You remove a pin at the bottom of the tilt ram to remove it also. Biggest problem is having to remove the piston from the rod so you can change the top cap seals. You need a really good, big vise, like a milling machine vise. Replacing the seals will fix a leak down problem about 25 % of the time, especially on an older unit. Many times the tilt cylinder is scratched or scored and can`t be repaired. Parts are over 100 dollars as the seals only come in a kit. 2 kits to get all you need.#6 and #13. http://www.boats.net/parts/search/Merc2/...ents/parts.html
You need a sprag wrench to remove the seal caps another 80+ dollars.
