    Well look what came in today!

    I think there are a couple of things like the spring and some washers that aren't stainless steel so I'll have to change those out before they rust. I'm going to keep my stock trim motor on just in case I end up not liking the manual trim system so I won't be needing the block off plate. I kind of want to find a quick start button and a kill switch/stop button assembly and put that in the place of the start/stop/trim/bilge assembly.

    Only question would be how would I operate the bilge pump?

    Niiiice. They work pretty good.
    For the bilge, you can get a switch and guard to mount on the bars.
    If you have a bar pad and can't mount to the bars you can mount a waterproof pushbutton switch on the center console somewhere as well??
    Or of course wire the bilge to come on whenever you start your water craft, they last for years running dry.
    One more option I can think if real quick is wiring in a float type bilge so that it runs whenever water is present, no switches needed, just full time power and a ground wire.

    Are there any assemblies that only have a start and stop/lanyard button? Maybe use the start button as the bilge on for when the boat isn't running. I've needed that button....several times!!

    If you don't use the trim block off plate, you have to hook the return spring on a bolt in the arm hole coming off of the trim motor lever,
    See my set up below, I am making mine an auto drop and manual lever,
    I use the manual lever on my hole shot start, but only for about 3 seconds off the line,
    Also get you a duckbill drain set up, it will keep your bilge dry,

    yes 93 and 94 sl650's just have the red stop button on the handle bar. You can get them on ebay used for pretty cheap. I think I bought one new for $35 a couple years ago

    It would be interesting if there was a way you could still use the electric trim with the manual trim. Hmm...time to put the engineering skills to work!

    Well, I don't think this would ever work simply because of the fact that the cable used to pull the lever mounted on the pump would need to stretch in order to raise the trim up.

    Here is the sketch that might work if there is some way the cable could be unhooked. Basically the rod attached to the trim clutch (the white plastic wheel attached to the trim motor) is allowed to slide so when the handle is pulled to dunk the nozzle, the rod would extend by having a smaller rod within a larger rod. The spring would have to be stronger in order to pull the nozzle to full trim up.

    Just brainstorming for the hell of it...it obvioulsy wouldn't ever work.
