So my leaky PTT has reared it's ugly head once again!
Coming back from a short trip last week I noticed the trim wasn't holding when under way. I replaced the o rings in the PTT unit last year and did notice some putting around the surface of the main tilt cylinder, however replacing the o rings fixed the leak until now. (I didn't buy the merc o ring kit, just measured the old ones and ordered the correct size).
Whipped the unit off the engine yesterday and replaced the o rings once again. When I refitted and filled the unit it was clear the leak was still there.
The last pic shows the damage on the main tilt cylinder.
Is this repairable/salvageable?
If it was machined to get a clean flat surface would it make any difference?
Or should I be on the look out for another PTT unit??
Any advice would be most welcome??
