    Tilt locked up in the up position. Solenoids just click when switch is toggled either direction. What gives ?
    System was salvaged from an inboard intact and mounted inboard as a complete unit wiring harness and all. Only modification was to lengthen hydraulic lines and by-pass old tilt motor. Worked absolutely perfect until today. So far have only checked for loose wire connections......suspect solenoid failure on both solenoids......possibly from age. Somebody mentioned a possible hydrostatic hydraulic lock up needing to be bled off. Any ideas ??? :sad2:

    Switch the relays and then see if it works. No need to bleed anything.

    If it works then, you've got a faulty relay.
