Thanks for reply Wizarddude.
I don't think it is the switches because the pump runs in both directions. do you know if the pump runs in reverse or is there a valve to reverse the direction.this has me going, hate to take it to shop they always charge big bucks:--->
I read your post the other day & was having trouble getting my account activated. I wanted to tell you about what you already found out. Glad you figured it out w/out the extra $ spent. Also in the future let off the pressure by loosening the bottem fill hole for the cylinder to get the piston to drop the motor. 1 other thing to check when having problems is the sending switch on the bottem of the cylinder where the wire enters the cylinder. There is a small ( 7/16 " ) nutt you have to loosen & the switch itself comes out. Just becareful because most are plastic & will strip or break off. use a metter to check for power to & from the switch itself. Hope you won't have any more problems BUT if you do drop me an email & I might be able to help
To the ? you asked about adding power trim/tilt. You could go the route mentioned w/ the power lift jack plate spending anywhere from $200-$800+ depending on horsepower. OR you could find a local shop that works on OB's & ask if they have scrap pieces & find a set up that will match what you have & hook it up. Its not very difficult & I've seen it done pretty reasonable. I know for a fact Ed's in Ashland would have all the parts you would need. All you have to do is talk to the " right " person there. Good luck !!
