Sorry for the attachments but I havent figured out the pic thing yet.

New boat, lots of problems. The tilt motor didnt work and I didnt really worry about it until I saw the price of the little thing...! So I decided to try and fix it. The wires were broke and looked like someone already tried to patch it. After spraying it down with oil the screws came out okay and realized the wires are fixed inside and had to be clear ( no plastic ) for the cap to come off. I had to drill out the insulator and was hoping I wasnt going to hit anything. Once I got it out it came apart pretty easy. The wires were soldered so I removed the old wire out of the terminals. Then removed 3/16" off the insulator of the two wires I had to put back in. Crimped them in and realized the plastic held the two wires in position since they had no insulation. I used gasket sealer to glue the wires in away from any grounding spots. Doesnt look pretty but it works!

I don't see where anyone would complain about getting her done and no worries after all this...

and look, you saved the environment from hazardous waste by not dumping the old for new... :kidding

Nascarians has got a lot of work ahead of him and plenty of money to be spent on bigger things Im sure. I think he is doing the right thing by making what he can work again. Not sure how long the repair will last but time will tell. If he can get her going for the season and do it cheaply (As long as it doesnt leave you stranded) then I think its the way to go. I'd hate to buy a boat and spend all summer fixing it to perfect specs only to have to wait till the following year to use it. Get the must do's done now properly and try to tough it out till next winter for the smaller crap-o-la projects. Just my .02. :D
