I don't know if its true on their bigger engines, but apparently some Suzuki engines were delivered with fuses that were too small/under-rated/wrong size. If it's the trim fuse that's blown, check the right size was fitted. That was the prob with our club boat - but that was with a Suz 40.

Hope this helps...

Just tried it - won't start either - can hear something whirring when the ignition is on(fuel pump or similar) but that is all - no clicks - nothing.

Whirring or buzzing slightly?

The buzzing noise is what came from my mariner when I had a dodgy battery connection. When the cowl was on it could be mistaken for a whine but I think it was the trim solenoid trying to work with insufficient power.

you mentioned in another thread that your battery was flat even though it was 140 amps, but in this thread you have not mentioned this.

is this the cause of your problems?

might help folks save some time researching this if you know the problem and resolution

I didn't mention it because I changed the battery......

get someone to check the power trim solinoid, might not have one but should do
as for not cranking over could be the starter motor could be knackered, the drive dog that turns the engine over might be jammed or seased, other vise the starter motor might be buggered.
take it to your local workshop or dealer and get them to check it out!!!
hope this helps

I don't think the starter motor / starter solenoid and the power tilt solenoid will have packed up simultaneously on a new(ish) engine.
More likely to be a problem with the cabling between the battery and the motor, but I assume you've checked all these connections?

Codders - Doesn't help with the solving the problem of why the electrics are upset, but if you need to get it all the way out of the water you'll probably find a hydraulic bleed nut/screw near the cylinder. Giving that a quarter turn (or more as necessary) should allow you to move the hydraulic fluid within the system and get it the last bit of the way up. All you need then is the gang of beefy lads to lift the bloody thing the last bit of the way .

Don't forget to shut the valve off once in place or gravity will do its thing

Had a similar problem on my yammy - but stuck in the down position - once I found where the bleed valve was it came up a treat.
