Mercury/Mariner(###) ###-####D: I have a 1987 75 hp Mariner outboard

Customer Question

I have a 1987 75 hp Mariner outboard (model(###) ###-####D)and having a problem with the tilt and trim system. The tilt cylinder will raise the motor but will not lower the motor all the way down, it stops when it gets to the trim cylinders. If I open the manual release valve, the motor will drop down all the way. The systems hydraulic fluid level is good.
Thanks Ed.

Hi Ed, my name is ***** ***** go all the way down if somebody stands on the tail of the lower unit while pushing trim down at the same time?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
No, we tried that.
Expert:  Jason replied 2 years ago.
It sounds like you need a new trim unit then. Did you need help with part numbers?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
No, I have all the part numbers. Getting the parts is another matter.
Expert:  Jason replied 2 years ago.
Nobody fixes these units. When they stop working you throw them away and get another. Did you have any questions that I might be able to help you out with?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
Not at this time.

Okay good luck!
