Welcome,this question may need more than a single answer. Please post back with additional questions on this at any time.You don't have a power trim relay. Only the power trim solenoids. Do you have the separate trim motor and reservoir mounted in the boat? If so then the solenoid is mounted on the trim motor. The only other component is the trim switch on your control.
Relays are used with much newer two wire trim units. Solenoids are used with the older three wire trim motors.
We no longer rebuild trim motors we order them from Mercury or ARCO Marine.
I'm not sure what the part you are looking at is. a picture would help.
