Headhunter Posted October 17, 2020 Report Share Posted October 17, 2020 Tilt and trim not working right on the pathfinder. 200hp SHO had the tilt, trim assembly rebuilt 2019 under warranty. Left the boat a couple of weeks with the engine tilted all the way up. When I went to lower it it kind of jerked on the way down and made a squealing noise. Raised it up no problem and lubed the rams and stops and tried again. No squeal but the motor slowed much more than normal when it hit the rams. At that point the trim motor seems like it was straining to get the motor all of the way down. The more you try it the worse it gets and finally stops completely but up seems to be better than down. So far I have checked and cleaned every connection I could find, check the fluid level, full, checked the battery and finally swapped it for a new one. The motor goes down smoothly by the manual release. Did I miss anything? I am thinking trim motor but not sure what goes on inside the unit. Thanks in advance all!
