Brandon Hutson asks: Okay got the nuts on the side loosens but bolts not out becuase can turn them when I crank my top bolts to raise jack plate won’t slide up any pointers on how to unfreeze it , it’s not rusty but guess it’s stuck from sitting so long I put a jack under plate and jacked some but wants to pick my back of my boat up

The nuts on the adjuster bolts loosen the nuts underneath….might have to wiggle the engine a little when moving it baca use its jamming up…or whoever drill the wholes throw the hull drill them exact so it causing it to bind up either loosen the bolts where the motor touches the jackplate or the bolts go through the hull or both

I got adjust bolts loose just trying to free plate up to slide up and side bolts have the nuts off too

Try and loosen bolts where the jackplate and engine meet and try wiggling the engine up and and down to free the weight from the jackplate

Ima try jiggling it this afternoon

Spray the fuck out of it with pb blaster let it sit spray again
