I recently picked up a little FW boat project it's a 1990 17 pro deep Vee Tracker. One of it's problems is the motr will not tilt. It does not have power trim. The previous owner says it has not worked for years. He thinks there is a cable that pulls a valve release that went to a plastic lever. I need to get in there to fix it. Any help?

I have the same boat/motor. This cable system was a constant problem so I removed it.
I used a slotted piece of stainless to hold the hydraulic cylinder in the open position so I could lift the motor up and down. I use a piece of stainless cable and a snap to go around the motor to connect it to the mounting bracket so it does not tilt up in reverse. The cable is small enough to act as a breakaway in the event I hit a submerged object.
