I have a Tohatsu M8B 2 stroke
hanging off the back of my 26' Islander. The engine
starts and runs pretty well. The problem is that the tilt lever will not release so I can tilt the engine
up to get the prop out of the water
. The transom swing mount almost gets it up and out all the way, but the prop blades will be dragging once we get it under sail. The engine is mounted too low for me to get eye level with it. I am thinking it might be just the usual corrosion
, but I was told last night that the reverse lock might be causing it. I can post a pic of the setup once I get over to the marina if I can figure out how to do it on a my cell phone
Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.
