Mariner 2 stroke 50PTO 2001
The Tilt & Trim doesn't work very well, as in when you press the button to raise or lower the outboard, the motor starts instantly but nothing happens for a while!, ive given it a gentle helping lift and its carried on lifting once its started. Its even been the same lowering it which surprised me as I thought it would go down easily on its own weight ! (the battery is OK)
Could this just be a case of low on oil ?, & if this is the case, what oil should I use to top it up ?
is it more likely to be hydraulic failure ? & how would I diagnose whether its the pump or the ram (the ram does weep a tiny bit judging by the oil around the shaft seal) - are these jobs best sent to off to a pro or are they relatively straight forward job !)
Does anyone know where I can down load user manual & a repair manual for this outboard please (or even better has anyone got a paper copy for sale please
), ive had a look in the downloads section on here but couldn't see it & done a few searches but not found it yet !
