Default average repair cost of trims

Hi All,

I just bought a 1993 maxum 2300SRC

It turns out the trims dont work.

When trying to operate the trims they dont move but i can clearly hear a motorized noise when pushing the buttons.

so i guess its not an electrical issue.

does anyone know if this is easily repairable.. or what a mechanic would charge for it?

thx!

Welcome Aboard

Are you talking about the outdrive trim or trim tabs? I would first check the fluid level in the reservoir. Does it move in either direction?

Welcome aboard.
Mike is right.
If the motor and pump running have to be the fluid 50% of the time and 50% the pump in your case.
If you need a new assembly, will be $300-700.
If you are in need for one I will try to find the best deal out there for you.

The seals on these can go bad. Make sure you're not leaking fluid past the seals. This would cause this behavior to occur.

hmm... that could explain that in the boat under the engine is a pool of black water.

What manufacture are your tabs, boatleveler, Bennet,...?

Typical leak would be the ram which is on the outside of the transom.

Yes the red one is the trim tab pump. The bottom of the pump (white) is the reservoir and has a full line indicator on it. The black screw in the center is the fill.
