The other day my tilt and trim finally gave up. It has been weak despite cleaning the connections in the engine and testing on multiple batteries. Therefore, I have narrowed it down the the motor and so did the mechanic/fisherman at the boat ramp who helped me manually lift the motor on the transom saver. Well I'm not a certified mechanic, but I'm pretty handy working on electrical/engine work on boats and vehicles. Apparently since "they don't make those motors anymore," he said i have to buy a whole new tilt/trim system for 1200-1400 plus labor. However, when pulling the original tilt/trim motor it matches several products I have found on amazon and eBay. Has anyone ran into this problem and if so could I just replace the motor? I'm thinking, since he is a mechanic, he uses factory parts and doesn't use aftermarket/ off brand replacements.
