I thought that was normal. The trim system has a pressure valve in it, so over certain revs, (pressure) it will trim it down to 12 degres? or it wont let you trim up over a certain angle. Something along those lines?

Having recently stripped one of it's cousins, I think that TD is right - there's a pressure relief valve, older ones had it built in to rhe piston ,newer is in the manifold under the motor) I think to stop you lifiting it clear of the water when under power.

The properly old Merc/Mar systems had a switch to stop it being motored all the way up unless in neutral. It cut the power to the motor before the swivel bracket "escaped" from between the clamp brackets, I think primarily to stop you conrnering uneder power & bending the tilt tube. (you could do that & still keep the water inlet under the surface)

Does it meander back down on it's own? That would hint there's air in the system.
