Do you not have a bleed valve you can loosen for manual operation?

Do NOT be under motor when you loosen it, that shit be heavy YO'

what year or model and SN of engine, we can look for diagrams or a manual.

mine has a manual bleed, as well as manual electric controls on the side of engine (great for installing transom saver)
The motor is a 2003 Mercury 75hp ELPTO S/N 0T663731 --The link you provided looks to be the manual I need. Thanks for your help!

I feel like I ain't no pansy, but you're right... 305 lbs be a heavy bag o' falling shit! :scared

what I did was crack it real quick and quickly and lightly re-close it, that way it was more controllable like an old floor jack, when you loosen it

Isn't that the manual relief valve right below the label (bottom center)?

My first thought, too. But not.

Not yet on doing any work, but the manual is great. Swamped at work for the next several days, so it's weekend work only right now. By then, I expect I'll have that manual section memorized!

Thanks, again. :bowdown
