  • LF150 TXR trim tilt problem

    The motor will not trim/tilt up. Boat is in the water. I used the release screw and was able to get the motor up. The trim motor sounds fine and no oil slick around the pistons. The two trim pistons are still fully recessed so unable to check for fluid level. Can anyone give me some advise on what to do next? Is there a way to get the two trim pistons to manually extend?
    Thanks

    if the pump motor runs its most likely out of fluid.

      Get it out of the water, put the engine on the MANUAL LEVER TO SUPPORT IT, then try.

      The rams have to be fully extended to check the fluid/top off.

      To clarify, the trim motor runs when the button is pushed UP AND DOWN??

        Thanks for your input. I pulled the boat and checked the fluid level. I wasn't able to add very much before it overflowed. After running both motors up and down together to compare I found that the one in question was struggling during the trim phase or lower phase of the lift, as soon as it hit the second stage or tilt piston it ran fine. Could there be another issue causing this?
        Thanks again,
        Chris

          Just to confirm, you topped off the fluid with ALL THE RAMS extended and the engine held up with the MECHANICAL LEVER?

          You may have to run the trim up and down several times to get all the air out and top off again.


          If that doesn't fix it, you likely have issues inside.

          Someone else will chime re that

            Also, if you leave the engine tilted UP on the mechanical lever, then push DOWN on the trim switch, it should pull those TRIM RAMS IN (and out).

            You can then work those alone, but stop once you get to their limits..

              Thanks again for the input. Yes they cycle now, just alot slower then the right side motor. Cycled and checked thre evolutions, I'll try cycling it more and check the level. If that doesn't work could the seals / o-rings inside be the cause?

                IDK, but I would think so.

                Someone more knowledgeable will have to chime in.

                  Still sluggish after cycling and adding during the lower lift with the 2 pistons.

                    Thanks for the input. Haven't seen any wetness around the seals. The 2 motors are 2007. The ran identicle righ up until this current issue. Wondered if the internal orings need attention?
