It will raise and lower ok, it just drops slowly but consistently while on tow. I canít see any fluid leaking out from round the seal on the piston though the piston itself is probably wetter than you would expect on a split new unit.

I havenít looked closely at this yet because the problem only manifested itself on the drive back from Anglesey yesterday but does anyone have experience of this or pointers regarding where to look?

Cheers,

Dan
I have a simular problem on my tohatsu 90.when it is trimed up and i lean on it it goes down.it is not losing fluid.i asked a outboard bloke about it and he thinks a seal inside is gone allowing the fluid to seap back into resivior and engine to drop.hense no fluid leaking out.sorry about spelling

Yes, after 6 years no problems at all.


Make sure you oil them fairly regularly though or they like to stiffen up.

Well that's actually encouraging in an 'it could be worse' kind of way... i can lean pretty hard on mine and it doesn't go down.

Paddlers... I don't suppose you could take a pic of your Heath Robinson setup next time it's convenient?

If i trim mine all the way down then trim up and stop at any point i can stand on it and it dosnt move..if i stop while triming down it will move.once it gets to small trim rams its fine.its never moved while towing!
