Your outboard’s power trim and tilt unit changes the outboard’s thrust angle during operation for maximum performance of both your outboard and your boat.
It’s electro-hydraulic, meaning an electric pump moves hydraulic fluid upon command from the operator, tilting the thrust angle out or in.
It’s positioned inside the engine bracket, meaning almost constant contact with water, and, depending on where you boat, that can mean saltwater. Still, under normal conditions, this system needs only minimal care to function properly.
