??Question about my outboard??

  1. I have a little 6 horse and when I tilt it up, it does not stay. I was told there was a crutch(??) to keep the motor tilted up> :confused:

    I hope someone can decipher my ignorance;)
  2. Kevsworld There should be a little lever on the side of the motor that you can flip up and down that holds the motor up. Tight lines Fishguy

    if it is an evinrude the lever may be on the front of the motor down low. it may be stuck in the tilt position.
  4. Ill check it out...I know it has lock and release lever, that locks it on the bar...when I release it, it will tilt, but not stay. I'll check it out this afternoon.

    Thanks for the replies, and patience!
  5. I've got a 8hp merc on the right side there is a button that locks & unlocks if I tilt up with the lock on it will not stay I have to unlock it then lock it again once tilted.
