Hydraulics not working?

8 posts in this topic

Posting this for a friend who says his motor will not raise or lower as the hydraulics don't appear to be working. He says it's an 80's model 100 horse motor. He didn't know the brand off the top of his head. It makes the sound like it should when moving but doesn't budge. I know this is very generic information but I don't know anything about this stuff. Any ideas??

What more do you need to know. That's why I'm asking, because I don't know anything about it. Tell me what I need to ask him and I can go from there.

Okay I'll start with a couple of the obvious problems I've hit only because opener is coming soon.

Do you have enough juice in the battery? If I don't have enough juice the motor won't move.

Also make sure that you have hydaulic fluid in the lines. One year I developed a leak and there wasn't enough fluid left to push the motor either.

Well, the trick to get good replies on internet questions is to provide the most information to help pinpoint the solution.

Ask your friend the exact year and model and brand of motor, the exact symptoms, what has he done to try to fix it, anybody has done anything, etc, and we will be able to help you out.

Some specific questions to ask:

1) Can you hear the trim and tilt pump running, or is it not making any noise at all?

2) Is it making noise in only one direction?

3) Will the engine crank over?

4) Did he have any issues last year?

You mentioned "it makes the sound like...."--have him check the fluid reservoir.

    • New ABC / WaPo Poll Shows Drop In Trump Favorability Courtesy Of Aggressive "Oversamples" Jan 17, 2017 3:42 PM   In the month leading up to the election on November 8th, we repeatedly demonstrated how the mainstream media polls from the likes of ABC/Washington Post, CNN and Reuters repeatedly manipulated their poll samples to engineer their desired results, namely a large Hillary Clinton lead (see "New Podesta Email Exposes Playbook For Rigging Polls Through 'Oversamples'" and "ABC/Wapo Effectively Admit To Poll Tampering As Hillary's "Lead" Shrinks To 2-Points").  In fact, just 16 days prior to the election an ABC/Wapo poll showed a 12-point lead for Hillary, a result that obviously turned out to be embarrassingly wrong for the pollsters. But, proving they still got it, ABC/Washington Post and CNN are out with a pair of polls on Trump's favorability this morning that sport some of the most egregious "oversamples" we've seen.  The ABC/Wapo poll showed an 8-point sampling margin for Democrats with only 23% of the results taken from Republicans...   ...while the CNN poll showed a similar 8-point advantage for Democrats with only 24% of respondents identifying as Republicans.
