Default Outdrive help

Gents,
1999 3000scr with bravo II's. My port drive is hit/ miss whether or not it will lift/raise. It will always go down with no problems. When I am trying to raise it I can hear a click. If I mess with it for 5 monies or so it will eventually kick in. All fluids are good.

Words of wisdom appreciated

Thanks

Marty

It's the electric solenoid/relay on the pump assembly. I had the same issue. I believe the raise solenoid is the top one (there are two per side) which is slightly easier to replace than the lower solenoid. They're like $12 each on ebay...

Yep up trim soleniod. About $25 each.

I would replace both the up and down while you have it apart as there is a buss bar that goes across both of them.

Agree with the above, replace both.

But, DISCONNECT your batteries first. There is a live hot in there that is easy hit and arc.

On your boat the port pump is much easier to get to than the starboard, but I know I have to take the power steering pump off the port engine to squeeze back in there.

It is much easier to work on the solenoids if you unscrew the whole bracket from the bulkhead and pull it towards you some. Depending on which brackets you have, the flange bends in or out. If it is in, you may want to forget about that idea, as you can't get to the back screws. But, worth looking at.
