  • Can the tilt trim motor be rebuilt? volvo penta 270 stern drive

    my 74 glastron with a volvo penta aq130c motor with a 270 stern drive laggs when raising the stern...goes down fast but when i goto raise it it laggs and eventually makes it to the full raised position. can a person remove this tilt motor and grease it or something? i know it's an old boat and the tilt motor sounds fine it just drags when i raise it. help please......

    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.

              i only have 2 wires it's an older boat but not sure if i want to rebuild it or just buy a new motor...not sure if it's the motor lagging or the bearings and stuff under the motor? not sure if i just need to clean it up and grease it or just leave it till it completely goes out and wont lift the outdrive any longer....what does everyone think"?

                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.
