Default Mercruiser Alpha One Line Leak

I have a small leak coming from the trim line

im guess that's what its called.

there are 4, 2 on each side that look like there metal and braided
they goto the trim hydraulics

are these easy to replace? anything special that needs to be done once there changed?

does anyone know a good place to get them?

Thank you

Use a tube wrench to loosen the fittings on the trim hose. Itís like a open wrench but only slightly open to provide a better grip.

The system is self bleeding just need to keep trim pump tank topped off.

No it will not spray out.

You can find them about anyone place, WM, Defender, Amazon, eBay. Sorry donít know the part number.

If not leaking bad it may be ok to use however if the fluid level gets too low the drive may kick up while under way.

The system is self-bleeding. Don't overfill the reservoir.
