I had the same problem with my 75hp Mariner and it was my trim motor that went bad. Seems like the seals leak after awhile and it fritzes out the motor. Mine went slow for a year or so before not working at all. You first would want to get a Chilton (sp?)manual for your motor at the library if you want to do it yourself. Then check to make sure power is going to the trim motor. You can use a trailer light tester and follow the wires. Here is where a manual is a good idea so you're testing the right wires. To make a long story short, I needed to buy a new trim motor (5 bills) and install it. I could not fix my old one. Luckily this happened first thing this year and I was able to fix it before the ice left. Good luck.

Check the pump to see if the bleeder valve has loosened up on you. My merc. did the same thing to me, I took it in and was ready to pay big bucks to get it fixed. Much to my surprise, my mechanic called me within a couple hours and said I could come and get it. Over time, all the bouncing around had loosened the thumb screw that you would open to manually lift your motor.

Your tilt and trim fluid could be low. Not sure how to go about checking it because I have never had that problem yet but this could be the problem with yours. When the tilt and trim goes through all the fluid it stops short because it has no more fluid to pump into the cylinders. I would image in time this could also ruin your pump. Good luck!

    • Good question, why didn't they find any more?  Did those two infected deer parachute in?  Were they dropped by a helicopter?  I find it fascinating they could get as far as Lanesboro and they only find two out of thousands.  Like I said, they're bad at conspiracy.    Policing the borders?  How about a billboard, a radio ad, or a twitter campaign?  How about having the highway patrol pull over anyone with hooves or antlers sticking outta their truck box or laying on a flatbed coming across the border on the interstate?    My wealth and land ownership shouldn't disqualify me from questioning the DNR.  It used to be a staple of a free country to question your government.  Somehow now it's more important to kneel before the all knowing DNR and take whatever they want to shove in our mouths?  If this is real science and a real mitigation effort, let's have a discussion about it.  If the DNR wants to stop this spread, why are they not welcoming with open arms feedback like mine when it comes to import enforcement, and an effective PR campaign?  Cause guess what fella, lots of deer got hauled home from all kinds of places infected with CWD by uninformed folks that are going to cut up those critters and throw the brains and spinal cords out in the woods at home.    So yeah, this is either a giant hoax, or the DNR has no idea what the hell they're doing. 
    • I just checked on the fans that I bought, there 4.7 inchs sq and 1.25 thick. I thought they were 5 inch thick but I was wrong. They are 110v and I think I will put one inside on the bottom plate and see how it works. And I like where you have your fishingstar.
    • Slowly getting the outside buttoned up 
    • Yea I had that idea too 
    • I saw three or four huts in the little wet area in the lake vadnais area just off country road F.   But they would probably get upset if you set traps there...    right next to the new path that goes south along the east side of the lake. 
    • In the olden days, pigs were fed garbage.  Trichinosis was a problem.  Then laws were passed so any garbage fed to pigs had to be cooked first.  Problem went away.   According to CDC there hasn't been a case of trichinosis except from eating wild game like bear meat for many years.  
    • From a quick google search it looks like waveinn.com or the bay of e might be your best bets, if you don't want to buy from shimano.
    • Does anyone know of a place you can get spare Shimano Sedona spools?? I run braid in the summer and don't want to run it on the ice.
