CONVERSION KIT DOES NOT INCLUDE

Step 1: Start by taking your motor off of the jack plate.
Step 2: Remove the old manual jack from the top and bottom “C CHANNEL” mounting brackets.
Step 3: Remove the top and bottom “C CHANNEL” mounting brackets by un bolting them (remember which bracket goes on the top and which one goes on the bottom, it matters). BE SURE TO USE AN IMPACT DRILL WHEN TAKING THE BOLTS OUT. The bolts could have oxidation on them which makes them a bit sticky. You do NOT want to strip these bolts out as it will make the conversion much harder to accomplish.
Step 4: Get a 5/16” drill bit to drill out the 3 quarter inch predrilled holes that already exist in the mounting brackets. These holes need to be 5/16” inches round in order for the new mounting hardware to fit inside them. Be sure to secure these bracket down when drilling. DO NOT FREE HAND THESE WHILE DRILLING OUT THE NEW HOLES.
Step 5: Re mount the top and bottom “C CHANNEL” mounting brackets to the jack plate housing.
Step 6: Mount the electric actuator into the bottom “C CHANNEL” bracket first. Then mount the top part of the electric actuator into the top “C CHANNEL” bracket. The electric actuator should look like the picture below when finished mounting.
Step 7: Mount your UP/DOWN switch to the tiller handle using the Velcro strap that came with the conversion kit or drill out the rest of the 2 holes on the back of the UP/DOWN switch to permanently mount to the boat.
Step 8: Connect the positive (red wires) to the positive terminal on your battery and the negative (black wire) to the negative terminal on your battery. Once you have completed these steps you are ready to go!
