ok hoping for some advice! Today gave the engine and boat a quick squirt with the hose to remove all the cobwebs
Refitted the battery after charging and tried to tilt the engine up. Plenty of electrickery but the engine didnt move. Funny thought I ?? worked a few days ago.
Inspecting the power tilt bit in the engine bracket saw fluid squirting out a small hole below what im guessing is the filler/level cap.
Stupid questions now... dont laugh... should there be a plug/screw in this hole? Is it a drain hole? Could it have been dislodged with the hosing?
Its a 96 Mercury 60, waiting for the mechanic to come and service it but dont want to give him more work to do.
Theres a pipe on the transom side of the outboard leg that has a plugged end, whats that??
