Help Tip: If you have a question that has not been answered to your satisfaction in the archives, it is always best to start a new thread of your own. By starting your own thread, you will receive the maximum number of views by forum members.

Below are some additional forum policies in hopes of all iboats members will follow, Thank you.

1. Please do not reply to old topics or hijack existing topics. Old topics of a technical nature are like a library book, Please do not write in them.

2. Old topics should be considered archives and used for reference only. Please do not reply to them.

3. Do not take over someone elseís topic (aka hijack) with your own question, even if it is similar. If you have a question that has not been covered to your satisfaction in the archives, it is always best to start a new topic of your own.

4. If you have a question for the original poster (OP) and the topic is over 30 days old, send the OP a PM, he may not even visit the forums any longer, or may not notice your question in the old topic.

5. By starting your own topic, you will receive the maximum number of views by forum helpers that may not even notice your question when itís posted at the end of someone elseís topic. And those answers will be specific to your particular issue.

6. Please do not post to topics that have been inactive for more than 3 months unless you are the original poster. We have very active forums and any topic that remains inactive for that long should be considered "dead". It is especially confusing when there is an entirely new question posted to an old topic.

7. Posting at the end of any topic is considered to be hijacking the original posters topic which in turn subjects the topic to be closed if it continues to happen thus not making it fair to the original poster in the future had for some reason he/she needed to return for additional information or provide an update of the problem solved which is always welcomed within a reasonable amount of time frame.

8. Please note that you should see a red banner pop up near the bottom of each inactive topic asking you not to reply to old topics. The Red banner will read: Please note this topic has been inactive for 90 days. For the best results, please start a new topic.

Thank you all in advance for doing your part in helping iboats run a smooth ship.

  • TILT TRIM

    Could someone tell me what (part #?) tilt trim ram/cylinder I might need for this outdrive?

    If this direct link works for you, here will be your parts catalog under your serial number 4202233845 for both the stern drive unit and "Transom Shield", https://www.volvopentashop.com/EPC/e...ions%2F7746270
    If the direct link don't work, try inputting your serial numbers into the search bar on top.

    ^ But for us to help find parts for the trim cylinder system, we'd need to know your "Transom Shield" serial or product number to help narrow down what Transom Shield "Model" type you have as there are a few and without being an actual Volvo penta dealer being able to look up your/A registered stern drive serial number to possibly find your Transom Shield (or engine model) serial number, everything would be just a guess on our part as to which parts or parts section you truly need to help find the correct part numbers regarding the trim system.

    Transom Shield numbers will look about the same as the stern drive numbers but usually they'll have/start with "TSK" in place of the DPS-A.

      If you haven't passed out when seeing what a new ram costs, if it just a leaking ram there are places that repair heavy equipment rams quite cheap. I have seen quite a few posts where people have done just that. I have also seen repair kits for them that you can buy also. When I owned a back-hoe I did just that. Good luck Dave-R

          Thanks guys! I started tearing into them yesterday and eventually got them off and torn down. Rebuild kit off eBay has been ordered.. Overall it went well. Hopefully I can say the same about the assembly. The joys of boat ownership, right?!?!

            A tip, drop the seals in hot water to make then a bit softer & pliable, as you are reassembling you will understand why.

              Received the kit and rebuilt both cylinders. Not horrible. I'd go on a limb and say I'm decently mechanically but many of you would laugh at my small tool collection. I ended up having to Dremel out a notch on a washer that would slide around the ram cylinder itself so I could place it on the cylinder cap and smack it down to removed the retainer ring. In hindsight I'd say it's probably a 6.5 out of 10 on the difficulty scale for a do it yourselfer. As far as bleeding out the system...definitely have a helper. Doing it myself, getting in and out of the boat, under a monster swim deck, all with a bad knee...GIANT P.I.T.A.!!! Oh well...it's done now. Thanks for the input!
