until last year. last year tohatsu came out with their own 75,80,115 lineup. they are really good engines too.

This I did not know. Are they 4 strokes? Heard the did away with the TLDI engine which makes me sad luckily I have one and it will probably out live me.

yes, all 4 strokes.. there won't be any more 2 strokes built in the US as production engines. the TLDI was a cool engine. there are a few replacement power heads
still available too.

the new 75-115 engines from tohatsu are identical engines... similar to how the SHO engines work... just different ecu programming. they even have tuned exhaust.
really neat lil engines.

Took the electric trim motor off today. Took it apart, lots of carbon dust inside. I cleaned it well. Reset the brushes, and put it together. The electric motor works well now, as intended.

The problem now was when I took the electric motor off, I introduced air to the system. I've gone through several cycles of bleed/add, it still has a squeak which wasn't there before. But it working smooth all the way up and down. I figure I'll just bleed/add over the next few trips to the lake and hopefully it's fixed.

I appreciate the help.
