    I have a 280DP (dual prop) and it has a mechanical trim on it. Can it be converted to hydraulic or does anyone have any parts for the mechanical one?
    Mine has a stripped brass gear and is missing the electric drive motor. Any parts drives laying around out there?

    They are difficult to find. Have you checked ebay?

    I will check around. Does anyone know if the mechanical lift can be upgraded to a hydraulic lift? I could use some props too.
    I am installing a little Perkins diesel in place of the gas motor, so pitch on the props might need to be tweeked a little.

    Hi,

    I think there´s an hydraulic adaptor kit for this drive, do you have an engine AQ250?, 250A?, 230¿¿¿
