E-TEC / Tilt trim NMEA 2000
« Last post by admin on May 13, 2018, 06:51:50 PM »
If you are trying to read your engines tilt and trim level via a NMEA 2K device then you must have the following.

1- EVDIAGS software to calibrate the range of the sensor.
2- a 47 ohn 5w(Minimum) resistor connected from the purple wire to the Wht/Tan wire on the analog gauge.

The analog gauge should be removed.

WARNING, do not apply 12V direct to the Wht/Tan wire this may damage the ECU.
E-TEC / Tilt trim indicator not working - TIP
« Last post by admin on May 13, 2018, 06:48:59 PM »
The tilt trim sensor has a loaded spring that can get gummed up overtime. lift the motor all the way up. The sensor is on the port side. carefully move the sensor arm up and down and make sure it has free motion. If it does not, remove the two bolts holding it in place. Spray some CRC silicone and continue to work it back and forth until the spring starts snapping it back into palce. Used some compressed air to clean any debri stuck in the part.

Hope this helps someone.

Boat Maintenance and Repair / TIP: How to loosen 5200 to remove those stubborn parts
« Last post by admin on April 01, 2018, 06:57:15 AM »
Had to remove some hatches the other day and let me tell you someone went 3M 5200 CRAZY. They make some agent that will work but it's very expensive. So I tried a trick I learned a while back to remove Windows COA stickers from computers. Heat! It's important that you only apply enough heat as to not damage the surface. I use a variable heat gun from Home Depot Wagner Furno 750 Heat Gun. The surface was powder coated aluminum. I wasn't to concerned about damaging the powder coated since the hatches where getting resurfaced. 750-800 degrees (definitely want to use less heat for plastic or other non-metallic surfaces) for a couple of seconds was all I needed to loosen the glue and pry a corner off. I worked my way around and got them off fairly easily.

Hope this helps you DIYers
