Customer Question
I have just purchased...

I have just purchased a 1995 70hp Johnson for my boat and i am not completely certain how to connect the 3 trim tilt wires from the Control box to the outboard

Mechanic's Assistant: Sometimes boat issues seem like they'll be really complicated, but end up being easy to fix. The Marine Mechanic I'm going to connect you with knows all the tricks and shortcuts. Tell me a bit more about what's going on so the Marine Mechanic can help you best.

Behind the omc control handle is a black cable with 3 wires inside it. From looking on the internet I found out that these 3 wires go to the power trim motor on the outboard, but how exactly ?

Mechanic's Assistant: Is there anything else the Marine Mechanic should be aware of?

Noi dont think so
