  • Leaking Trim Pump

    Hi! I have a 87 Mariner 1987 135 hpThe trim tilt pump has started to leak.It seems to leak mostly when the motor isin the down position (although occassionally when it is tilted all the way up too) Leaksbad when motor is down, you can see fluid in the water. My question is this, any certain seals orings to change, or should I just change every seal? No work has ever been done on unit since new.

      Yes it's the v-6 marathon model. It is visible in the water. Now the motor is fully tilted up and looks like it's leaking near the bottom part of the assembly, near the two trim cylinders and the tilt cylinder

        I think you can get seal kit from merc for the cylinders. The o-rings for motor and pump were were hard to find, I now have source fro them.
