    No tilt on 280? Leg-gctid816210

    Recently bought a Conquest 32 think it's got 280 legs tilt doesn't work hear motor turning but legs don't move. Looking for advice on what could be the cause, downloaded the manual but can't see the diagrams too well on my phone. They are currently down so it's usable for now but would like to get this issue resolved.

    Thanks in advance.

    What year Conquest? 1985 and up for 290s with power trim, and that means a different response than the 280s.

      It's a 79, the survey said 290's but the guy moored next to it says they are 280's so I'm going to work with that.

        79s are more than likely 280s. 290s would have a digital square trim gauge in your gauge cluster and a toggle/trailer button control on the dash. 280s would have tilt-only with little red LED lights, one per drive.

        You have a problem with the lift motor, not the trim motor. Google Volvo Penta lift mechanism, 280 drive.

          The standard 280 drive is equipped with an electrical/mechanical "lift out" device only.

          If this is what you have, you know doubt have a broken clutch component!

            Can that unit be removed while in the water as I wasn't planning for a haul out right now

              on my 2850 I did remove while in the water. Pretty hairy as you need a calm day with calm water so it doesn't allow water in the tilt hole. Doable? yes, would I do it again? yes.
