  • Trim Tilt pin stuck

    I have a 1996 40HP Johnson with electric tilt and trim. The hydraulic cycliner is leaking so it needs to be rebuilt or replaced, however the top and bottm pins holding the unit are siezed. I tried to take tham out and failed, so I took it to a dealer who tried and failed. A slide hammer to the top pin will not budge it. The dealer thinks it siezed because it was in salt water.

    Any ideas on getting the pins out?

    I have a mild steel(brass is better) drift rod that I hit with a 3 lb one handed sledge hammer on that top pin and it eventually comes out. Mine is salt water also. Good luck

        The best thing I can tell you if it's been in salt water is heat heat heat and a big hammer and a brass drift. With a brass drift you won't mushroom the pin heads. If you do that you have big probs.

          The heat and a big hammer got both of the pins out. Thanks for the advice. Now I am hoping the pump can be rebuilt!
