i have a '76 75hp Evinrude. the wiring shorted on the power tilt & trim motor. i replaced the brushes and the ends on wires, but i dont know which wire goes where. i have a three wire cable which has a red,blue and a green wire. i know 1 goes to the brush and the other 2 to the fields, but which ones? i would appreciate any help possible. thanks
I have a question related to this topic. I have a 1976 85hp Johnson with a single piston tilt & trim unit. I replaced a badly corroded solenoid that controls the tilt & trim unit. I hoped this would cure a problem with the unit since I purchased the boat. The power unit will lower the motor, but when I hit the up button, nothing happend. No clicking, no humming, nothing. A friend told me to check the solenoid, replace it if it looked bad. However, this did not help. Still has no up. I saw on another post here that the blue & white wire is the UP and the green & white wire is the DOWN. The blue & white wire is hooked up on the solenoid, but the green and white wire is not, and has no provisions for hooking to it. I was told by the previous owner that the tilt worked and I have not changed any of the wiring that is on the boat.Any ideas?
