Hello. My name is Tan.

Does the engine have any trim components now? If no you will need to find a donor motor to out fit the engine. If you have to buy the components new it will be very expensive. Just one trim cylinder is $453.24 that doesn't include the bracket or any of the other components. Here is a link to the motor parts.

The trim pump assembly is very expensive also. Here is a link.

I will look for these components in use if you like.
