Can you tell where it's leaking from? I ask because mine was leaking from where the plastic top part joins the pump body and I was able to get a new seal and fix it.

Trim and tilt nightmare..

On closer inspection having removed the unit at the weekend we have found a pin hole on the back of the ram just above the spine above a ball bearing if that makes sense..
Does anybody have a power trim and tilt unit for a 60hp, Mariner, 3 cylinder. It s the two wire type with a yellow filler plug... Cannot believe the weather is good and we are stuck with the rib laid up
Thanks
Colin and Elizabeth

No need to be "laid up".

Take the "bottom stop" pin & park it at an appropriate hole. Then turn the "emergency release" screw (somewhere on the side) to "release". Then you just have to run with a traditional manual tilt / fixed trim" intil such time as you can get a replacement part.

Not ideal, but better than being ashore!
