Suzuki DF25 V twin tilt

Hi

Wondered what the feasibility would be to fit power tilt to the above engine, which is only supplied with manual tilt.
Alternatively any tips how to make it easier to do manually?

Cheers

Woody!

Not sure regards conversion to electric or gas-assist lift. I used to have a Yamaha 25DM on the back of a Zodiac MkII GT. To lift, I used to place my right foot on the transom edge and then levered the engine using the grab handle integrated into the engine cowl. If the engine is well-lubed at the points on the transom bracket - it should lift easily enough.

We have a customer who insisted that we put some form of powertilt/trim on his DF25 V Twin.
We fitted a powertrim transom made by CMC in the States. Although we got it from the distributor in Southern Ireland. System works fine., PM or call me on 01903 762610 if you want more details.
Aquatec.

yes, I agree with Aquatec, the CMC-Cook model is PT35, a highly reliable unit, easy to install.
I sold several ones - this one, plus PT130 too, plus PL65 jacks, good stuff !
