damaged release valve

damaged release valve

I raised the engine with the tilt switch. It will now not go back down I can hear the motor running when I push the switch, but the engine remains raised as if it is locked somehow. Frustratingly the release valve seems damaged so I cannot lower it that way.Any advice, much appreciated.

Tilt stuck NEW
by: Will-dog

Had the same issue a few weeks ago. Engine had been in the upright position for a few weeks while we were away. We just sprayed WD-40 on the ramrods that retract as the engine tilts down. It went down within a few minutes. Good luck!
