Suzuki DF140 Trim Ram Seals


Has anyone had to replace the top trim ram seals on a Suzuki DF140? Mine are perished and one has just started to leak. Looks like a slightly enlarged angle grinder blade tool is required to undo.

Any tips?

Read this: Sacrificial anode or not

Spray the end caps with penetrating oil a couple of days before attempting the job. I'd look to improvise a tool rather than reaching for the lump hammer.

If hydraulic fluid is milky, then drain the lot. Not sure what Suzuki use, but I used Mobil ATF220 for my Tohatsu when trim motor needed overhaul.
Is that with or without VAT?
