Sometimes at the top in between the shaft to the ram and the seal, it leaks a little bit.

How hard of a job is it to get the cylinder cap off and replace those seals?

Can I do this while leaving the whole unit on the boat? Or do I have to remove the entire tilt and trim assembly.

Main problem is removing the piston in the cylinder so the rod will come out. Special tool for the cap.
