I've just bought a 1993 Wahoo 1750 Offshore. I'm told that the 100hp Mercury motor is original. On my dash I have an up/down switch and the same at the transom. The associate hardware under the helm has been disconnected. I suspect this is to tilt the motor up out of the water.....just want to confirm. There is a black box that has wires going in and out. Black wire I assume is negative, Red wire I assume is positive, then two more other wire which I assume go to the tilt motor. Are my assumptions correct?
I'd post a picture but I don't see a link to do it.

Sounds like the tilt trim switches to me. You might Try a YouTube search for wiring help.

That's what I'm thinking.....I've got trim on my controls so I'm taking it all out. Gonna put an electronic gas gage in its place at the helm. Not sure what I'll replace it with yet at the stern.
