Jackplate on a M19?

I have the original tohatsu 40 motor on my M19. Thinking about hooking up a tilt and trim and a jack plate. Anyone else done this? I sail in pretty skinny water sometimes. Thinking this might be a good improvement...

Re: M19 inspection ports

Thanks for the info and support. My tohatsu 40 is a tiller steer. Problem with steering with the engine is the tiller hits the side of the engine well quickly thereby limiting how far you can steer the boat. Thought the rudders were supposed to take care of the steerage.....???

Re: M19 inspection ports

Well...if it looks OK to you guys, I'll try to dunk her this week. Been putting most of my effort into the old 40 hp tohatsu. Did impeller, zink, new fuel hoses, found a donor motor and got the cdi off of it. Also got a power tilt and trim but don't think I'll be able to fit it. Motor has very good ...

M19 inspection ports

My M19 has 2 6" inspection ports on the cabin sole. These have been caulked up I assume because they leaked. I assume also these go to the water ballast tank. Are these factory? What is the purpose of them? I think I'm going to take them apart and silicone them but I still don't know what they'...

My Mac 19 has a couple 3/8" holes drilled into the bottom of the transom area. What are these for?

Mac 19 Tohatsu question

My 19 still has the original Tohatsu 40 long shaft 2 stroke motor. I just acquired a Tohatsu 40 parts motor. This motor has the tilt and trim hydraulic lift on it. Has anyone installed one of these tilt and trims on their 19?
