engine tilt seized.

does anyone know an easy way to get this going again, it does get better after i have lifted it a few times, i think the grease in one side of the hinge has gone solid because i can not pump anymore in through the grease nipple! could this also have anything to do with the cylinder that supports the tilt and trim? this is a manual tilt and trim Evinrude 50 vro so is also heavy when it's working fine.

thank you.

Heat the tilt tube to soften any old grease then pump more in while it's warm.

It's possible the gas assisted tilt is fubar too.

Had a discussion with my Merc. mechanic on this type of problem last week, with both tilt and steering tubes. His comment was "hit it hard and fast" meaning use an oxy/acet. torch so the ally heats up faster than the steel spindle thereby opening up the clearance and then pump grease. You will have to repaint. .

yeah i've heard that to, i pulled the steering tube out and put a load of WD40 in all joints and it seems to be a little better, just wish it wasn't s stupid price to get power tilt and trim added.
