumper the motor to make sure it works, use the 2 wire connector at the pump motor. One terminal to battery positve, one to negative. To reverse direction, reverse the jumpers from positive to negative.

          So could you elaborate a bit more so I am confident I am jumping the motor the correct way. It appears that there are Green(Down) Blue (Up) and red and black on the pump unit where the 10 amp reset is. How do I proceed?

            I had the same problem with my trim just last week. I wired the trim motor directly to the battery and it created a direct short. When I removed the motor, and took it apart the bearing had gone bad causing the motor to trip the 50a breaker. I found an inexpensive replacement trim motor (without the pump) through Ebay at a place in TN called DB electrical. They shipped quick and it only took 5 minutes to install and everything works great.

              I too had this happen to me. I have a 95 210 wellcraft eclipse...it was in the switch inside the throttle...it just quit working. I ended up putting a 3-way switch in the panel next to the throttle and ran it that way. Every so often my trim would not go up but would go down...it ended up being the green connection wire needing to be reclamped with a new connector so it would fit better in the little black relay.

                  Thanks for all the support. So I jumped the pump and it is good. At least the engine is in the up position now. I the traced the wires back. Never found the spade fuse. Dont really believe there is one. Pulled all the connections apart and they seem fine. When at the throttle control I moved the wires where they enter from behind as an earlier post said their wire was chaffed by the throttle. Afterwards if you hit the tilt/trim it sounded like the pump clicked but nothing moved . After a few times no noises were made again. Any other suggestions.
