    Just to be clear, the dust people are the ones talking about the expensive toy they call a tool []. My plan is circular saw for outer skin and die grinder to cut out boxes - can't get circular saw to make those cuts.

    And...it is going to happen, baring no typical bad luck Chuck trips to the hospital, I will update with pics Saturday and Sunday night. I am not scared of the destruction and dust part, I am intimidated as hell by the rebuild, but that is why I have you guys [][].

            Chuck, I had mine out in less than a day so it really isn't a big deal if you follow the advice given above. I used an angle grinder and had the fiberglass cut out in less than an hour. My transom was in bad shape so the wood came out very easily. I spent some time removing wood with chisels before resorting to the chainsaw. The chainsaw is the ticket and the looks you'll get form your neighbors and wife will be priceless. Using a chainsaw on your boat is intimdating but I found out pretty quickly that it is basicly foolproof.

                Chuck

                Please take a lot of pictures and detail what you purchase for the project. Next season I will be doing my transom and I am looking forward to reading and learning from your replacement.

                Wish I was closer. I would help you do it just to learn.

                Good luck

                    Not the day I was hoping for. My help that was going to be here early today with lift backed out late Friday, and I was left scrambling for lift and all day sitter turned into about 3 hrs (which a good portion was used getting another lift and blades). I was solo derigging and pulling the motor, but ran into a problem putting on stand and went and got a neighbor. After trying to figure out for awhile how it was goint to work, call it lack of experience or common sense [B)], but I did not know motor had to be tilted to use stand. I fought for too long trying to free the manual release for the tilt and gave up, so this is how the motor currently sits...



                    and this is the transom [B)]...



                    Not the kind of progress I'd hopped for, but at least I have all day tomorrow. I tried setting motor stand on blocks, but that didn't look like it was going to work either. If anyone has an idea of how to get on stand or how to release manual trim and tilt motor please let me know.

                      can you not just jump a hot to the trim/tilt solenoid and do it that way? It may be a lot more complicated than that on a late model o/b but I had to do that on my 91 mercs to isolate a problem with the switch.

                        That is how you do it. Put the ground on the block.

                          Maybe Artie or Dave M. can give my the Evinrude DI for dummies instructions? On my old OMC motor I could tell you what and where things are, but honestly this motor intimidates me.

                            Disconnect the plug that runs to the trim motor and jumper it with any old battery. It's under the cowl near the starter and you may need to make jumpers to make contact with the terminals. Once hooked to the battery, the tilt/trim motor is either going to go up or down. If it is not the direction you want, switch the polarity and it will go the opposite way.

                            The wires are not polarity sensitive and trimming up send the current one way, and trimming down sends it the opposite. Do not worry about ground since the trim motor ground is done through the relays.

                            It's a no brainer - but I'm having trouble explaining it, does this make sense?

                              Thanks Dave. I think I follow, but won't know for sure until I uncover and look at tomorrow. I guess to figure out which plug was the tilt motor and can match to wires on tilt switch at console? Is there a way to run a jumper to the switch on the side of the motor?

                                The tilt is the plug with only 2 pins. The rest have a different number. As I said today, with the plugs you cant plug anything in wrong.
