Pacific trim ram

Hi all

Is there anyone out there who has or can tell me where i can get hold of a trim ram for a Sternpower 101 outdrive, new or secondhand, a little bit desperate, as i need my rib back in the water for the bank holiday.

Many thank in advance.

Ian

Hi Des

It is perferated just under where the hose runs across the top of the ram, i think it has been touching and that is why it has eaten through.

I was hopeing i could get away without contacting Lancing marine

many thanks
Ian

All depending on how bad the internals are but these rams shouldnít be too bad to repair. The outer alloy sleeve is only there to get oil to the far end of the ram and does not have a piston running on the inside surface so this surface does not need to be smooth (within reason). This means that by welding it up you can get the ram working again. Round bar through the bottom hole, an adjustable on the top square block and the ram comes apart Des

Hi Des

Tryed to dril mine out, broke a couple of colbolt drills and still wouldn't shift, so ended up wacking the sh**e out of the big pin and it came out.

removed the ram and stripped it, the casing has now been cleaned up and i am going to get it welded or plated tomorrow.

Once again many thank for the directions

Ian
