I need some help. I just bought a 86 Tourny TX Trcker with a 1978 70 hp Johnson with T&T. The old boat is in real good shape and the motor runs like a machine. The tilt and trim unit will raise the motor but will not let the motor down. This seems to be a direct wire T&T switch. The T&T motor has three wires coming from it. One is red. One is black. One is blue. The wiring coming from the switch located in the throttle handle has five wires. Two of the five wires does not go into the wiring connector. A red wire and a black wire. The three wires in the connector are a green with white stripe, blue with white stripe, and a smaller gauge wire that is brown. Logic tells me the red wire in this bunch is connected to the positive terminal and the black to the negative terminal. Now for the rest of the story. Someone had cut the wires coming from the T&T motor and wired the connector back using wire nuts. The terminals in the connector block look a little rough to me. I know the motor works in both directions because I jumped the blue wire direct and the motor either went up or down, and then jumped the red wire from the motor and the motor went the other direction. I checked the switch with a multi meter and it shows the switch to be feeding current through the green/white wire with the switch pushed in either the up or down position. The blue/white wire shows current when the switch is pushed in the other directin. (is that as clear as mud?) Bottom line is I can raise and lower the motor by jumping between the red and blue wire coming from the T&T motor and I can lower the motor with the connectors connected using the switch on the throttle. What do I want to know? How is this thing supposed to be wired? If the throttle switech is bad, how do I get it out? I need help!!!!
