Tilt Trim

Recommended Posts

Anyone have a Gas assisted Tilt Trim .I found one on Ebay . In the event i cant fix my electric powered i was thinking cheap replacement . I am told it lift the engine and you need to push it down . Do you need to top up the gas ?

Can you hear the motor run?

Mine packed up half way up and wouldn't go up or down, the motor was running, it was low on hydraulic oil.

I stripped it and replaced a faulty O'Ring and it's as good as new now.

The motor made normal noise as i lowed but stopped no noise i released the pressure screw and the engine went down  I lifted it all the way up and tighten the screw it held . So i know its not the ram . i can hear a slight click when i press the rocker switch .So trying to get the hole unit off 3 x bolt corroded snapped off have to drill them out then find one bolt is placed in from the back so have to take the hole engine off the boat to get at it . Decided to cut it off and re tape a tread later.Hope it just the brushes . gas assist is plan B

I would check the relay first

Remove wires may be two or three from the relay and connect to a car battery.

Being DC polarity is not important as it should run one way or the other.

If it runs it's not the brushes
